VBS: Powerful Learning
The sanctuary sits empty on Monday morning, but elaborately decorated with the VBS theme to welcome us beginning Monday evening at 5:30 with a meal. Experts claim one week of VBS is equivalent to a year of Sunday school in terms of learning, but of course life is all about relationships and not merely about learning Bible stories. We are expecting 40-50 children and youth to attend during the week, and at least that number of adults to help in some way. Summer Camp has an even greater impact and is often cited by our clergy and laity as an experience that changed their lives.
