2021's Vacation Bible School was back in the church!

What an exciting time for our church this year as our VBS program this year. We were able to have an in person VBS. A great team of VBS Volunteers from our church and even had the youth from Rigging Christian Church join us to help with the children. We had a Bible story, Bible Challenge, Snack and Craft projects, songs to learn, Bible verses to memorize, along with a short presentation each week for their Mission Project:  Shoes That Grow. We were able to raise enough money to buy 25 pairs of shoes for children who cannot afford to have shoes. We ended the week with a water slide and bbq in which we invited the children and their families to participate in.

We had a "very successful" VBS in 2020!

What an exciting time for our church this year as our VBS program nearly doubled in size from last year using a format entirely new to everyone involved -- about forty families, 79 kids were involved and touched by the hand of God.  A great team of VBS Volunteers put together weekly packets for each of five weeks that included all of the materials needed to go with the "lessons" that were taught through videos created for each week.  The videos included a Bible story, Bible Challenge, Snack and Craft projects, songs to learn, Bible verses to memorize, along with a short presentation each week for their Mission Project:  Shoes That Grow.  The Bible stories were produced by Concordia and were included each week kin the video with an introduction and follow-up by a member of the team.  A lot of new "stars" were born during the creation of the various segments for the videos:

Debbie Kraft - Story Telling

Rina Hallock - Story Telling / Mission:  Shoes That Grow

Barb Moody - Story Telling / Activity Pages

Dave Moody - "The Plan of Salvation"

Sylvia Marmon - Snacks

Candis Hoover - Crafts

There were a lot of other people involved "behind-the-scenes," as well.  It takes a lot of dedicated folks to put together a program like this -- there is probably more work involved that there is putting together a one-week in-person program.  It wouldn't have happened had we not had such a great team working together on it!
