Just a little background information and...
...a little guidance for this first at-home Vacation Bible School for pre-school through 6th grade children. During this past March we were planning our popular VBS program, and then the COVID pandemic arrived. We knew things would be different. Pastor and those helping with the VBS program believed that we could present a simple, fun and educational VBS program for the children.
In light of the past months historic pandemic and our future pandemic concerns the theme of the program is "Jesus and Me!: It is designed to bring the love from our Father to children and their families. In 1 Peter 5:7, we are told about casting all your anxieties to him, because He cares for you. We hope this program brings the love of our Lord to you and your family at this time.
FREE AT-HOME VBS PACKETS HAVE BEEN PREPARED AND ARE NOW AVAILABLE AT CHURCH JUST INSIDE THE BADLWIN AVENUE ENTRANCE (the west entrance by the park bench). Simply pick up a packet for your child.
Each day we have given a way to have Jesus in your child's daily life. If you continue a family tradition of praying together or begin a new tradition of including your child in daily prayer time, your child will know Jesus!
We have included just a little media technology for music and hope that your family will continue to use YouTube and other Christian media with your children.
The Bible verses are simple. They tell children of the love Jesus has for them and all of us. The crafts relate to the verse. You will just need to have tape or glue at home. We have a page with daily prayers for your family, and a page of daily activities for your child.
We know you are busy and it is summer, so the program is short and sweet - just enough to fill up about an hour. We thought a snack would be fun, too!
Have fun! God loves you! He has the whole world in His hands!
