Vacation Bible School  June 23-27, 2014.

MONDAY JUNE 23-27 2014 - Vacation Bible School Starts!

The Jesus Connection. 

"God invited you into this wonderful friendship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:9, TLB)

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is an outreach meant to bring in children who don’t normally attend church and to teach them the gospel. As an evangelistic tool, VBS helps churches fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19).
Vacation Bible School began in the 1890s. A New York doctor’s wife wanted to find a
way to keep children off the streets in the summertime, and so she rented a large beer hall in the East Side in order to conduct what she called

“Everyday Bible School.” Her idea expanded, and eventually the New York City Baptist Mission Society established several of these Bible schools around the city.   (source; Got questions.org)
Planning and implementing Vacation Bible School can present challenges with logistics, resources, refreshments etc.  because you never really know who and how many will turn up.  Then you wonder if you will be able to find enough volunteers to work with you.  But with all these concerns, we know that God wants us to teach his children from 3-103; and we at Mount Zion know that this is a glorious and fulfilling experience!  Enjoy a snap shop of a Joyful and glorious week below.....

We look forward to seeing you  in 2015!
