Vacation Bible School is for all ages!

One of the great things about Vacation Bible School (VBS) is that it lets people of all ages work together in a fun, exciting, loving environment.  For this year’s Workshop of Wonders we had folks from newborns to over 80 years old — this year there were 20 people in the 70 to 80 year-old age bracket!  VBS classes are for kids going into Kindergarten through 6th grade, but Middle School and High School kids get to be Youth Assistants.  They help the adult leaders and mentor the kids in their group. The result is a wonderful intergenerational experience where stories of Jesus’ love are shared.  Because VBS is sponsored by four churches in town, people from a variety of denominations get to work together, too.

An important part of VBS is Mission Outreach, and this year that meant supporting five different groups: 

 Monday  (Story of Esther…“Imagine with God!” ) Mission Outreach to BUILD helping RELATIONSHIPS: collect diapers/wipes/money for Children in Need in our community ie: Family Promise, Love Inc, etc)
