We have been blessed to once again offer Vacation Bible School to members of our church family and their friends as well as our community. We are thankful for the opportunity to once again serve these young people with engaging activities and teaching from God’s Word.
The Morning Program, designed for children ages 4 years through those who will be entering 5th Grade in the Fall, centered around the “Gold Rush and Discovering the Rock of Ages.” Children had a fun-filled week of puppet shows, songs, crafts, and exciting stories from Scripture designed to reveal the Rock of Ages, Jesus Christ.
The Evening Program, offered to young people from 6 th -12 th grades, focused on “The Idols of Identity.” Scripture teaches us to worship God alone, and this program provided a profitable exploration of the idols that can and do turn our hearts and minds away from God. Following each night’s teaching, breakout groups by age group provided the opportunity to discuss the lesson and to explore ways to apply the lesson to our thinking and our daily lives. The Evening Program also included games for everyone, including KGB and, of course, the wildly popular Jell-O Fest.
We rejoice in the success of the Morning and Evening Programs, and we look forward to an opportunity to serve our young people again next year.
