The theme for Preschool VBS this year was Surf Shack: Catch the Wave of God’s Amazing Love. The focus for the week was how we can rely on God’s love to support us. In our Bible story from Genesis, we learned that God created our wonderful world and as one of our Preschoolers told his mom, “God created all of these wonderful things, but the best thing God created was ME!” Our story about Miriam and Moses taught us that God wants us to show his love by helping others. The Baptism of Jesus taught that God loves us, and our lesson when Jesus calmed the storm showed that God can help calm the storms in our lives. We opened each day with a chapel service. We collected an offering through the week which will go to Heifer International; the children were excited to be able to purchase a sheep and chicks which will go to needy families across our world. Activities, crafts and snacks reinforced each lesson. This past Sunday morning another Preschooler enthusiastically shouted to me, “VBS was Great… I loved it!!” Our Preschoolers love being at church and learning the lessons of the Bible. I am grateful to the many people who helped make this week a success!!
