VBS 2023 “Keepers of the Kingdom”
Vacation Bible School was held July 17-20, 2023. Keepers of the Kingdom focused on the epic battle between two spiritual kingdoms, the Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of Darkness. Students learned how to become part of God’s good kingdom through faith in his Son, what the pieces of the armor of God are and what they represent, to put on what’s right (Jesus’ righteousness), then do right, to guard against false teaching and temptations, to be ready to give answers for the hope they have, and to be “keepers of the kingdom”.
During the week, we focused on Ephesians 6:10-18a, The Whole Armor of God. Each VBS Session started at Assembly where children sang songs, heard God’s Word, prayed, and learned about our Mission Project. Next, children rotated between five sites: Truth Talk Lesson, Crafts, Music, Treats and Science, and Games, before coming back together as a whole group for Closing. This year’s lessons included: The Two Kingdoms, The Belt, The Breastplate and Shoes, The Shield and Helmet, and The Sword and Prayer. The closing program was held on July 20th.
