Vacation Bible School is one of the most fun and memorable events that our family enjoys together every year. Our kids always look forward to it and our girls have even joined Christy and I on the VBS serve team. At our house, a lot of stories begin with “Remember that year at VBS when…”
VBS is colorful, crazy, and just plain fun! That’s why kids love it. But it’s also full of the gospel and all about helping kids enjoy God for who He is, what He’s done, and what He’s promised. Everything in VBS points to the good news about a God who fiercely loves us—the Bible verses, the zany skits, even the messy competitions and fun games. VBS isn’t a little trickle of the gospel; it’s a blast of good theology!
The Calvary Kids staff would love to know that you’re praying with us before and during VBS week. Pray that kids will see how awesome Jesus is a little bit more this week. Pray that our volunteer leaders will make great memories and have great conversations with kids. Pray that God would be at work as we invite more families to find real hope because of the gospel! Thank you!
Galactic Starveyors registration ends tomorrow! VBS is a relevant and real way to share the gospel with our children. So, give them an opportunity to marvel at how BIG God is and how BIG his love is for us by registering them before 7.6! Then from July 10-12, your K-5th graders will be invited to share in Bible stories, action-packed songs, memory verses, cool crafts, games, and snacks between 5:45 and 8:30p each night! We hope you'll join us!
