Surviving VBS & Enjoying the Experience

We survived vacation Bible school. It was enjoyable too. Over 200 children attended, with a high of 257 on the last night.

It was really fun to have an opportunity to interact with the kids in the classes. Each child had a name tag which enabled us to greet and interact with each one by name. I really enjoyed the "high fives". I'm glad I participated and was able to help.

Each night the various classes would come together for the closing assembly. In those assemblies there was plenty of loud cheering and enthusiastic singing. It was a fun and enjoyable time. But even more, it was a fun and enjoyable time with a clear focus on God and His Word. Seed was sown, and in His time, God will give the increase.

In a previous post, I talked about the relationship of children to the local church. This week's experience was an opportunity to see those principles in action.
