Several of the students at the Bush Memorial Baptist Church Vacation Bible School wore T-shirts with one particular Bible verse on Friday.

The verse read, “Our Lord is great, vast in power his understanding is infinite.”

This verse is just a small example of what the young people have learned at the VBS this week, the church’s VBS is also known as “Camp Troy” as the morning shifts into evening activities.

“I’d like for them to know that God loves them very much and wants them to know Jesus as their savior and Lord,” said Family Minister Marshall Lecroy. “And understand His desire to have a relationship with them, so that they can have eternal life.”

Lecroy said that the church has seen a lot of excitement about the “Amazing Wonders Aviation” theme, which has been a common theme with other Vacation Bible Schools in the area.

He said VBS has been very fun this year, and he’s enjoyed interacting with kids and teaching them about the Bible.

“It makes me very excited to see them learn more and to be able to talk with students one-on-one about their questions and to pray with them to receive salvation.”

Lecroy said he would like to thank the community for its support of VBS; he also thanked the church and volunteers.

The kids took part in recreation, arts and crafts, missions and Bible study throughout the week. In the afternoons, the children participate in volleyball, basketball, and fishing, as well as cheerleading and jewelry making.

On the last day of VBS the children had a “final dance party,” where the kids danced and dove under a pole while playing limbo, the kids also made s’mores for an afternoon snack.

Elissa Calhoun, 11, said she learned the ABC’s of being a Christian, she said the ABCS were fun and easy to remember.

“We’ve learned that God has power over everything,” said 10-year-old Hudson Sheldon. “I really do believe in God, I really respect Him as the king of the world.”

The Bush Memorial Baptist Church VBS ended on Friday with 130 kids enrolled.
