God Is Wild About You – VBS Day 1

Today was the first day of the biggest event of the year! At least the biggest event of the year for our Children’s Ministry. Today we began the amazing adventure known as Vacation Bible School!

As you might have guessed, our theme this year has something to do with pandas.  Specifically, our theme is PandaMania…Where God Is Wild About You!  And, today was an incredible kick-off for a wild week.  Here are a few must-see highlights from the day (more to come over the next few days). read more


Why We Cannot Wait For Summer

Everyone I know looks forward to summer vacation. A chance to leave the ordinary behind and experience an adventure that will be talked about for years to come. For me and my family, and a thousand of our closest friends, the next week will bring one of those adventures.


At my church, we love Vacation Bible School! It is the biggest event of the year. It brings a ton of excitement to the people of the church and the community; and, it infuses energy into our Children’s Ministry that we feed off of the rest of the year.

Over the next few days, I will share with you some of the adventures that we experience, the lessons we learn and a little of what it takes to make the biggest event of the year happen.

Keep checking back all week for new posts and updates. In case you miss any, check back to this page for links to each post.
