Our annual VBS program is less than two months away! I am excited about the theme this year that will enable us to reach others in the community with the gospel message. It is a great experience to work with a group for a week and watch them grow in their relationship with our Lord.

This year, our VBS will focus around an epic African adventure where kids will explore the goodness of God as we plant seeds for the sprouting of a ferocious faith in our Lord. Every evening, the kids will participate in the opening celebration, attend a Wild Bible Adventure class, eat treats at the Hungry Herd Café, play Stampede Sports, build imaginative crafts and conclude with a closing ceremony. The main teaching points are as follows:

Monday: When life in unfair…God is good! Mack the rhinoceros shows us that God’s goodness is always around us, even in bad circumstances.

Tuesday: When life is scary…God is good! Hooper the Hoopoe (it’s a bird) reinforces that no matter what, God is still in control of our wild world.

Wednesday: When life changes…God is good! Kids are introduced to Marge the Cape buffalo who shows them that no matter what changes, one thing never changes, God is always God and God is always good!

Thursday: When life is sad…God is good! Zion the lion will help us understand the goodness of God through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

The planning process in underway! If you would like to be a part of VBS, let me know. You will be blessed and enjoy the week as much as the kids!
