Vacation Bible School 2007 – GameDay Central

GamedayOne of the highlights of the year at our church is the week of Vacation Bible School. Last year Rhonda, Trey and I taught a Kindergarten class and had a great time. This year, Trey helped with the snacks and I helped in the 4-5 grade music. What a blessing it was!!

The theme this year was heroes. In our music class, we tried to help the kids understand that all of these sports stars that we consider heroes may not be heroes at all. A true hero is one who obeys even when it’s not easy, does his best in all situations, believes in Jesus and follows God’s plan, put others first, and tells others about Jesus.

Group-Shot-2As for VBS, we broke records again this year. We had over 1,000 people participate in VBS. Every year, the kids bring change to donate (this year the proceeds are going to help us rebuild a house in New Orleans on a future mission trip). Over the week, the kids brought in 1,203 pounds of change. The girls ended up winning the annual contest (they always do, it seems) but the total was a record almost doubling what was given last year. Simply amazing!

Even better than that was that 29 kids gave their hearts to Jesus during the week, including our Noah. We are so proud and grateful that he listened and heard Jesus calling him. He will be baptized in a few weeks. So what a great week we had. Now, in a couple of weeks, I am off with Trey to youth camp in Red River, NM. That should be interesting.
