One of FBCTLH’s goal is to reach our community for Christ. Vacation Bible School plays such a huge role in reaching out to our community. Hundreds of children come into the church for VBS every year. This year was going to be extra special with it being my first VBS at FBCTLH. Do not worry! We are not canceling Vacation Bible School. However, it will not look as it has in the past.
With Covid-19 around and its effects still in play, we have decided to create a virtual Vacation Bible School experience. FBCTLH has partnered with other local churches in Tallahassee to make this happen. I have been meeting with other Children’s Ministers around town and it appears that many of their churches have been financially impacted by Covid-19. This puts a strain on the local church to put on VBS. Establishing this partnership makes Vacation Bible School possible for every church in the community to have a great event. Think of all the possibilities! There could be thousands of children in Tallahassee doing Vacation Bible School together all at the same time! What an amazing Gospel opportunity!
Mark your calendars! VBS TLH will be June 15–19. Each morning at 9:00AM we will be hosting a LIVE worship rally and Bible lesson. There will be giveaways! All the rotations (music, recreation, crafts, and snacks) will be prerecorded so the kids can pick and choose what they want to participate in. The crafts, snacks, and rec rotational videos will come with instructions and a supply list. If your child misses the LIVE video, it will be on the website to be viewed at their convenience. Be on the lookout for a special VBS craft package for the children in our children’s ministry.
Our theme this year is Concrete and Cranes. The children will learn how to develop a strong foundation on Jesus Christ. Each day we will look over a different foundation: love, forgiveness, worth, promise, and life. Our VBS Scripture verse is found in Philippians 1:6, “I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
