HUMC VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 2022

July 18-22

 

 

Our Food Truck Party VBS invited children of all ages to get on a roll with God as a parade of Food Trucks rolled into Hockessin UMC for the summer's biggest party!  Using Matthew 6:11; "Give us this day our daily bread", children were invited to pray as Jesus teaches. Through stories in both the Old and New Testaments, this VBS opened kids' eyes to the countless ways God provides, loves, and cares for us while inviting them to join God in providing, loving, and caring for others. The goal of Food Truck Party is to help children build on the practice of using daily prayer to turn to God for their needs - and also to serve as the hands of God in ensuring that the needs of others are met.

 

In small grade-level groups that were led by adults & youth volunteers from HUMC, children rotated to areas focused om Music, Games, Crafts, Science, and Drama. Each evening began and ended with all groups together for songs and lessons taught with the help of entertaining puppet, DJ Cupcake, with a Food Truck Party theme.
