VBS will be from June 17-21
Gotta Move With VBS - Awesome #Music And Praise With Kids - Day 1 is going on at our church all this week and it's something fierce!
This was my first day of having my own class of kids. They are ages five and six. I have quite a few volunteers and we are all working very well. My volunteers are teens and seem rather calm. I keep wondering if they are bored out of their minds! :) They seem genuinely interested and caring and I feel their spirits as calm.
Our lesson was about Noah.
Craft: Fun Ark which the kids got to load with animals. I even did the water rain, even though we were told it was best not to do that since there might be a mess because of the little kids. But indeed it was fun. The kids enjoyed it.
Day 1: His Grace, Our Obedience (Genesis 6-7)
God created us to be near to Him. Children will see the difference in how God made man compared to every other living thing in creation. They will also look at the story of Noah in a new way and see how he walked with God even though no one else in his generation did. Children will learn that we are only able to be close to God through His grace and the favor He gives us. Our response should be to walk in obedience.
Two of my kids gave me wild flowers today. How precious.
Day Two begins tomorrow! Whoooo!
I'm cheering for team Green and orange
My daughter is in team Green and my son is in Team Orange.
I think all the kids are placed in age appropriate groups. I think there were six teams!
Purple, Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange and Green!
The music is awesome! Go Fish Guys simply rock praise and worship!
The team members worked great! And I felt like I was part of something wonderful.
It's funny that for the past two years I have volunteered in VBS and has gotten better to being in the lead of my team, where as when I first started I was so awkward and shy!
This time, I prayed for my team and our hearts before each day.
And I did volunteer for the past two years so that my daughter could enjoy being part of the program because she wasn't yet attending school.
Now that she is in Kindergarten (will be going into first grade), I figured I'd just sign them up and be that parent that come pick them up at the end of the program and get regaled with all the awesomeness that went on.
God had other plans :)
The Children's Ministry Leader called to ask if I could volunteer this year also. So much for my easy escape.
But I'm so glad I accepted. It was a blessing for me.
And this year it's going to be way better!!
