Grace Kids VBS 2017: Campfire Stories

 

A Grace Story
Campfire Stories Wrap up
Written by: Children's Director Leslie Chambers

There is a little church happily situated behind brick faced businesses and bustling restaurants. Her name is Grace. Actually, Grace is more than her name. God’s grace is her foundation and definition. She is loved and deeply desires to share that love with others.

Last week she turned into a campsite with trees and tents and campfires. She welcomed 72 children and 36 helpers who camped with her for the week. Oh, the fun they shared! Together they danced, wrote music, sang songs, made crafts, played games, and ate scrumptious snacks. They listened to stories about Moses, Daniel, David, and Jesus. Most importantly, they learned God loves them and that they are characters in his amazing grace story. Grace wanted the children to know that God’s story takes place within their lives and the resolution to all their troubles is wrapped up in his love.

Grace was delighted to be so full of so much love and fun and energy and laughter. Before she had time to be sad when the camping trip was coming to an end, she began thinking about next year – maybe next year she will become a cruise ship and all of her friends from this year will bring their friends and together they will experience what it’s like to be anchored in God’s love!

With her whole heart, Grace wants you to know that God loves you. She hopes you’ll look at the pictures from her camping trip and that she’ll see you any and every Sunday at 10:30 AM where she waits to greet you with open arms.

We enjoyed listening to each other's favorite stories and learning more about God's story of how much He loves us. Thank you for sharing the week with us and for being a part of the adventure! See you next summer!
