My Confident Hope

Vacation Bible School

Last week I had my first experience with Vacation Bible School. The church I went to growing up didn’t do VBS they did a Kid’s Crusade. We had a blast! It was alot of work and we were exhausted at the end of it all but it was worth it! We averaged about 70 kids every night and there were 110 different kids that came at least one night. This is great considering we are not a large church. It was exciting to see the the kids getting excited about God. They got to see adults being crazy and having fun and then being serious when we needed to be about salvation and living for God. We showed them that being a Christian doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. I think some of us had more fun than the kids did! It was exciting to see new Christians in our church getting involved and being apart of these kid’s lives. On Sunday night we did a finale and we had a good number of parents and grandparents that came with their kids who do not go to our church. This was a great evangelism tool. I am so blessed to be able to be apart of something like this. We may never know the impact that this may have had on children and if only one child was brought into the Kingdom of God then all that was worth it! We laughed, we cried, we danced, we worshiped, we prayed and we gave all the glory to God for the work that He did through us!
