  • For a lot of kids Vacation Bible School at area churches is as much a part of their summer schedules as are sports, favorite swimming holes, and homemade ice cream.

    The VBS sessions usually center on a single theme involving kids in games and crafts, and—most importantly—seeking to teach biblical truths.

    Though most classes continue several successive days or nights, the length varies as do the times school is in session. Following are examples of what some local churches are doing.

    If we were to take a moment and evaluate our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, would our faith marvel Jesus or would Jesus say, “Oh you of little faith?” The Bible gives us examples of both these extremes. Peter was identified at one moment as having a faith that was small. In contrast, we read in Matthew 8:5-13 of a Gentile, centurion soldier who is identified by a faith that marvels Jesus. So does your faith marvel Jesus?
