Students who attended this week’s First United Methodist Church’s Vacation Bible School or — Sweat Week — put in a lot of time giving back to the community.

The program was held this week at the church and was for children ages 4 through fifth grade.

“We make items to donate locally, like a pillow for each foster child to receive when they are brought to DHR, and a teddy bear for the moms at Sav-a-Life. We also do some projects for our church, like art for the classrooms, bulletin boards and planters that help beautify our children’s wing,” said organizer Katie King.

King said around 50 students attended the event, which was considered a success.

 Children also took the time to decorate planters with flowers.
