Message from Pastor Barksdale
If you are watching this video, then you’ve probably received our email that we have had to cancel VBS for the summer of 2018.
I know that you are disappointed in this decision. We are disappointed as well. However, given the number of kids registered, and the number of volunteers, we simply could not pull off a VBS that is safe and effective for our children.
As I have talked with my counterparts around Tallahassee, and the country, to find out what they are doing about VBS, it varies. Some have capped the number of children based on the number of volunteers, some have switched to an evening format, still others have added Backyard Bible Clubs or All-Day Camps. I’ve been in Children’s Ministry for nearly 28 years and understand that programs and events have life-cycles. So, we are trying to assess whether this summer is just a blip on the screen or a cultural shift in Tallahassee.
Our mission in Children’s Ministry at Wildwood is to come alongside you as parents to make disciples of your children.
Parents, you will be receiving a survey in the next couple of days to help us assess the best ways we can come along side you.
Please take the time to fill out the survey, it will help us to effectively plan. Thanks again to all of you who signed up to volunteer and showed an interested in our programs.
Barksdale Pullen, III
Community Life Pastor
