Jaidyn and Madisyn are getting measured up to the 9 ft Goliath and 5’2” David created by Steve and Sue Barney on the wall of the Peoples Presbyterian Church.

Milan Peoples Presbyterian Church hosted a MEGA Sports Camp as their Vacation Bible School in July.
It was very well attended with kids from 13 other churches and everyone left with the knowledge that MEGA = ME (and) God Always!!
So as never to forget that important promise, all the children made MEGA t-shirts.
The church was transformed into a sports arena where we heard about 4 different professional athletes who suffered major set backs in their lives but pulled through with courage and their strong faith in God that He would make them whole again.
David and Goliath was our Bible Story of the week as we dug deep into the story to be able to understand the true background of events. It is our hope that everyone can find the “David” within them when we are faced with our own personal Goliaths. One day everyone put their “David” on and walked out of VBS many inches taller than they came in . . . ask someone who attended how that was possible!
Our Outreach Project was to bring in canned dinner food to give to Aid in Milan so all the children of Milan can have a nutritious, warm dinner. We collected 97 cans.
Our Mission Project was to have our nightly offerings to be donated to the Washtenaw County Special Olympics. We had three local athletes join us for worship one night and they talked about their sports and showed us their many ribbons and medals they had earned. We were able to collect $356.01 for the advancement of this very worthwhile organization.
Our Friday Grand Finale celebration included an one hour show of the professional Frisbee performers, The Flying Aces, at Paddock’s gymnasium!
Thank you to everyone who participated in MEGA Sports Camp both as a student or as an adult volunteer.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again next July. Always anxious to meet new friends, come join us!!
