For the second year in a row at Vacation Bible School we have done a "balloon" sendoff for whatever grade we have been teaching. This year was the 3rd graders turn. We picked red balloons this year so they were easily seen in the sky as they flew away. Attached to each and every balloon was a card with our church's name, phone number and website http://woodlawnbaptist.org plus the ABC's of how to become a Christian. Our hope is that someone would find the card and come to know Jesus as their personal savior. Last year the 2nd graders sent off the balloons and a lady in Georgia actually found one of the cards in her yard and called back to tell us.
After a short prayer, all the kids and teachers let their balloons go and we all watched from the church courtyard as they went "up up and away".
