God has blessed St. Mark's and the community's children for many years through their summer Vacation Bible School program.
Briefly, VBS is a Christian program to teach the word of God to children from Pre-School through 6th grade, with 7th and 8th graders serving as helpers. The program is presented through Bible study, crafts, singing and playing.
This year, the VBS theme, Mystery Mansion: Unlocking Gods Truth used the theme Bible verse from John 14:6, "Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life.'"
This lively 5-day Bible adventure led kids from one puzzling mystery to the next as they learned that they are God's heirs. Mystery Mansion unlocked God's truth with:
- Five New Testament stories that explore what it means to be God's heirs
- Five fun Bible clues that solve lesson mysteries
- Can't-find-'em-anywhere-else crafts that reinforce Bible lessons
- Easy-to-learn music that keeps kids tuned into God's love for them
|Each day the children shared in Bible stories, skits and songs. To see highlights of these events.|
|In addition, the kids enjoyed daily crafts and play time, with plenty of snacks also included. For craft and play highlights.|
|After a week of studies and fun, the children were joined by their families for a BBQ and play on Friday night! Friday highlights!|
|With the week's events being completed, the children have one more opportunity to share their adventures by leading St. Mark's Sunday worship. Sunday Worship highlights.|
|Finally, what would this year's VBS be without a few shots of those that will join the fun in a few years, but were just a bit too young for this years events. Future VBSers!|
