Why do we spend so much time decorating, the effort of many volunteers, and the expense for one RAD TO THE MAX week each summer? Could these resources be used better elsewhere? No way, DUDE! “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” 3 John 1:4. LIKE, TOTALLY!
At the heart of VBS is the gospel message within every TOTALLY TUBULAR activity: bible teaching, worship rally, crafts, recreation, shepherding children to activities, and snacks.
VBS at Eastmont will look slightly different this year with evening hours, a hospitality room for community guests, and many new volunteer faces. We will start with an optional dinner for families from 5:00 – 5:45 pm in the fellowship hall. Kids will then go to the Worship Center at 6:00 pm for a worship rally before rotating through activities, concluding back in the Worship Center at 8:15 pm. What will not change is our goal to lead children in our church and community to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ, using creative and memorable ways. How BODACIOUS is it that God chooses to use us to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ with our next generation?
Our “trip down memory lane” theme will be built around old favorites:
Hungry, Hungry Hippos – God’s Church is a community that shares.
Transformers –God can take a heap of junk and turn us into a “power-filled” New Creation
Paperboy Delivers – Sharing THE GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ with everyone.
Reach out and touch someone. Invite them to a GNARLY fun time at BOLT Totally 80s VBS!
