Vacation Bible School #5

When life is scary—-God is good.


So much is happening around us these days. There is always bad news and hardly anything good is heard. There is much talk of the major threats to our environment and it can be very scary for adults as they look to the future, so I’m sure it would be the same for the kids, if they understood what was happening.


On this particular day, the kids got to voice some of the things that they were afraid, and it went from one extreme to another. Some of the older kids said they were afraid of scary movies, while others were afraid of guns, or they may have seen someone with a gun. The very young kids were afraid of being bitten by mosquitoes.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

When life is scary—-God is good.

The craft we made on this day was the treasure chest, and the kids got to write a note and put in their chest before they would close it up. At this young age they already knew that a treasure chest is where we keep precious things, like jewelry or marbles—as I would later find marbles in one of the treasure chests.

In Abigail’s class on this day, they would work with different shapes to create a piece of art.

I pray that as the kids grow older that they will also come to hold God close and treasure Him, just as they would their earthly treasures if not more.
