VBS 2015 - Do Something KC
Old Mission wrote a Vacation Bible School (VBS) inspired by Matthew West's song, "Do Something" and the Charlie Hustle Heart KC shirts that are so popular in the community. We served 170 students through 6th grade last week. The week was spent learning about getting out there and making a difference in Kansas City by putting our love into action. The story of the Good Samaritan was retold in engaging and relatable ways for children through real good Samaritans in Kansas City. We invited community members to share how they are making a difference in our community by visiting in person and making videos. Families donated over $1,000 in cash to be distributed between Roesland Elementary, Hope House, Reach out and Read KC and Johnson County Food Pantry. Children also built a picnic table and planter boxes to donate to a local family through Habitat for Humanity and packed nearly 400 sack lunches for Homeless community through Neighbor 2 Neighbor in Westport. We had a great week with visitors from the community like Slugger, KC Wolf, a coach from Sporting KC, dancers from the Kansas City Ballet and local Soul band, JLove.
