The sanctuary was filled with a lot of excitement with over 120 children and 70+ volunteers throughout the week at this year’s Vacation Bible School. We discovered that when we get our strength from God, we too can be super heroes. We started the day in Opening Assembly singing songs and learning our hero codes for the day from Flame and Captain Sheep. The groups then rotated through recreation, snack/mission, crafts, science and story where they explored the hero code of the day and learned more about our Bible Story. Our hero codes stated that God’s heroes have heart, courage, wisdom, hope and power. We closed the day out with another rally where we checked in on what we learned and sang a few more songs. The children have been engaged, having fun and getting excited for Jesus!
A huge thank you to all who helped with Vacation Bible School this year. What an incredible week it has been and without the hard work of so many people, we couldn’t have pulled it off. A few of the special moments that VBS has created include:
- Bellevue First joining forces with us and the relationships and connections that have grown from it.
- Children came from our church, preschool and the community to Aldersgate and spent time with friends and made need ones too.
- Our youth were present and were able to get to know the kids, adult volunteers and each other better.
- God was with us and his presence was felt with each smile, dance move, hug, question and hero code shared.
- One of our VBS heroes came up to me today and said, “thank you for making this week so much fun. I really like your church. It just makes me feel good. “
Thank you Aldersgate VBS for being an environment where all of us grow in faith and discover (or rediscover) God’s amazing love with a very special community.
