There is tired and there is VBS tired.
What’s the difference? Well, VBS tired goes beyond normal tired at so many levels; yet, God keeps filling you back up.
This week about an average of 70 children participated in each day of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church’s Vacation Bible School in Burn Flat, Oklahoma. This was SonTreasure Island VBS.
It just now concluded, sort of, that is.
How does a small church manage 70 children? With 30 helpers. Several years ago, the church went to an evening format for VBS and suddenly many more people—to include the junior/senior youth—came to volunteer.
This year’s VBS was all about love and centered around the 13th Chapter of Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth. The was complemented by Bible stories, crafts, snacks, and recreation.
Everyone had a blast and everyone learned about love.
This evening marked the final VBS session for this year, but VBS isn’t quite over yet.
There is a pool party tomorrow, Saturday the 12th of July 2014, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the City Pool. This is for everyone involved with VBS and their families.
Families are also request to come to the 11:00 a.m. service this Sunday to hear the children sing the new songs that they learned and to view a VBS video. All of this is during the traditional worship service at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at 205 State Highway 44 in Burns Flat.
Come get wet this Saturday and come ashore this Sunday for worship and our VBS Showcase.
