A good morning at worship and I got to entertain everyone a little with a very corny VBS recruiting video clip. It did get a few more recruits to sign up and one lady who signed up to do the Bible stories said a good thing.... "We go with what we have and just have larger groups if necessary." Guess it is time to trust God to handle the people needs as I've held on to that rope too long. I also subbed at the last minute for the Jr. High class which was very simple as it was just Maegann and one other girl. We walked across the street to the grocery store for donuts and then went back to their classroom and played a game. They had fun.
After lunch I got busy tackling desk work and first up was creating the VBS timeline for publicity. I'd put it off because of the "are we canceling" thought. A huge task done! Next I got the paid work "to do" list caught up and sent notes to the two families that have due dates next month. Then it was time to pay the first-of-the-month bills. I could then start Sparking. Next stop will be the sofa and cross-stitching.
Tomorrow we are supposed to be hosting friends from co-op for lunch and games about 11. That will be fun. I bought individual pizza rounds from Bountiful Basket, salad pre-mix, some sausage to cook up, cheese to grate and sauce from a jar at the store so it won't be too much work for me to pull off.
