Kids Star in God’s Story

Kids starred in God’s story during our Vacation Bible School, June 20th through 24th. This year’s theme was a second take of an oldie but goodie, Holy Word Studios. Thirty three children experienced how God cares for us, protects us, loves us, and is always with us. Kids made t-shirts, frames, and butterflies to help them remember their experience. They participated in wild games and lively music. Even snack time related to the theme each day. Thank you to the many volunteers who helped build the faith of children at VBS.
