VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL - 2013

 

SonWest Roundup

June 10 - 14, 2013

 

 

Me an' my boys are glad y'all could make it.

 

 

     

Out in the wide-open spaces, the children discovered a colorful old town where all the excitement of the Wild West awaited! In SonWest, they celebrated all the fun of being buckaroos! There was grub, games, music, crafts - and amazing true stories that point to Jesus!

We traveled down the trail through the Old Testament stories of Moses to discover God's ultimate plan of salvation in Jesus, because "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).

Ya might wanna watch out for that first one.
He's a might ornery. Been on the trail too long, I suspect.

 

 

       

There' are two theories to arguin' with a woman.
Neither one works.

Psssssttt... Here's some cowboy advice I just heard.
The quickest way to double your money is
to fold it over and put it back into your pocket.
    
Oh.. and..
Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back.

"...Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:14-18

Every year for Vacation Bible School, the children support a mission or charitable organization.
For each of the last 2 years, we have helped supply the local food pantry with over 300 pounds of items.

Feed My Starving Children

This year, a door collection was taken for FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN. Money donated was used to pay for nutritious food packed and sent to needy children around the world, along with a Gospel message to feed their souls.

We (VBS and members of St. Matts Church) also participated with the "Feed My Starving Children" group which came to Tomah on July 12-13, 2013 to offer area residents an opportunity to help pack the "manna packs". Children's VBS donations were used to help pay for the supplies. About 20 members of St. Matts assisted in the packing of meals that are specifically formulated for malnourished children in 70 countries around the world. A single bag provides meals for 6 children and contains vitamins, minerals, flavoring, dried vegetables, soy nuggets and rice... and costs only 1.32 cents to produce.

"Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor."
- Proverbs 22:9

From Linda P., Webmaster:

Just a couple of notes...

Each year that I take photos for VBS, it is a true joy!


This year was extra-special.
Because of the western theme, we are transported back a few hundred years.
With some outfits and a few props, some of the photos were converted
to the old west 'sepia' tone, including the single photographs of each child.

Then.. I had a bit of fun with one photo.

You've heard of Buffalo Bill?

Meet our own... "Buffalo Phil"!

 

Also...

Have you ever heard of "photobombing"?

Photobomb - (verb)- to drop in a photo unexpectedly...to hop in a picture right before it is taken.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rogers has been known to 'photobomb' many Packer photos.

Well, one of our 'VBS kids' decided to photobomb during VBS.

If you haven't figured out who, scroll up and look again!

Have fun and enjoy!
