Vacation Bible School for youth coming soon

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

 Vacation Bible School 2013 will take place at Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church from July 22 through July 26 for kids from K-12 years. Following those five days there will be a special Sunday July 28 worship service featuring the children who will sing, offer Bible verses, and share their experiences. The church is located at the corner of Oracle & Mountainaire Road, a bit further south than Basha’s.

This is an opportunity not only for children but for adults who wish to volunteer time and talents with area youngsters in a Christian setting.

The theme for the program is “Clean Water for All God’s Children”, and will use a Presbyterian Church USA curriculum. Kids will learn about other children who don’t have clean water, and will participate in projects that can result in support for a specific mission project. There will be craft and science projects, readings from the Bible pertaining to water, music, recreation and snacks.

Wish to help or register your own youngster? Cassie Fraley has many opportunities for at-home preparations to hands-on with the kids. A photographer is needed, someone who will dispense bandaids and TLC is important, anyone who can sing (on- or off-key) is important to these children, and simply researching mission opportunities for youngsters is appreciated.

During the day, VBS needs “shepherds” who see that youngsters get from program to program, a “gopher” is a special person who can find a necessary item at a nearby store. There will be a pre-K program that needs adult support, and a person who can lead the reflections at the end of the day is welcome. Teens can also get involved by being assistants in various areas.

The overall goal is to let the children learn about God’s love for them through Bible stories about people and water, the needs of clean water, to understand that the church is a safe place, to make new friends, and share the love of God with family.

Remember, kids like having a good time, like learning new things, and are not particularly judgmental about off-key singing or coloring outside of the lines. Join the fun!

Contact Cassie for more information at cassi.fraley@gmail.com or call 889-1223. You may also call the church directly at 825-7858.
