Vacation Bible School 2011

Fruit of the Spirit

Vacation Bible School was held Tuesday, July 19 through Friday July 22. The theme this year was “Fruit of the Spirit: Jesus Living in You and Through You.” Fifty-seven children from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade participated in the week’s events. Over two dozen adults, with the help of 16 teen helpers, taught classes, served snacks, organized recreation activities, assisted with crafts, and shared God’s love for us with the children.

Each day began and ended with a group program including skits and singing. Each class studied the nine Fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness & Self-Control. Both the crafts that were created and the snacks that were served all strengthened the curriculum for that day, and ‘fruit’ related games were played both inside and outside.

Friday’s closing program ended with a parent tea and slideshow of scenes from the week (some are included above). A big thank you to everyone who made VBS such a wonderful and memorable week!
