Wilderness Escape – Day 3

IMG_4292

We continue to have a great week at Wilderness Escape VBS.  Day 3 – Wednesday included a presentation by Moses about how God helps us.  To illustrate this he told the story of how the Israelites battled the Amalekites (Exodus 17:8-16).  Aaron and Hur helped Moses keep his staff raised above his head during the battle. God’s help for us includes the help of other people in our lives.

 

Another special feature of Wilderness Escape VBS is the “Israelite Camp”.  This is housed in our fellowship hall.  The room is set up with tents and special vendors who help the students enter into the world of the ancient Israelites.  There are various shops where the children can engage with adults who help them get their food, do crafts, and learn about how various people struggled with their faith in the time of the Exodus.  In addition to the food there have been six shops:

Wilderness Escape – Day 1

Moses led the Children of Israel through the Red Sea at the first night of Wilderness Escape Vacation Bible School.  Best of all, the children of the community and congregation had the opportunity to get to know more about God’s love and that we can trust in the Lord.

You can still participate in Vacation Bible School at MLLC in Carmine. Come on out Tuesday through Friday.  We begin Day 2 at 5:30 p.m.  We are having a great time and would love to have you be part of our great time together.  Thank you to God for our great time.  Thank you to parents, grandparents, friends and supporters who make it possible for this great week of learning and outreach to happen.

Our Final Program will be at worship on Sunday, July 27, at 9 a.m.
