VBS Finale

Vacation Bible School closed on Friday evening with our finale demonstrating the Bible stories children experienced throughout the week. Children learned how God calls us, God is strong, God forgives us, God saves us, and God protects us. Activities included Bible Adventures interactive drama, Imagination Station experiments, awesome crafts, and fun games. Of course what would our VBS finale be without getting the adults to experience the lessons the way the children learn them.

VBS is Here

Children learned how God calls us and that God is strong during our first two days of Vacation Bible School. The first day brought the story of Zebede and the calling of the disciples. On day two the children learned about Joshua and the wall of Jericho. Children will continue to participate in fun songs, interactive learning of bible stories through drama and experiments, crafts, and games throughout the rest of the week.
