Just like last summer, we packed tons of opportunities in for the Countryside kiddos to learn about Jesus through Vacation Bible School and the like. They attended Crestview Baptist’s Everest VBS, Temple, Sherwood, & Immanuel Baptists’s Journey Off the Map, Victory Sports Outreach Camp, and The Way VBS at The Connection.
Each week was full of Bible lessons, good music, crafts, energy, sweat, and connections. We appreciate these churches for letting our kiddos participate because it exposes them to what a church atmosphere is like. It teaches them to be quiet at the appropriate times and to be reverent at the appropriate times. It teaches that you can have fun in church and can learn lots of new things.
And we also appreciate when leaders and teachers pour into our kiddos’ lives so much that we are able to see things like this happen.
At our church in NC I was a VBS director for a few years and I know how much hard work is poured into making sure every detail is addressed. It is so rewarding to see salvation come from the efforts that were placed to make sure God’s name was lifted high and His Word was taught each night.
These outreach events certainly had an impact on the kiddos in Countryside and we are excited to watch the seeds grow.
