Vacation Bible School - June 2007

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!

There's No Place Like Home I've been wanting to do a post about our Vacation Bible School for some time now. Since summer is almost over, I thought I would just use this opportunity during Show and Tell to share with you our wonderful week we had in God's house back in June!
Mr. and Mrs. Arnold travel all over the United States, directing VBS, revivals, etc. We were honored to have them back again this year at our church for this summer's Vacation Bible School! Isn't her smile just delightful? Please pray for Bro. Arnold as he is fighting some health issues.
I'd like to introduce to you "Felicia the Fox"!! Mrs. Arnold did her voice. The giggle was to die for and Felicia would try to sing REALLY high pitches. It was hilarious. The kids would just look at each other and giggle.

Some of our kiddos holding the visualized "Wordless Book"!

Brother Arnold beginning to perform his chalk art.

One night, he drew Joseph in his coat of many colors!

Shane won this piece of art by Brother Arnold by bringing the most visitors to VBS! It represents the Garden of Eden. When placed under a black light, you will see Jesus hanging on the cross for our sins.

Brother Jon Yates leading us in the opening exercises with the help of the kiddos of course! On the last night of VBS, Shane was pleased to be asked to come up and hold the Bible.

A couple of the men were called on to come hold up a song!

Oh my, you simply must meet "Milly" and "Lily" some day. They had a comical way of reviewing the lesson from the night before and setting up the new lesson.

Some of our moms helping out!

Mrs. Arnold teaching the memory verse. She is one awesome and talented lady. She sings, does puppets, acts the part of Milly, teaches the Bible verses, plays piano while her husband is doing his chalk art, etc. and all with a great, big, ol' beautiful Christ like smile. She never seemed tired or preoccupied.

The best thing about VBS this year is that we had several children accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Right now the number of children escapes my mind, but God knows who they are!

Looks like a wonderful experience for the summer! My S&T is a bit summerish too, but nothing like VBS!

Happy Friday.

I really enjoyed your VBS pictures!

I remember many visits from the Arnolds at our church in Florida when I was growing up. He does such a great job with his chalk talks.

Praise the Lord for the souls won to Christ as a result of VBS!

I taught VBS for many years when my children were little. This brings back so many memories...

What a wonderful team the Arnolds make! I'm so glad for the children who accepted Christ and the ones who were encouraged in their faith.

Great pictures! It looks like everyone had a blessed time!

That brings back a lot of memories for me. When we lived in South Carolina, the church we attended invited a family every year to do our VBS. I can't remember their last names, but they were Mr. Bill and Mrs. Nancy. Oh what fun we had. Looks like your kiddos had fun too!!


Happymama said...

MASON! I just remembered their last name. It was Mason. LOL
