Our church said “Thank You!” to our two Summer Dedicated Service workers, Vanessa Ormsby and Collin Green, on Sabbath July 20, 2019. Due to the efforts of these two college age people, along with their Project Director Susie Fox, our church has been able to complete three Kids Bible Clubs at Summit Ridge Estates, JFK Park in Reynoldsburg, and at the church in Pataskala. In addition to the Bible clubs, they also played a significant role in having a church booth at the Pataskala Fun Fair before the Fireworks on June 29, 2019 and were counselors for a week at Camp Joy in Berea, WV.
During the summer Vanessa & Collin also volunteered on Tuesdays & Thursdays at Didomi Redistribution Center for Non-Profit organizations, gave special Children’s Messages, testimonies, and special music during the Worship Service, and spent time getting to know the other people in the Pataskala Seventh Day Baptist Church.
Vanessa is visiting from Toronto, Ontario, Canada where her home church is located and she will resume her studies in college this fall. Collin is visiting from Milton, Wisconsin where his home church is located and where he also is continuing his college studies not far from there this fall. They are working under Seventh Day Baptist program called Summer Christian Service Corps (SCSC) which is a leadership program for college age students during the summer among selected Seventh Day Baptist churches.
On Thursday, July 25, the Summer Dedicated Service Team will be leaving to attend a few days of evaluation and then the Seventh Day Baptist General Conference annual session in Lancaster, PA. “Well Done!” Vanessa & Collin! Thanks for all your hard work in sharing the love of God and Good News of Jesus with so many people this summer!
