Vacation Bible EXPERIENCE

I know it may sound hokey but who wants to go to “School” during the summer? Mesquite Church of Christ this year has changed our big outreach event from “Vacation Bible School” to “Vacation Bible Experience.” We will be be misspelling the acronym, calling it VBX. Catchy isn’t it? Our theme this year is “At the Feet of Jesus” and the lessons will be based on the sermon on the mount. The whole experience will end with a Jerusalem Marketplace Festival where the children can spend the shekels they earned during the week. All the children and volunteers will be dressed in Bible times costumes. I am super excited about it and it is a real focal point of much of my workday. I am including some pictures of last year’s VBS (“Splash Down: Diving Deeper into God’s Word”)simply because it is fun to think back on the fun times.


This was our underwater fellowship hall with life size whale and giant squid.

Beautiful woman and child (Notice Miriam getting into the theme with the goldfish on her shirt).

Our children’s ministry deacon is an art teacher. he and his wife taught a class in a black light room.

Someone thought it would be an okay idea to let this guy direct VBS…

Some of the kids enjoying the underwater atmosphere! (Those older kids are trapped under the whale)
