VBS 2014 was a week full of fun, games, crafts, and adventure for kids all around Orange County. While all of these things are great, there is something else to celebrate.
Over the course of this week, more than 1000 kids (the largest number so far!) heard the Gospel – some for the first time. 71 children made first-time commitments to follow Christ, and hundreds re-dedicated their lives to Him. Through fun skits, games, and stories, volunteers were able to tell the “Big God Story” in unique ways that resonated with kids of all ages. From the littlest of preschoolers to teen junior leaders – many kids had stories of Christ becoming real to them to tell.
Hearts were also turned toward mission, and kids were able to play a tangible part in meeting the needs of others around the world. $5000 was raised to purchase over 4,500 chickens for RH partners in Uganda.
God moved in and through VBS, and stories are continually being shared that point to His great hand in the lives of children around Orange County.
