Vacation Bible School is held each summer, usually in late July or early August. Kids come each morning for a week to learn about God, sing songs, make art projects, and have snacks. VBS is completely free, and all children ages 4 thru 5th grade are welcome to attend, whether or not they are CUMC members. Many teens and adults volunteer their time to help the week go smoothly.
Vacation Bible School 2023 was a hero experience this year!! The weather was amazing, and the kids were very energetic! The Vector Verse was from Romans 14:19 “So let's strive for the things that bring peace and the things that build each other up.” The theme was “Hero Hotline” where we learned that we are called together to serve God! The heroes learned that they are called to ”Follow Jesus", "help others", "work together", "listen to God", and "show grace".
We learned many stories from the Bible: Jesus builds the team, Shiphrah, Puah and Miriam are God’s Wonder Women, Jethro Mentors Moses, the Magnificent Magi, Unexpected Heroes give Paul a Basket Ride. The children also had Pretzel Power Lifts, Campfire Trail mix, Cones of Power for snacks and created crafts to go along with the stories they learned that day. Recreation was held outside where the hero's were able to run around and play games relating to being a hero. Lastly, the children went to the science station where they made their own about magnetic attraction, liquid light, and sinking soda! Sadie I are so grateful that VBS was a success again this year and hope it continues to succeed in the years coming!
With love, Danica Diedrich
