Our VBS this year was an epic success! We served 100 children throughout the week from our congregation and community.
Our theme this year was Hero Central: Discover your Strength in God. The children learned Hero Codes each day such as God’s Heroes Have Heart, Courage, Wisdom, Hope and Power. They heard Bible stories to go along with each code such as Samuel Anoints David, Deborah, Jesus at the Temple, The Beatitudes and Pentecost. The walked away knowing the Bible verse of the week and boy did could they say that verse with enthusiasm! “Do good. Seek peace and go after it!” – Psalm 34:14b
Our mission project during the week was collecting items to make Blessing Bags, so that the children could learn in a small way how they can be a hero in their own community. Overall, it was a fantastic week where the children were called into action to seek peace and to help others.
Stay tuned for details about VBS in 2018! We look forward to serving this community with another fun-filled week!
