GRACE LUTHERAN CHURCH
FAMILY OUTPOST VBS 2020
July 27th, 29th, and 31st five Outpost Locations were engaged in Grace’s Family
Outpost Vacation Bible School (VBS). Through online stories and songs, and with kits of supplies distributed by the church, 7 adults and 21 youth and children learned about God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. They were then challenged to make a difference for the Gospel in their communities, to their neighbors and friends.
Due to CoVid-19, our annual on-site VBS was transformed into an at-home mission to the community. Though the location was different, families were still able to engage in true Bible stories, fun crafts and games, and tasty snacks that all served to dive into the theme that “Jesus is the Light of the World”. Each outpost daily worked to develop their own mission to let God’s light shine to those around them.
Families chose to engage their neighbors by praying for them; making soap and talking about how God washes sins away; and collecting school supplies, socks and underwear for Harry-Abate elementary kids. Families found themselves engaging in Godly activity with their communities.
Although strangely different, this year’s VBS was a wonderful blessing to our church, to the families that participated, and to the neighborhoods in which our families live! Our regular volunteers and coordinators are praying for a chance to see families face to face for next year’s Vacation Bible School.
