Sherman UMC had an awesome Vacation Bible School 2015!

SUMC’s 2015 Vacation Bible School – Shining Star – wrapped up with a special presentation on Sunday morning June 28. We talked about the lessons we had learned throughout the week and sang and danced to two special songs. One of those songs – “We Are Shining Stars” – was an SUMC original composition written with the help of our younger elementary age class. Current news and events played an important part of the faith discussions of the older grade classes. Together we learned much about what living out our faith means in today’s world.

Below is a list of the week’s themes and foci.
