Children Learn to Shine Jesus’ Light

Kids were launched into outer space to learn how to Shine Jesus’ Light during our 2023 Vacation Bible School. Good Shepherd’s sanctuary was transformed to into a Stellar experience with backdrops that included stars, a black hole, and other celestial images. Planets and an astronaut hung in the air while another astronaut was standing next to a lunar lander.

Lessons included a Bible story and Bible point based on the daily Bible verse. Each evening began with Sing and Play Blast Off where kids were introduced to the Bible point of the day with a skit, danced to songs, and prayed. The evening continued with active learning. Bible stories were brought to life in Bible Adventures. In Imagination station they learned through science experiments related to the Bible Point of the day. Kids enjoyed snacks related to each day’s theme. After snacks kids made picture frames, t-shirts, and planets to remember what they learned. Cosmic Closing rounded out each evening with skits, science demonstrations to reinforce learning, dancing to music, and prayer.
