Vacation Bible School 2020

******  2020 Virtual VBS  ******



You made it...we are so glad you are here! Welcome to this year’s Virtual VBS! We sure do miss you, but we didn’t want to miss out on some of the VBS fun, so we put VBS fun on videos for you to enjoy! Please be sure to come back often; we’ll be adding new videos! 


#1 This first video is to welcome you and explain what we are doing...also, learn how to make a puppet out of a paper lunch bag!


“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1



#2 Remember JP the penguin, our puppet friend from last summer? He’s back and he has some silly jokes to share with you!

  Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”

Psalm 126:2


#3 More JP silliness

  “A cheerful heart is good medicine...” Proverbs 17:22



#4 Miss Chloe is a VBS helper who loves to fish so much, that she thought you might like to join her!

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12

“And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.””Matthew 4:19




#5 God really shows us how amazing He is in creation and nature and SCIENCE...isn’t science a BLAST? John and Chloe have a blast showing us how two things, working together, can create a new thing! (Notice that they are outside if you and your parents do this experiment at home!)


Here are great reminders to work together:

Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:10

 “If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” 1Corinthians 12:26


#6 Did you ever notice how yawns are ‘contagious’? When I see someone yawn, I can’t help it, I start to yawn too! SMILES WORK THE SAME WAY!!! When someone smiles at you, doesn’t it make you want to smile back? Guess what! You can help people around you feel a little happier too...TRY it! Look someone in the eyes, think about how much God loves that person, and start to smile! Keep watching and smiling and I think you’ll see a smile starting on their face! Once you see that you made them smile, you’ll start smiling even can’t help it!!!! (By the way, if they ask you why you are smiling, just tell them that you were thinking about how much God loves them!)


“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”


1 Thessalonians 5:11
