Amongst other things, VBS means Very Busy Saints, and our VBS was such a huge success because of the hard work and great effort of so many. Children and adults have all had good things to say and everybody had a really wonderful time. The ice cream part was another great success and I don’t remember a time when we had so many cookies and so much ice cream left over. Thank you for your hard work and great effort. This was a truly great V.B.S.; we praise God for all the blessings. We had 101 children in attendance!!! WOW!!!==========================================================
We did do some advertising besides lots of posts shared on Facebook.
Flyers went out to anyone who would let us put them in their store windows. The door hangers were well circulated as well.
Beautiful decorations and beautiful people were in abundance. It was nice to be a part of it all. Here I will share some of the pictures in collages, because I took so many.
The fellowship hall looked so good with all the streamers and banners on the walls with the fruit of the spirit theme. Classroom reflected the theme of Fruit of the Spirit with their decorations. Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness & Self Control.
We all sang songs, listened to a skit about patience. The kids went to class before partaking in a good lunch and fun booths to keep them entertained. It was great!
My DH and I took pictures of kids and printed them so they could take them home.
One very popular booth was the stick horse booth. Little kids (and one BIG kid) lined up to ride the stick horses around the booth with music playing.
Everyone enjoyed the popcorn booth, the country store and the face painting booth.
We were privileged to have a presentation from the Fire Department from Briar, Texas. The children also got to see the fire truck and climb inside.
We had a "Stump the Wise Men" booth as well so kids could ask questions. Children earned tickets from various sources and used them to pay for booth rides and items.
This picture shows the BIG kid riding the stick horse. Looks to me like the little cowgirl was showing him the correct way to ride. Ride 'em cowboy, Monte!!
Our preacher was enjoying a snow cone and an elder was all decked out in costume for his booth. The ladies in the kitchen did a wonderful job getting everyone fed!
Booths included: Snow Cone, Popcorn, Cotton Candy, Jump House, Ring Toss, Bean Bag Toss, Duck Pond, Balloon Dart Game, Spin-A-Prize, Milk Carton Toss Game, Putting, Races-Potato Sack, Tug-O-War, etc.
Lots of good fellowship visiting went on as well.
I think everyone had a great time.
The kids left with bags of goodies prepared for them, the pictures we took and will receive attendance certificates for their participation.
