What better way to end an incredible week of Vacation Bible School than to celebrate with the whole church!  Our church took the opportunity this weekend to remember, celebrate and share the experiences of what God has done through VBS.

God Is Wild About You – VBS Day 5

A wild and exciting previous four days brings us to the fifth and final day of Vacation Bible School.  It has been an amazing, incredible, life-changing week – for the kids and for the teens and for the adults!

Day 5 Slide

Today is a bittersweet day.  The day represents the culmination of months of effort and anticipation.  It has been a great week and it has been a long week.  It has been an adrenaline rush.  Everyone is tired and yet energized.  There is some relief that we are drawing to a close; but, I would do it all again next week, and the week after, in a heartbeat!

 

Wild Bible Adventure Clues

We like to have fun – even when introducing the Bible Story.  Each day we had a clue that would give us a hint of what the Bible Story would be for the day.  The only problem read more

God Is Wild About You – VBS Day 4

The biggest event of the year, Vacation Bible School, changes lives!  Definitely, it is Day 4 of VBS!

The fourth day of VBS has been completely centered upon the message of Jesus and the relationship he wants to have with each one of us.  Was the day impactful?  Absolutely.

Talking To God Changes Things

We have definitely learned that prayer is a powerful tool that God has given us to use.  In fact, we have a phrase that we use often with the kids: Talking To God Changes Things.  This helps us to remember that prayer is simply a conversation with God and that it has the power to change what happens.

Impactful Worship

The worship all week has been incredible and today saw the impact become even greater…children worshipping, not because it is what everyone else is doing, but because they want to connect with the One True God! read more

God Is Wild About You – VBS Day 3

Hundreds of kids everywhere you look.  People dressed up in costumes telling stories from the Bible.  Leaders on stage doing silly things just to get the attention of kids.  And special guests conquering amazing feats.  It can only mean one thing… Day 3 of Vacation Bible School!!

Giant Panda Cookies

We had several friends bless us this morning with cookies of all types.  A definite God Sighting for us.  This picture shows a couple of those cookies – although, I think I would call them more of a work of art (not to be left as art…they sure were yummy)!

God Is Wild About You – VBS Day 2

Day 2 of our wild adventures in Vacation Bible School!!!  I love being a part of a bigger story than my own small story.  This week is definitely shaping up to be a God-sized story and I am excited and honored to be a part of it.

As I mentioned yesterday, we love to worship.  We use simple, yet meaningful, intentional and fun motions in our worship.  Here are some of our passionate worship leaders leading the way as we got started this morning.

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!

Of course, Vacation Bible School for our church is not your everyday VBS.  And this was definitely a day of leaving the ordinary behind. For starters, check out our tech crew:

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.

Child_Looking_With_Binoculars

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.
