Shining Light

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

There was dance. There was singing. There were multi-colored crowns. There was a disco-ball. And smiles lit up the room. The First Baptist Church Meridian was filled to standing-room only, and at least 110 children from pre-school to sixth grade ages danced and sang to Shine, this year’s catchy Vacation Bible School theme song as friends and family came out for fellowship.
