Recap: VBS stands for Vacation Bible Study, It’s just for Kids ages 4-10 & HopeNYC does it every year! Each VBS has a different theme!
BLAST OFF was VBS 2014 at HopeNYC Church! This incredible fun-filled weekend just ended & all the lucky little ones left with hope in their hearts, lots of wisdom, joy & back packs full of school supplies! Yes FREE BOOK BAGS! The children really enjoyed this year’s space themed VBS! The realistic NASA ship, The Blast Off T-shirts, Special space guest: Astronaut Reggie, The space monkeys, The create your own rocket station, Asteroid toss game, & tons more! The kids also got pizza, snow cones, face paint, prizes & a chance to go wild in the bounce house! Most importantly they learned about Almighty God & what Jesus has done for them through interesting stories & demonstrations (including a 4D movie) . They had fun learning songs & dance of praise…Yes in 3 Days! The children also got the chance to do a mission. They brought blank sketchers sneakers to life by adding gems & stickers. They decorated these shoes so nicely then filmed a short video… All for children in Panama with no shoes. It warmed my heart to see each kid raise their hand saying they wanted to go there one day. The Hope team will be flying there in September to distribute the wonderful shoes these kids made! VBS this year was out of this world! The most important lesson learned this weekend was to love eachother. The Hope kids showed love to kids in Panama they may never meet! They loved the new friends they have made in VBS, & we have even gotten cute reports that they “kissed their mommies at home” I was honored to be a crew leader & really enjoyed spending time with these kids.
