Check out some memories from an awesome week of VBS 2016!

We were so blessed to have 133 children join us at Cave Quest, as we learned what it means to follow Jesus, the light of the world. A special thank you to all of the families that pr-registered their children by July 1. This gave our VBS staff extra time to ensure that we had enough student materials and snacks for our increased attendance.
We want to thank all of the many volunteers who helped us out in our VBS preparations and during the week of VBS. We had a total of 106 volunteers help during the week of VBS, either for part of the week or for the entire week. Additional volunteers helped us with decorations and preparation of supplies prior to VBS. We also want to thank the members of our congregation for all of the many donations of supplies and snacks that were provided for VBS. These donations allowed us to provide a quality program for our children and helped us teach God’s Word in a fun and engaging way.
Here is a short YouTube video of VBS highlights from the week.

I also want to thank you for supporting our VBS Mission Project.
We collected $610.37 last week for Eight Days of Hope.
This money will help families in the United States rebuild their homes following natural disasters.

 

 

 

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 it 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.
