Our VBS – “Under the Sea – Diving into God’s Word!”
The 2017 Christ Lutheran Church’s VBS began with the transformation of the Fellowship Hall’s conversion into an underwater fantasy to help propel the students into the VBS’s theme of “Diving Deep Into the Word”. Volunteers used various decorating techniques to replicate a sea world from hanging inflatable fish, sea creature cutouts, underwater banners, colored paper, shower caps made to look like jellyfish and a large submarine with a functioning periscope.
The first day of VBS introduced the children to the wonders of the sea as shared by Pastor Greg via a short video on the sea and verses from Genesis on creation of the sea. Children were grouped by ages and sent to different sessions for crafts, Bible lessons, outdoor activities and then snack time.
Everyday at VBS the children were introduced to more wonders of the Word. By the end of the week the children learned more about God and experienced the wonders of the sea through the transformed Fellowship Hall.
