Vacation Bible School 2018
It’s that time of year again where the halls of Westside echo with the sound of wiggly, boisterous kiddos discovering the joy, fun, and life-giving love found only in Jesus. As always, our week of Vacation Bible School was jam-packed with summertime activities, loads of laughter, active worship, and wildly entertaining teachings on truths from God’s Word. This year 110 amazing volunteers hosted 320 kids within our walls.
From games to crafts to building lasting friendships, each moment with these precious littles demonstrated the value and love that Jesus feels towards them. When Jesus walked the earth, He took time for the least of these. He welcomed little children onto His knee and said that the Kingdom belonged to them. As Jesus took notice of children, He set an example for us to follow.
“Children come to Jesus freely because he calls them. They come to Him in a place of simple faith. Trusting, open and ready. Children are incredibly valuable and important to us here at Westside. We can do no less than what Jesus did. We value their innocence, trust and openness and know that from an early age they can step into a personal faith relationship with Jesus.” -Joanie Morelock, Westside Kids Director
We rejoice that 127 kids made decisions to respond to Jesus’ invitation to build a lasting relationship with Him during VBS this year. Each decision represents a heart, a family, and a community that has the potential to be forever changed by that one, faith-filled choice. We treasure these times where God swings wide the doors of influence in the next generation. We trust that God will continue to bless and strengthen these little ones in ways that will absolutely echo into eternity.
