Finishing Up VBS
After that, we broke into three groups (just as the kids did all week) and rotated through three stations - lesson time, snack time and craft time. Our group began with a 20-minute lesson time where a gentleman taught us on the last two verses of Psalm 23. We then moved to the basement for a snack time of donuts with hot and cold beverages. We were also shown the kids' craft projects from the week. They had hand-printed a bench, foot-printed two large stepping stones and finger-printed a stone of a lamb (see above) - all of which will be placed in the church flower beds. They also made some smaller projects. Our group's last time slot was craft time. We were all seated at a long row of tables and chairs and instructed to color in the letters of a paper banner containing the last two verses of Psalm 23. (The previous two groups had done the other four verses.) It was fun watching young and old alike coloring, laughing and "bickering" together!
After group time, we proceeded back to the sanctuary to finish up with more singing, prayer and benediction, and an invitation to the annual VBS picnic at a member's home. A fun (and clever) morning!
