VBS 2013

Our church did the Go Fish Gotta Move Vacation Bible School program last week.  Our kids LOVE Go Fish music, and I find myself singing along to our songs from the past few years of VBS.  This year’s music was no exception, and I’m hoping to scrounge up a few new Amazon MP3 credits soon so I can purchase this year’s CD!

I work the registration table each year, which leaves me with some free time each evening once all the registration duties are taken care of.  I ‘float’ and help as needed, but it’s nice to have a few breaks to peek in on my kiddos as they are learning and having fun!

This horse was used as a prop in a preschool Bible lesson.  Jensyn claimed it as her own!
(Ironically, the owner of the horse had outgrown it & offered it to Jensyn at the end of the week.)

We helped make a prayer blanket for a relative of several of our church members who just started chemo.  Each time a person ties a knot in the blanket, they say a prayer for the recipient.  Not only is the recipient covered in a warm blanket; they are also covered in the prayers of family and friends!  (Alex & Jensyn each tied a knot, though Jensyn obviously did not understand…)


Alex sits and thinks during music time…he does not like to sing or dance in front of other people.


Max, on the other hand, gets COMPLETELY into it!


The highlight of the week for me was when a friend walked up with her kids on Friday, sharing that one of her sons had decided to be baptized at the end of the day’s VBS program!  What a neat thing it was to see that God used our VBS program to reach out to Joshua!  What a blessing to witness his daddy come and baptize him!
