Vacation Bible School is always one of the most anticipated and exciting weeks of the year in our Children’s Department at Petrie UMC. Every year we transform our church into an amazing new environment to immerse children in the adventure of learning about God and growing closer to Him. As we listen to the prophets foretell the light of the world we are given courage to believe that only God can fulfill a promise of Jesus’ return. Each night our little spelunkers enjoy a lip-smacking dinner to prepare for a “big dig” in the Bible. The children walk on water with Jesus and Peter; watch Jesus die and come back to life; and explore how the Holy Spirit works in our lives, and experience passing the power. Imaginations are encouraged while making “Sciency-Fun Gizmos” such as cave snot and cracking open geode rocks. Each night is concluded with everyone praising Jesus together with AWESOME music. VBS is where children and adults – (we enjoy it as much as the children!) can experience how much fun we can have learning about God!
