The Life Church Kids Ministry hosted VBS Summer Blast last week at our Manassas and Winchester campuses.  It was a week of “BUGGED OUT” fun and excitement!  Each day our kids started off with a rally where they worshipped, learned about the “Bug of the Day,” and heard a Bible story to set the theme for the day.  The kids then rotated through Craft Time, Snack Time, Game Time and Kid Vid Time where the day’s theme and Bible story became more applicable to them.  They ended the day with a closing rally where they got to worship more and have a lesson to close out the day.  Summer Blast was sprinkled with extra fun as the kids participated in a “Bug Competition” and a Penny War where they raised money to buy mosquito nets for kids in Africa where malaria is prevalent.  We had 373 kids attend VBS Summer Blast this year, and 66 of them began a brand new life with Jesus! We were blessed to have over 175 Volunteers to make it all happen!

We topped off the weekend with a Kids Take Over at all the services across all 4 of our campuses.  The kids lead worship, joined the Welcome Team, and assisted in the Offering and Prayer Teams. We even had a special message from our Kids Central leaders at each campus.  The day ended with baptisms where 48 kids (in addition to many adults) got baptized!  It was a day of fun, excitement, and inspiration as an additional 186 people gave their lives to Jesus at Kids Take Over!

A special thank you to our VBS and the Life Church Kids Teams for their diligence, sacrifice, and hard work.  We truly appreciate your heart for our next generation!
