Vacation Bible School (vbs)

Every year during summer vacation, we have VBS. It is one of the highlights of summer. This year our VBS was held from April 20-24 and our theme was "Arrow Island: Choosing God's Way". 

Every day from 8:30am -11:30am we were joined by an average of 125 kids. We organized the kids into four different age groups with each group going to a different activity for about 30 minutes and then rotating again to a new section where they enjoyed a new activity. The different sections included a Bible story/lesson, crafts, games, memory verse/singing, and snack. On the last day there was an extra special event. The volcano that we had been using as a prop had an eruption! The kids really were surprised by that!

At the end of each day the kids enjoyed a special skit that emphasized what they had learned. We also passed out prizes for the best artists, best listeners, those who brought the most visitors, as well as for those who memorized the Bible verse for the day. On the last day, all of the kids received a special certificate for completing VBS. 

We thank the Lord for giving us a successful VBS. We are thankful for the good weather and protection that He provided and we rejoice that we were able to share the gospel with these precious kids. We are also so grateful for all of the incredible volunteers who helped make this VBS possible. In addition, a special thank you to Belmont Bible Church for supplying the curriculum for our VBS.

We hope you enjoy seeing the pictures, but if you would like to watch the video highlights from our VBS, please click here and you can see them on youtube.

Thank you for your continual prayers. We ask that you please pray for our Mother's Day program this Sunday, May 10 as well as for an AWANA training seminar that our church will be hosting May 11-12.
