Cow-a-bunga!


Watts Memorial United Methodist Church in Belleville, Pa., held Vacation Bible School in July in conjunction with West Kish Presbyterian Church and St. John’s Lutheran Church. The theme was Cow-a-bunga! A total of 27 children participated, which was a significant increase over the prior two years.

Douglas Pierce, pastor at Watts Memorial UMC, set a goal for the children to raise $50 for Heifer International Project. This would allow them to donate one share of a cow to help world hunger. He told them that he would kiss a cow if they reached the goal. With the help of all three churches, $2,000 was raised, which allowed them to donate four full cows, and, yes, Pastor Pierce kissed a cow.

“God blessed us greatly and in turn allowed us to bless others more than we ever thought possible,” said Pierce.
