“I love the theme this year. Everest: Conquering Challenges with God’s Mighty Power,” Boatman said. “I felt the topics that we will be talking about all week are topics kids and adults can relate to.”
First Baptist Church of Eupora will host Everest VBS July 5-9 from 5:30-8:30 nightly, with a special registration party set for 3:30 p.m. July 5 in the Family Life Center Parking lot. Children throughout the community from 4-years old to sixth grade are invited to be part of the fun!
“I am so excited about our kick-off registration party,” Boatman said. “This will be a time for kids to register for the week, play water games and have sno-cones. We will have a great time!”
Please be sure to bring a change of dry clothes and a towel to the kick-off party Sunday afternoon.
According to Group Publishing, At Everest VBS, children discover what it means to hold on to God’s mighty power in everyday life. Children participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, children will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings.
“Kids can expect to eat, sing fun songs that relate to the Bible stories, learn Bible verses and just have lots of fun,” Boatman said.
Each day concludes with a Summit Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 8:15 p.m. in the Family Life Center. There will be a special parent time at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 9 in the Family Life Center. Parents and grandparents are invited to attend.
“I love the excitement from all the kids each year at VBS,” Boatman said. “I feel this is an important outreach opportunity for our church, giving our church the opportunity to invite children wouldn’t normally join us for church,” Boatman said. “I also feel it is very important for all the kids to learn more about Jesus and learn to build their relationship with Him.”
“This is an important week in the lives of children and our church,” said Rev. Travis Gray of FBC Eupora. “Proverbs 22:6 says that we are to ‘Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.’ What hope do our children have except in the Lord? Pray for all who will be involved in any way.”
Everest VBS is for kids from four years old to sixth grade and will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each day. Parent time will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night in the Family Life Center. For more information, call (662) 258-3491.
