This year, the United Methodist-related Society of St. Andrew introduces “It’s A Miracle!” as its Vacation Bible School mission program. Each day of VBS, students will be introduced to one of Jesus’ miracles; from feeding the multitudes to cleansing the lepers. Included in your VBS packet are student sheets containing a short Scripture story, facts about hunger and the SoSA ministry, Go Green statistics, mission adventure opportunities, and a pencil activity.

Also included are song suggestions, craft ideas, and yummy snack choices for each day of your VBS that compliment the “Miracle of the day!” All of the pages are reproducible, so you can make as many copies as you have students.

This year, make the Society of St. Andrew’s Potato Project your VBS mission. Our complete VBS program is free of charge and there’s no obligation. You can order your packet by e-mailing the Rev. Jennifer Vestal Moore at Church@EndHunger.org or call 800-333-4597. You can also order or download online at www.endhunger.org/vbs.htm.

The Society of St. Andrew Potato and Produce Project and Gleaning Network salvage potatoes and other fruits and vegetables that are perfectly good and nutritious, but can’t be sold because of market factors. Instead of letting God’s good food go to waste, Society of St. Andrew volunteers glean these fruits and vegetables. The potatoes are shipped in tractor-trailer loads throughout the nation at a cost of just a little more than 5¢ a pound. All of the fruits and vegetables gleaned are given free of charge to feeding agencies.
