Almost 30 current and former VBS students and their families came to church on Sunday July 25 to enjoy a few hours of VBS activities together. This was the second in-person church event since the beginning of COVID, so it was especially joyful. Everyone participated in the familiar VBS activities of singing and games. First, there was a light picnic supper before a time of singing familiar VBS songs. Next, the group split into three teams to focus on solving many Wheel of Fortune-style challenges with lots of twists. Then, it was out to the obstacle course. One member from each team was blindfolded while teammates coached from the sidelines to get from beginning to end of the course. This was a visual lesson about trusting God. Finally, it was time for more singing followed by cake and ice cream.
The theme of the event was “Pray throughout the day to help you know God’s way”. The Bible lesson was delivered in clear terms: that God loves each one of us and delights in hearing our prayers.
Thanks to Christine Momjian and Yvonne Fereshetian whose impetus and thoughtfulness provided everyone with exciting and fun experiences. Other helpers included Bruce Momjian (flawless tech), Paul Fereshetian (great game ideas), Luke Momjian (game meister), Catherine Momjian (song leader), Kathy Chaney and Jeannette Keshishian (kitchen).
We have been blessed by the privilege of serving your children during VBS over the years.
