Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a great opportunity for kids, ranging from first- to fifth-grade, to have a lot of fun and learn about God.
At VBS, kids are involved in a variety of activities including singing, eating snacks, arts and crafts, participating in plays, and coming up with group games. They have the opportunity to meet new friends and be socially active.
There are several churches that run a VBS program. The local CBC (Chinese Baptist Church) on Beacon Hill hosted their VBS program from July 13 to July 17 this year.
Each day, VBS had a new game show theme and a new Bible story associated with it. This year, it provided games like “Deal or No Deal” and “Jeopardy.” Through these games, kids learn classic Bible stories such as Gideon and Esther.
The program is free of charge and open to the public. If you would like to enroll your child in the program, you can simply fill out a registration form.
If you missed CBC’s week of VBS, other churches host similar programs. You can find the contact information about the program on their website or by contacting the church directly. ♦
