VBS 2019: To Mars and Beyond: Explore Where God's Power Can Take You!
2019 Vacation Bible School was held July 8-12. Our theme was “To Mars and Beyond – Explore Where God’s Power Can Take You”. We learned to Go Beyond with Faith, Boldness, Kindness, Thankfulness and Hope. Ninety children learned about Daniel and the Lion’s Den, Queen Esther saving her people, the Good Samaritan, Jesus Healing 10 men, and the Road to Emmaus. Each day started with an opening where we learned new songs and heard about the day’s story and theme with help from the EP-3:20 puppet. We also saw videos about our mission to collect fuel to save the starship Galaxion. After that it was off to visit 6 stations – music, games, story, crafts, science, and snack. As part of the snack rotation the children worked on mission projects including packing 105 lunches for the Lighthouse Shelter, making 90 cat and dog toys for the SPCA, 100 placemats for Meals on Wheels and worry stones to send to Pastor Dave to give to the troops. Our day ended with a closing program. Our last day included a closing ceremony where we shared some of the songs we learned with our parents, and reviewed the stories we heard. Then we celebrated with a wonderful picnic lunch for everybody. The credit for the success of this year’s VBS goes to the exceptional volunteers. Everyone stepped up and did a fantastic job and I think we all had a good time sharing God’s love with the children."
