Kids enjoy “In the Wild” VBS

July 23, 2019

By Tina Suarez-

Logan Street Baptist Church had an amazing week in the wild. This year’s Vacation Bible School theme, In the Wild, encouraged kids to zoom in and focus on Jesus. LSBC reached the city of Mt. Vernon and beyond with exciting music, arts and crafts, recreation, missions studies, and an emphasis on the Word of God. Kids enjoyed experiencing the story of young photographers trying to win a photography contest and learned awesome dance moves to VBS songs. Stephanie Gleason, LSBC’s fabulous VBS director, had many “firsts” to navigate this year. This was Logan Street’s first time to have VBS at night, first time having VBS in their new building, and the first VBS with their new pastor, Denver Ayres. There was even an adult VBS class this year as well.

During the week, a major storm knocked out the electricity at the church and put VBS in the dark. The kids and workers, however, gathered together singing songs and praising Jesus… a magnificent sight to behold. Also, 12 students gave their lives to Christ and had their salvation experience. That is the true reason hundreds of adults and kids gathered at LSBC last week.
