Adventures at Vacation Bible School!

By July 20, 2012September 7th, 2013No Comments

We positively love the summertime here in DP land! One of the reasons why we love summer is because it gives us a chance to enjoy lots of fun ministry opportunities. Our heart is to serve through our work, and when we can combine our work skills WITH our church’s outreach ministries, we are thrilled!

One of our favorite things to do in the summer is to help organize Vacation Bible School. It gives us a great opportunity to not only share the Gospel with precious little ones, but also help mentor and work with the young people of our church.

This year’s theme was based on the Voice of the Martyrs Kids of Courage curriculum. The kids at VBS “traveled” to five lands throughout the week including Eritrea (pictured), the USA, Sri Lanka, Colombia, and Chiapas.

The kids learned songs, memory verses, and learned first-hand the story of a persecuted lady from Bulgaria.

We had special prizes at the end of the week for the kids who memorized the most memory verses and brought the most guests.

The kids collected money in a Penny March to raise funds to buy Bibles in Bulgaria. We were QUITE shocked when the scale tipped evenly for boys and girls!

In addition to designing the VBS t-shirt, Melanie came up with the great idea of having a VBS bulletin board. By the end of the week, we had lots of inspiring verses & quotes, funny stories, prayer requests, and encouraging notes to share.
