At the Hop
Vacation Bible School is in full swing at our church & its been the most fun I've had in a long time! I, along with my buddy Erica, are the crew leaders for the 5th grade class. These kids are fantastic! They want to put off the attitude that they're too old for this stuff, but I think are group is having the most fun! I know I am - & (ahem) I'm a little older than they are. Age hasn't & will never stop me from having fun!!!!!
And its so cool - there are tons of youth that are helping out all over VBS! From working in the games, to doing skits in lessons, to helping serve food, to helping the crew leaders & working one on one with the kids - these youth kids are stepping up! It just makes me so proud! And these kids are such good examples to these smaller kids - I love it!
The most important part of VBS is teaching these kids about God - & they are learning! From getting Bible points each night, to learning Bible verses & seeing some great lessons throughout the night - I think the kids are really learning. This year, we're discussing the story of Moses & also watching parts of "Prince of Egypt" - it blows me away that alot of kids have never seen it - but I forget - most of them weren't even alive when it came out. I can remember watching it at the theater & being so excited about it. But the kids get to really experience it - its just too much fun! I'm praying that each one of the kids take something away from this week! Something that they hold onto for the rest of their lives!
And I had to attach a video from last night - the game that is most loved with our kids - TRASH BASH! Yes - these are kids in garbage cans running into each other - who says fun has to be expensive & "gadgety"?
