Members of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Winchester are spreading joy for patients at the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital. The church is collecting toys, books and other gifts for the hospital's Jarrett's Joy Cart program, which distributes the donated gifts to young patients. "We chose Jarrett's Joy Cart as our mission project for VBS because of Holden Bishop and Laura Griffith, who have both spent time in UK Children's Hospital and received toys from the Joy Cart," Lora Birkes, a church member, explained.

News from God's Big Backyard: Our Bible school was blessed with eager, attentive children and willing workers. Our theme was been "Service". Our focus: Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and your neighbor as yourself. Each evening we took an imaginary trip to someone's backyard. Monday, we walked along the Nile and visited Pharaoh's backyard. Tuesday we traveled though the market of Capernaum to get to a home that had a big hole in the roof. Wednesday, we took the 17 mile hike down the rugged road from Jerusalem to Jericho to an inn. We were very careful to walk quietly past the caves of the robbers.
