    VBS 2016 Recap

    What a fantastic week we had at Vacation Bible School! As we studied the life and ministry of Paul, we reminded our children that their lives can be transformed by Jesus...just as Paul's life was!

    Here are some exciting stats from the week of VBS:

    • 350...number of kiddos in attendance
    • 250...number of volunteers who served
    • $2,000...amount raised to help provide water to our friends in Nicaragua
    • 5...number of children who made Jesus the BOSS of their lives
    • 1,250...number of pairs of shoes collected for our friends at Mission Hope for Kids

    The entire SVKids Team would like to give a great big hug, high-five and say "YOU ARE AWESOME!" to every single person who served before, during and after VBS week. We can't possibly pull of such an exciting, life-changing week without you!

  • Say "YES" to VBS

    This summer help us take our kids on a journey to learn how to . . .

    • Listen to God
    • Talk to God
    • And even share their faith 

    We will hit the road with Paul and ask the same questions he asked while making some incredible discoveries along the way. Grab your gear, check your GPS and get ready to Walk This Way!

    Our Theme Verse is: "When you walk, nothing will slow you down. When you run, you won’t trip and fall. Hold on to my teaching and don’t let it go. Guard it well because it is your life." Proverbs 4:12-13

    Each summer we depend heavily on our amazing volunteers to help create an atmosphere of fun, learning, excitement, and memory-making moments for each of our children who attend VBS.

    Please say "YES!" to making an impact on our next generation as we share Jesus with our community through this week-long, evening event!

  • Vacation Bible School - Recap

     

    Something pretty incredible happens when people meet up with Jesus and then MOVE!

    Last week 326 children did exactly that...they moved! As we heard about Jesus and people who encountered Him, we had a blast learning how to move with the gospel through worship, teaching, recreation, snacks, and so much more.

    Vacation Bible School is always an incredible week as we open our doors to the children in our community. This week would not happen if we did not have such amazing servants volunteering. Thank you to all of you who said "yes" to serving last week. 

    As the gospel was presented to our children last week, we saw 8 children come to know Christ and 11 more who want to talk further about salvation. 

    As part of our mission efforts the children put together bags of supplies for foster children. These bags (which hold toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, toys, underwear, socks, and more) will be given to children as they enter a new foster home. The offering that was collected will be used to continue our building efforts in Nicaragua. 

    The SVKids team would like to again say "thank you" for praying for VBS, donating supplies, and volunteering as we continue to Love God, Love People, and Make Disciples.
