Vacation Bible School (VBS)
What is Vacation Bible School (VBS)?
Vacation Bible School is a week long children's event each July from 9:00 - 12:00 for children in PreK through Grade 6. Children enjoy singing, Bible discovery, games, crafts and snacks. It is a great opportunity for children to make new friends and for parents and families to connect with others in the community. Children from many surrounding towns attend our VBS making it a lively and exciting week!
The 2020 VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
In an effort to honor the safety of our congregation and the children in our community, we have decided that we will not be holding a Vacation Bible School this year. We pray that we’ll be back with a VBS program in the summer of 2021 that will be better than ever! Please keep the Christian Education Board in prayer as we look forward to our fall programs in an effort to put programs together that will feed the souls of our children and adults alike, while also ensuring everyone’s wellbeing.
A Mom called the church office and related this story.
She began by noting that her kids have grown up in the church and have gone to many Vacation Bible Schools.
The weekend after VBS her children were playing in the sprinkler. The sister said to her brother, “Do you see the dirt on your feet? That dirt is just like our sin. Sin makes us dirty. Do you see how putting your foot in the water washes it clean? That’s just like what Jesus does for us, He washes us clean.”
She continued on and when she was done her mom asked her where she got that from and her daughter said, ‘From First Baptist Abington’s VBS’.
She then mentioned that she appreciated how nice all the staff were to the kids and noticed how sweet the teens were to the little ones. She thought the church did a great job!!
