“Surprise! Stories of Discovering Jesus”
VBS is coming June 13-17
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Jesus surprised the people he met!
With each surprise, people discovered more about Jesus.
Surprise! Stories of Discovering Jesus allows children to be surprised as they discover Jesus, too! Each of the five stories in this Bible-based vacation Bible school kit tells about someone surprised by Jesus. Surprise! invites children from preschool to grade 5 to come along on the journey, to open their eyes, and to see what Jesus has in store!
The stories come from the Gospels and tell of Jesus surprising leaders in the temple with his wisdom as a child, Jesus’ blessing children much to the surprise of the authorities, Jesus feeding a large crowd with only five loaves and two fish, Nicodemus seeking Jesus’ wisdom at night, and two travelers on the road surprised by Jesus after his death. With each surprise, children will discover more about Jesus.
Children in grades K–5 will see Bible stories come to life in the dramas during worship time, and will reflect on them during three response times: Bible Response, Active Response, and Creative Response.
We are excited to be offering VBS in person again June 13-17, starting at 9:00 am to 12:00 PM.
As always, it takes volunteers to make VBS happen. Middle school and high school students are welcome as group leaders / helpers (note, this is a great service project opportunity, especially for those who will be receiving the sacrament of confirmation this year). Adults will be needed to run the various centers. Please contact Vivian Thomas at [email protected] if you’re available to help for all or some of the time.
Registration forms may be found in the vestibule this weekend, or may be completed online via Google forms at: https://forms.gle/6ue47z3GEaRrgNHt9
