This week, children from all over the community — and a few visiting the area — joined us for Vacation Bible School. Our theme was “Creation” — looking at all of the amazing things that God created in the beginning.
Before the week began, the decoration team transformed Bethlehem Hall into a star-studded, fish-frolicking wonderland.
In music class, Sarah, Debbie, and Stu led the kids in singing praises to our Lord. Those songs are now stuck in our heads!
Over in arts and crafts, every day the children made a project to take home with them.
They also created a Creation book with verses and pictures from the Genesis 1 story.
The students got to make new friends while hanging out with old ones as well!
Our awesome blue shirt volunteers gave their love, energy, and (vacation) time to making sure that VBS was a big hit!
Even the smallest kids got the best of care.
At the end of our first day, the kids had a “Light Parade” with flashlights!
We also enjoyed time together as a big group, practicing our memory verses and playing large-scale games.
We loved it when the kids got up there to help lead us in song, prayer, and scripture!
The snack crew made these tasty themed treats every day!
It was great to see several generations come together for this ministry.
Kids have a lot of energy? Run it out of them!
Thank goodness that Steve was there to keep order at gym time.
