First Vacation Bible School (VBS) For Kids



First Vacation Bible School (VBS) For Kids

On July 11th, 2011, St. Matthew's Catholic Church in Ceres-CA was the VBS destination for 20 of our children. This was the first day of the very first VBS event. Throughout the week there were activities that kept students' focus on bringing the life story of Jesus Christ alive such as Bible studies, crafts, and games for 4 hours every day of the week.

Son Surf was the theme of our first VBS year. So as you might imagine the entire week was about fish and underwater. So it was really fitting the telling of the footprints in the sand story, and students participated by making their own footprint prayer card to keep in their homes. The students began each VBS day by coming to church, praying and sharing one story about Jesus' life, learning how to apply His teaching to our lives; to do what Jesus would expect us to.

For example, one day we spoke about why I could trust Jesus and the story we shared was of the Official's son that was healed by Jesus, (John 4:43-54). The children learned how to be a trustworthy person and why it is important to trust Jesus with our lives. They also learned the Bible Verse; "When I am afraid, I will trust in you" Psalm 56:3

St. Matthew Parish's youth members attended daily leading all the activities; prayer, crafts and games, they proved to be positive role models for the children who enjoyed seeing them, pray and share Bible stories with them, and play together. It was a surly a Blessed experience we thank God for, and ask Him to bless all those who helped and devoted their time to be with the children during our first VBS week. These are few photos from this event.
