The church seems so quiet after a week of hundreds of kids laughing, crafting, and having the best time learning about and worshiping Jesus at VBS last week.
This year's theme "The Pirates" was a big hit with our kids...and our volunteers, who readily dressed the part of pirate captains. We're so grateful for our middle school and adult volunteers who gave a lot of time and energy to help kids learn about Jesus--some for the very first time! They decorated their rooms, taught music and crafts, served food, assisted with recreation, led us in worship, and most importantly, displayed a love for Jesus that overflowed. To our pirate captains, thank you for leading and loving these kids last week!
- Our average daily attendance was 1,093 kids & volunteers.
- We had 45 kids make a decision for Jesus!
Pray for us as my team and I follow up with these children and their families. We hope to introduce some of them to you through baptism in the coming months.
- Our kids raised $2,137.05.
This generous offering will be used t o send kids in Lebanon and Israel to camp. Most of these kids have never heard about Jesus! I'm always blown away by the generosity of these little ones and how much they give.
One of everyone's favorite parts of VBS is always our time in the worship center. The modern worship band leads our kids in praising Jesus through fun, energetic songs; a skit helps set up the message for the day; and I have the privilege of sharing the gospel. This year we learned that Jesus is our true treasure!
Watch the recap video below!
Keep the worship going!
