VBS 2019 July 8-12 - Was Amazing
To Mars & Beyond…..explore where God’s power can take you.
Windcrest United Methodist Church’s To Mars and Beyond Vacation Bible School 2019 was a galactic success! Kids became Voyagers and discovered how to serve God and God’s mission in their lives. They enjoyed an interactive, energizing, Bible based good time as they explored where God’s power can take them. Our “vector” verse for the week was Ephesians 3:20, “Glory to God who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us.” We were blessed with 142 children participating & over 70 volunteers each day. These numbers do not include all the volunteers that helped leading up to our week of VBS- mural painters, decoration team, financial assistance, prayer warriors, supply donations, etc.
This year we added 6th grade Missionaries. Each morning following the opening assembly, our Missionaries left the church to be His hands and feet in the community. They spent two days at CAM (Christian Assistance Ministry), two days at Agape Ministries and one day cleaning Takas Park and our church campus. This was a huge success. The 6th graders had a great time serving. We collected offering each day for CAM and peanut butter for Agape.
Our Closing Celebration on Friday night began in the Sanctuary with a review of the week’s Bible Stories, the children sang some of their favorite songs, a slide show, and a report from two of our 6th grade missionaries. The evening concluded with food, music and fun in the Courtyard and Bayless Hall. Special thanks to the United Methodist Men for cooking and serving dinner.
VBS is truly an ALL-CHURCH event! It is good to see our church spreading the Gospel in such a caring and loving way. An effort like this can only be accomplished with the tremendous dedication and sacrifice of all our volunteers (including the best YOUTH in all of Texas) & church family. God bless each and every one of you!
Save the date: July 6-10, 2020…..Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King's Armor VBS, where children will be invited to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God's power by exploring how we put on the armor of God.
