Summer can be so much fun for kids. It can be just as much for for adults too! I know first hand, as my church had asked me to photograph our recent Vacation Bible School, and as my little girl was participating, and I love to give back to my church, I jumped right in. I have to say that it has been some time since I was in VBS, and things have changed quit a bit. It is such a fun way to learn for the children. The theme this year was Pirates and Buccaneers, and with the band playing pirate songs, and a 30 foot tall water slide of a shark eating a boat, everyone dressed in pirate outfits and yelling AARGHH!! How can you not have fun. Pastor Jeff rounded it out by getting the crowd to join him in saying Bible verses In his Mickey Mouse and Scooby Doo voices. Giving the kids and parents alike a great laugh. Participate next year at your local church vacation Bible school, you might learn something, and have a little fun too.
I don’t know if other churches out there are like my church, but I hope they are. It is a great place to be, and you can see the smiles on the kids faces in the photographs above, they had a fantastic time. Thanks Pastor Jeff, and the Church at Southside in Athens, it was a glorious experience and I look forward to next year.
