VBS 2017 Day 5

Today, we looked at John 14:26: “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” As we closed up our week of VBS, we were reminded that God loves and care for us, no matter what it is that we have done or will do. He gives us the Holy Spirit so that we may continue to have an intimate relationship with Him.

Thank you to all the parents and students for supporting our missionary families–the Oh’s and the Wong’s. We raised $551! As a result, we pied some of our leaders with whipped cream to celebrate. IMG_3441

VBS 2017 Day 4

Because the end of the week is nearing, the kids have become a lot more familiar with the choreography and lyrics of our opening song, Galactic Starveyors. After singing praise, the kids listened to Teacher Camellia use the movie Finding Dory as a metaphor for faith in Jesus Christ.

VBS 2017 Day 1

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything is created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things have been create through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:15-16.

Welcome to VBS 2017! This year, our campers are searching the visible and discovering the invisible to better understand the power of Jesus Christ.

Today was the first day of camp.

Campers began their day by listening to Teacher Camellia talk about today’s theme at VBS – The Relationship Begins. Today’s bible point was that the God who created everything wants a relationship with us. The verses of the day are Genesis 1:1-2,26-31 and John 1:1 and 14.

Theme: “Galactic Starveyors: Discovering the God of the Universe!”
Date:
 July 17-21, M-F
Time: Monday-Friday (9 AM- 12:15 PM)
Ages: 4 yrs old- 6th grade (as of September 1, 2017)

Dear Parents,

This year at VBS we are going to explore the universe that God created for us! He created everything we see and still it was missing something. Galactic Starveyor VBS is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Exploratory crafts, team-building games, cool songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life–something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at Closing Ceremony for each day at 11:50am!
