VBS Going Strong!

We are having an exciting week of Vacation Bible School Camp here at First Baptist Church SSI! We thank all of you for the variety of ways that you have helped (prayer, donating, volunteering) make this an unforgettable experience for children in our church and community.

Our program’s theme is “Kingdom Rock: Where Kids Stand Strong for God.” This theme is incorporated in innovative ways within each rotation: Worship, Bible Study, Crafts, Music, Missions, Snacks and Recreation. Our VBS camp leaders are incredible. They are all volunteers that share a passion for young people and a desire to help them learn about the love that Christ has for each of them. Many have taken off work and used vacation days to make this possible. Thank you!!!

This year our program also included a few special events. One I would like to talk about in this article. This Tuesday morning a group called, “Blood: Water Mission” came and spoke to our children. They are a group of 6 cyclists from all over the U.S. of varying ages of 25 to 50. They are cycling to support clean water and clinic projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. Blood:Water Mission is an organization started by the band Jars of Clay. Each one of the cyclist has personally raised $1,000 for the cause in their own communities.

You may find out more about this group below. Please check out these websites and continue to pray for our Vacation Bible School Camp.
