1. Day 3 Recap
Today at the in-person portion of VBS we sang the Treasured theme song, helped Dr. Digglestone find the true treasure without a gold-sniffing parrot, experienced the hardships that King Hezekiah faced, Made our friends jump with Alarm-inators, and explored a sciency-wow experiment that shows how God’s comforting love wraps up our worried hearts.
2. Bible Adventures
In today’s story, we experience King Hezekiah’s worry in the face of a bully, lay his hardships before God, and find comfort in God’s promises.
3. Imagination Station
Test out what makes us anxious, then craft an Alarm-inator that’ll make your friends jump!
4. Vine Dining
French fries are sometimes called “comfort food”. Comfort foods are filling foods that just make us feel good, such as a food a parent or family member makes us to help us feel better when sick. One of our favorite comfort foods are French fries – how about you?
We all need comfort in our lives. I’m so glad God comforts YOU! 2 Corinthians 1:4 tells us, “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.”
Ingredients Needed: fries, dipping sauce
