Vacation Bible School (VBS) has been a tradition at Cedar Park First United Methodist Church. We invite all children in entering grades 1 through 5th. In the past we have had two offerings. One is held in the summer, and another is held in the Christmas season. There is a minimal fee to register the kids for the VBS.
Our summer was different from previous years MEGA Sports VBS Camps, but we believe it was still very rewarding to the kids as well. This year the theme was Treasure Hunt VBS 2022. It was a 3-day session event from June 14th -16th 6pm to 8:15pm. Treasure Hunt invited the kids to arise and shine because the light of God’s love has come and is shining on them. Our mission was to guide the kids in search of the Infinite Lantern. Our Quest of God’s light is based on Isaiah 60:1 “Arise! Shine! Your light has come, the Lord’s glory has shone upon you.”
There were three interactive events which were based on the Theme of the day.
The Creation Story from Genesis 1:1 – 2:9
Faith Through the Roof from Luke 5:17 – 26
The “Lost” Parables from Luke 15
Each day contained three main stations that encompassed the Bible Storyteller, Craft and Recreation. Each station had a rotation schedule by age group. In additional, the day was filled with music, snacks and fun to reflect the day’s session.
