We had our first night of VBS last night, and I thought things really went smoothly. We’re doing quite a different VBS this year — using Group Publishing’s Galilee-by-the Sea curriculum.
The idea is that the kids go back in time to experience the crafts, foods, and stories of the Bible. Because it’s so different, there was a lot of work on the front end — the weeks leading up to the opening, and yesterday as we created shops and hung atmospheric scenery (recycled from previous children’s musicals!) But the work paid off last night, as volunteers commented, “This is so different than usual — it feels more relaxing to spend time in the marketplace, choosing your own activity.” Addendum (June 14): We had a great week of VBS! All pictures are now posted up on this post. To read the rest of the post and view our pictures, click here. We sang songs in our sanctuary at the beginning of VBS.
