Vacation Bible School

V.B.S. 2017
First United Methodist Church Moorestown, NJ

V.B.S. is for children 4 years old through 4th Grade.

August 14th – 18th from 9:00am – 12:00pm.

For the week of August 14th -18th, 2017 children are invited to become members of a Roman Family.

Their surnames might be Cassisus, Maximus, Servius, Octavius or one of the other famous names of ancient Rome. Everyone will wear a colored sash to identify his/her family and will make a laurel wreath to signify victory. As they experience Rome with their “families,” children will learn of God’s love: It is a gift; it is always with us; it is worth sharing. Each morning we will start with worship and singing at Extello (Latin for “praise”).

Worship will include an offering of food, diapers, cereal and/or canned goods for the Area Food Pantries to give to needy families. Children huddle up with their “families” and share the Bible point of the day. Then it’s off to the Marketplace to chat with shopkeepers, the Olympic village to play games, and a hidden, underground church to meet with Paul and other Christians. At times they will be interrupted as a surprise drama unfolds to reinforce the day’s Bible point.

Come and join in the fun!
