It’s only two weeks away. I have a love/hate relationship with Vacation Bible School. I love that you get children and families into Church that otherwise wouldn’t attend. I hate the prep, the stress, the always-never-enough volunteers, and the hectic week that VBS is. Don’t get me wrong all of the headaches that come with VBS are worth it.
Recently, We got brand new padded chairs for our fellowship hall. We had the metal folding chairs; about three different colors, uncomfortable, and half broken. A member of our church decided that enough was enough and bought nice new stackable black padded chairs. It was a welcome improvement.
Knowing our VBS theme would be “Colossal Coaster World” I saved the boxes. I could see that they would make great looking roller-coaster cars with some paint and imagination. Yesterday (Wednesday) we had a small group of only five youth, it’s summer and as a whole we’ve been hurting in the numbers department since graduation. I decided that after our lesson we would make a quick trip to the store and get some spray paint and have the youth decorate the boxes to look like coaster cars. They loved it, and it was an easy way to get them involved in something outside of the youth program.
