VBS Storytime – Together As One
1 Corinthians 12:27 – You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it. (NIRV)
Join us VIRTUALLY for VBS Storytime August 3rd – 7th via the Children and Family Ministry Facebook Group. This year’s theme of “Together As One” reminds us that even though we cannot meet in person, we are still the church and will continue to grow and strengthen our faith during this “season of weirdness.”
How will VBS look this year?
Everything will be online and available at 10 a.m. Monday – Friday. Each day we will explore a different Bible story focused around our theme of “Together As One.” Our Director of Children and Family Ministries, Chessey Brenton, will start us out with a video Bible story. Then, you are encouraged to participate in the posted activities. We will have activities ranging from crafts, science, games, cooking, etc. that can all be done at home. Here are our daily scripture lessons:
- Monday, August 3rd – Jesus Walks on Water (Matthew 14:22-33)
- Tuesday, August 4th – The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)
- Wednesday, August 5th – The Prodigal Son (Luke 15: 1-3, 11-32)
- Thursday, August 6th – Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10)
- Friday, August 7th – Jesus Feeds the 5,000 (John 6:1-14)
