VBS is easily the highlight of the summer for us. While everything that we do is a great
opportunity to learn and grow, VBS is our chance to implement a little bit of what we’ve learned.
It also happens to be an absolute blast, having fun with kids and fellow helpers all week!
This year’s theme for VBS was “Build on the Rock”, and as many of you probably saw,
we turned the whole church into a construction themed zone. There was a wheelbarrow out front,
caution signs on every wall, and even a few dump trucks trundling about. The kids loved it,
especially the caution tape they had to walk through as they entered church.
The day usually began with a short devotion and a skit, acting out the Bible Story for the
children in an easily understood format. Then we would break up into our groups, and each
teacher would teach the lesson again to their kids. This was a great way to reinforce the central
message of the day. After that the groups broke out into different areas, learning music, making
crafts, and getting a chance to eat snack and play outside. Finally, we’d gather back together to
hear one more message from pastor, before going home for the day.
