Vacation Bible School program moves local kids

Over 80 local kids came out for the "Gotta Move" VBS program at the Houston Baptist Church last week.

Over 80 local kids came out for the “Gotta Move” Vacation Bible School program at the Houston Baptist Church last week. Kids painted rocks, designed t-shirts and Bible covers and made stress balls, as well as enjoyed snacks, games and Bible study. With flashing lights, black light and a smoke machine in the church sanctuary, kids jumped and danced to music at the opening and closing each of the five days of the program. The VBS theme, ‘Gotta Move,’ taught kids about how having faith means taking action and showing love, peace and kindness.
