Vacation Bible School 2011 was a wonderful time of learning about the Fruit of the Spirit. The fruits we studied this week were love, joy, peace and patience. The children learned Galatians 5:22-23.
We had 120 children attend from Grace Lutheran Church and the Camp RCLS program. VBS was held at RCLS. We had over 40 volunteers and had a great week with the theme ‘County Fair’. All the kids got blue ribbons for having fun and learning God’s word with music, skits, games, crafts, snacks, and bible stories.
Thank you to all who volunteered and who donated items or money towards the VBS program.
The kids had a goal to collect 400 items for Channel One (between food items and dollars) and they exceeded it with 410 items! This is really great as Channel One is such an important mission project. When the food was delivered to Channel One it was weighed and VBS donated a total of 240 pounds of food and $175.14. Thanks to all the kids who donated towards this important mission!!
Thanks everyone! It was a great Vacation Bible School!
Opening with Pastor Heidorn teaching the kids about the Fruit of the Spirit.
Crafts were a lot of fun. We did many projects including a wood bookshelf, potted flower, hand prints, animal magnets and more.
The decorations were great! We were at a “County Fair”, here are the cool cows that were part of the decorations.
Games were a lot of fun! We played most of them outside and included some water games as well as used memory verses in the games to help us remember the Fruit of the Spirit.
Bible Study was held with age groups and we learned how to take an apple and twist the stem and say the Fruit of the Spirit while we did it. Each day was a different bible story to help teach us about the fruits that we have from the Spirit.
Music was amazing! We learned new songs and also learned how to line dance. Cool!
We learned how to milk a cow and also make butter from cream!
The skits were great!
Closing program was held each day at the end and we sang the songs from VBS program and learned about the mission project “Channel One”.
