It’s VBS season (Vacation Bible School)! Teachers are using old-school projects like the macaroni necklaces (a personal favorite) as well as more modern; colored pasta, taping together newspaper to make capes, Oh how I miss those delightful summer days at church.
Young minds ready to soak up and learn about the love of Jesus. For me it was the first time being without my parents, and feeling unsure and shy. Now I’d give anything to go back to those days, not just the arts and crafts, but the teachers and friends I haven’t seen in 40+ years.
What are your memories of church camp or vacation bible school?
One day some mothers brought their babies to him to touch and bless. But the disciples told them to go away. Then Jesus called the children over to him and said to the disciples, “Let the little children come to me! Never send them away! For the Kingdom of God belongs to men who have hearts as trusting as these little children’s. And anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get within the Kingdom’s gates.”
