Shipwrecked...

    Rescued by Jesus

 

This year we ventured to an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. We were able to learn how Jesus Rescues when we are lonely, worried, struggling, do wrong, or are powerless. We sang songs which celebrated how Jesus is the one who rescues and saves us.

The week was filled with memories, exciting games and interesting experiments in Imagination Station. Each day, one of the groups put together a video which summarized the lesson.  Even the snacks and the games had a message.

Our children raised $955 for families in Haiti, which will be used to purchase drought-resistant seeds to help them grow their own food.

The children shared three of their songs from VBS with the congregation during the 10:30 service on August 5

VBS - Serving for the First Time at VBS

By Kathy Kozelek

I would like to share my experience as a first-time volunteer for VBS, helping out in the kitchen and making up the snack trays. Each day the snack trays were part of the VBS theme, which added fun snacks for the kids to enjoy. 

At the end of the day, we started prepping for the next day, laughing and sharing thoughts and ideas finishing up in time to enjoy the closing day with the kids in the sanctuary.

I want to thank everyone for this joyful experience!
