Vacation Bible School lights Christian way

Lots of fun and help at the Canadian Reformed Church VBS

Children enjoy craft time at VBS

“Oh my God, this love, how can it be?”

Forty three children sang those words while swaying to music with open hands at the Canadian Reformed Church last Thursday.

It was the children’s last singing and lesson time at Vacation Bible School.

The school runs every year to reach out to Houston families and “share the truth about who God is and the amazing things he has done,” said Tanya Vander Mooren, program co-leader.

Each day at the Bible school begins with a short Bible reading, some singing and prayer.

Then children learn a Bible story and split into groups to talk about it.

Next they have small activities, snacks, outdoor games and crafts.

Finally, they have more singing, a small closing Bible devotion and prayer.

This year the theme was John 8:32—“The truth will set you free.”

The children talked about the life and miracles of Jesus, and how he is the way, the truth and the life, said Vander Mooren.

“It was fun,” said co-leader Michelle Dykstra.

Vander Mooren added that they had lots of help from young people and ladies in the church.

“That just made the week go really smoothly,” she said.

“I’d definitely like to do it again.’
