Did you ever think at the beginning of 2020 that we would be asked to stay in our homes for an indefinite time? Since being quarantined, have you ever wondered out loud or in your head, “when will things be back to normal?” It got me thinking about how to incorporate these questions into our Vacation Bible School (VBS) time.
Our VBS theme for the summer is “Lock Down Faith.” We will explore bible stories that involve being ‘locked up’ including: Noah’s Ark, Jonah and the Whale, and the Empty Tomb, just to name a few. Noah, Jonah, and the people in these stories were changed by their experiences. How were they changed? How have we been changed by our time in our homes? Did their lives go back to ‘normal’? What does ‘normal’ look like for us living through a pandemic? Will we be changed?
VBS is scheduled via ZOOM on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-10:30 starting this Tuesday, June 16 through Thursday, August 6. This eight week forum is designed for children (ages 3 through 5th grade) but the whole family is welcome to join us.
Each week we will focus on a new story. On Tuesdays, the story and music will be shared. On Thursdays, we’ll do an activity – a craft, game or science project – that highlights our weekly story in a creative way.
It’s not too late to join us! Please go to lifeatctk.org and sign up.
