We had a wonderful first day at To Mars and Beyond (TMAB) Vacation Bible School! Today the students got to “Go Beyond with Kindness” as they enjoyed making galaxy mobiles, eating watermelon stars and space gloves (cheese puffs), and drinking Tang (created for astronauts!), enjoying recreation, learning songs including the TMAB Theme Song (On to Mars and Beyond) and Just a Little Bit, making balloon rockets and disappearing pennies, and hearing the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke 10:25-37. Our theme verse for the week is “Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us!” from Ephesians 3:20.
The 5th & 6th grade put their faith into action by participating in a project with the Salvation Army and First UMC, preparing school supply backpacks. Tomorrow they will work at the Genesis food pantry. All of the students are putting their faith into action by living out their Power Launchers at VBS and beyond and by collecting quarters for Coffeyville Friends of Animals.
We feel so blessed to have everyone here this week to learn and love God. We look forward to two more wonderful days!
On Sunday, July 14th, we will celebrate VBS during worship. The children and youth who have been participating in VBS will share what they have learned during the week. All of their families and friends are invited to join us for worship at 9:00 a.m and show their support for the kids! Please come worship with us!
