Vacation Bible School Activities
Vacation Bible School is typically a jam-packed three hours every day for a week, and this year was no exception. The children gathered in their crews each morning in the gym for a singing/dancing session followed by games, craft projects (a "find it" bottle filled with colored rice, a stuffed bear, and a wind-up robot), coloring their Bible Buddies, snack time, living Bible stories, movies, and a fun finale with more singing and dancing. Although it was a warm week weatherwise, the children also gathered outside one morning to blow bubble prayers to heaven. On Wednesday, a huge inflatable obstacle course was installed in the gym--and, needless to say, a good time was had by all as they navigated through the course. Vacation Bible School culminated on Friday with a wonderful show featuring a magician and his assistant, doves, and even a duck! Many children were also called upon to be assistants--and they were magical!
