Elementary Spiritual Emphasis Week

"Uncle" Jerry Jacoby returned to VCS this year for Spiritual Emphasis Week. He sang songs with us, told us jokes and shared stories from the Bible that illustrate God's character and His love for us. One of the songs we sang was really difficult to understand, so each day Jerry would ask a student to come up and explain a line of the song. That student became our Philosopher for the Day and got to sit on the special Philosopher's Stool. In the picture above, the new Philosopher for the Day - a 5th grade student! - shakes hands with the departing philosopher. What fun!

Jerry ate lunch with the students and brought lots of smiles, laughter and fun wherever he went!
