Vacation Bible School For 100

Charity and fellowship are key themes

The circus was recently in town with “Circus Spectacular” at the Vacation Bible School (VBS) at Garden City Community Church in which 100 children attended. The church has sponsored an educational and fun-filled VBS for many years. 

 

The circus-themed week featured the keywords follow, love, trust and share. Bible stories about how we should follow Jesus, being kind and loving to one another, trusting God when we are afraid and spreading the good word about Jesus.

A special Noah’s Ark project was done. There were coordinated crafts, drama, science, snack time and recreation projects for the enthusiastic children.

 

The students gathered over 800 bottles of water that they donated to the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN) in Hempstead as their service project. They also collected over $600 in coins to tithe and help those in need.

More than 70 adults and young people volunteered for the worthwhile program. Heading VBS was the Reverend Sullivan, interim church school director Paula Tusiani- Eng and church school administrator, Rhonda Kraff.
