Johns Run Sunday School Banner

I really loved Johns Run's skit. They had two boys walking on the stage and they came to a door. The one boy asked where it came from and the other said he didn't know. The first boy said it's shiny and makes me want to touch it (I thought this was really funny). Then they tried to open the door but it wouldn't open. A girl came along and she went through the door, so then they tried again but couldn't open it. Then another person went through. Someone else came along and ask what they were doing and they told him they were trying to get the door open. They tried to use money, keys, and physical strength but they couldn't get it open. The man that came along said that it wouldn't open with those things, they had to have special keys. The special keys were prayer, studying the Bible, and worship.

Another part I liked about their skit is there pastor (Delmar Rogers) went through the door. And the one boy said he was going to open the door with his strength but couldn't. The man said that strength wouldn't work and the other boy said that they found that out when Delmar went through. We all thought that was funny. Johns Run received 2nd place for their skit.

Bonser Run's Sunday School Banner

Bonser Run CBC banner theme was their Vacation Bible School theme. I really loved their skit. They had two adults, a teenage boy, and two teenage girls holding signs waiting for this singer (which was a made up character). They were talking about how excited they were to get to meet him and one girl said if he shook her hand she would never wash it again (LOL!). Then this guy come along and ask what they were doing and they told him that they were waiting for this guy. The other guy had never heard of him before and the others could not believe it. The guy then went on to say that the singer was just a regular guy like them and that they shouldn't worship him but they should worship God because he made everyone. When they were leaving they said they were going to church and this part I really loved, one of the teenage girl said, "I'm so over him!" It was a really good skit.

The verse on the banner says...

Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1

Sandhill's Sunday School Banner

Sandhill had a very unique banner. They used little photos of their church members to make this huge photo of Jesus, the lion, and the lamb. My mom really liked this banner. For their presentation they had their stick ministry group perform a song. Sandhill was awarded 2nd place for most in attendance. They received 1st place for most under 18 in attendance, 1st place for banner vote, and 3rd place for best theme.

Camp Bennett's Sunday School Banner

Camp Bennett CBC's banner was pieced together by the youth of their church. And they decided since it was a quilt that they would take secret bids and give the money to the missions fund. I believe I heard them say they received $75 for the quilt. For their presentation they sung a song and their church members held signs up that said things like single mom and I look different, but the whole theme was God uses broken pieces and lives to help others.

Also we were thrilled that Camp Bennett was awarded two awards. They received a plaque for 3rd place in Sunday School growth by percentage. Then all during the week of camp meeting each person is allowed to vote one time on their favorite banner. Camp Bennett received 3rd place in banner vote. They had a good number from their church come this year to the rally and we were so excited seeing so many from their church.

Camp Meeting Day 6 and Sunday School Rally

Friday night was the last night of camp meeting 2009 and God moved upon hearts again that night. People were going to the altar during the singing and when it was time for Brian to preach, he said he was going to sing. He sung "God's Been Good." Brian said that he has always wanted to described God's goodness but he never has been able too. So he said he would sing the song to tell people how good God's been to him and his family. He sung it once then he sung it again. The altars were lined. After the altar call they had some different people sing and they ended with all the groups from each service (10am, 2pm, and 7pm) to come to the stage and sing together. We are so blessed to have had an AWESOME camp meeting and I believe this is the first year that we have only had preaching for three nights in the evening and three nights we didn't have preaching. The holy spirit just simply moved upon people.

Saturday we had our Sunday School Rally they ended up having 14 churches that had banners. Each church will usually have a skit or song. It is so wonderful seeing what each church does. As promised here is photos of each banner and the name of each church that made the banner. For next couple of weeks I'll tell about each banner and post a bigger photo.
