1. Day 2 Recap
Today at the in-person portion of VBS we sang some new great songs, shared our God Sightings and added gems to the decorations up front, watched Dr. Diggingstone’s crazy treasure tracker in action, hid in a cave during Bible Adventures, experimented with sound during Imagination sound, and took a “High-Hertz Ear Exam” where we were reminded how God hears everything we say!
2. Bible Adventures
In today’s story, we hid in a cave and discovered that God heard David as David and his army hid from the angry King Saul!
3. Imagination Station
Experiment with sound, then use a surprising Sing-a-mabob to remember that God hears us…no matter what sounds we make!
4. Vine Dining
Create a delicious Treasure Mix! God listens to us when we talk with him. The plain flavor of cereal we start with reminds us that god hears and cares about our prayers…even when they’re just about simple, everyday things like wanting to make new friends or do well at a sporting event. Next we add salty snacks, which remind us of salty tears we may cry when we’re scared, sad, or alone. Our prayers can seem bigger or more important when we’re facing something sad and scary! The sweet candy we add reminds us that we can pray and talk with God when life is sweet – when things are good and our hearts want to celebrate. No matter how we pray, God hears YOU, and you are treasured!
Ingredients Needed: snack plate, plain cereal (puffed rice, plain Chex), sweet snack (dried fruit, M&M, Skittles), popcorn
5. KidVid Cinema
