Did you know that Vacation Bible School can be successful with only a month’s planning time? It’s not recommended, but it’s totally possible, especially if the director has an excellent team of volunteers who step up to make VBS an exciting, fun-filled, faith-filled adventure.
With the theme “Food Truck Party: On a Roll with God,” the children and staff were awed by decorated mini-food trucks, miles of flags and a bazillion balloons festooning the hallways, and craft, science, Bible storytime, and recreation sessions all built around the daily specials: “God is great! God is good! Let us thank God for our food. By His hand we all are fed, Give us, Lord, our daily bread!” Top Chefs Jacques and Marcus (Pastors Chuck Neugebauer and Mark Goble) taught us that as God provides for us, we are to provide for others, and with that in mind, the VBS participants brought in canned goods to share with the Mid-South Food Bank.
VBS Week ended with enthusiastic, energetic music from all the kids, and a visit from Mempops mobile food truck. We pray that the week made a lasting impression on our children, knowing that God provides for us as He loves us dearly.
