VBS – Serving at ‘Cave Quest
By Bill Schneider
My primary reason to work at vacation Bible Study this year was initially selfish, as I was anxious to work alongside my 15-year-old granddaughter, Jessica. Jessica has been working with our VBS program for the last three years even though she is not a member of SOTH. In spite of my selfishness, God blessed our little group of 3 very rambunctious boys and 4 cute little girls! It was fun to see how the kids responded to the lessons and activities. My brain was forced to search its memory banks as to how to relate to and motivate 5 and 6 year-olds and keep some semblance of order in the group. I was so grateful for Jessica’s insight and skill in this area. Snack time reminded me how to encourage some children to “just try something new” and the satisfaction of seeing a smile cross their faces as they realize they actually like it. The music had me waving my hands in the air and wiggling just as much as the kids as we praised and thanked Jesus for all He does for us.

During the week of VBS, the kitchen of SOTH is a bustling, noisy, fun, and sometimes messy place to be! Each VBS program comes with snacks planned to reinforce the major themes of the program. The creators of these programs have creative ways to make food more than just tasty snacks; it becomes an integral part of the program. Every child gets one day during the week to do a hands on part of the food service, providing one more imaginative way to be nourished by the lessons. Those of us in the kitchen had the fun challenge of trying to serve up to 182 people efficiently and joyfully each day! sometimes we set up the craziest type of assembly lines you will ever see. Of course, there will always be those young people who are very particular eaters, but more often than not, we saw those who were excited to try something new if it is in the shape of a compass or a sunshine or if it has a different name. The lack of leftovers was a great testimony to how much snack time is needed and appreciated. Kids always see things in a different way, and that’s why I love serving in the kitchen during VBS.
