VBS - Where it all began!

 

Pre 2020 we ran a full scale VBS program for ages four through fourteen at our facilities in Thermal (we run it inside where it is much cooler than the outside temperatures!).  This includes a worship time with lots of passion and getting the kids engaged, bible lessons, memorizing scripture, crafts, games and snacks.  It’s a fun-filled week where we invite and transport kids from the surrounding areas of Mecca, Oasis, Thermal and Coachella.  Every year the kids are challenged to consider the truth of God’s Word, hear the Gospel message clearly and at their level, and are given opportunity to respond by opening their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ. 

 

VBS gives us an opportunity to connect with kids for the first time and then plug them into our on-going discipleship programs throughout the rest of the year.

 

Summer of 2020 we had to put our large in house VBS on hold.  We were able to do a scaled down version using social media platforms.  While not ideal we were still able to connect with the kids and bring God's Word into their households and hearts.

Summer of 2021 we decided to do an in-house, albeit "scaled down version" of VBS having hired a new Children's Director and sensing the need to gather the kids again.  We were overwhelming surprised when 90-100 kids showed up each of the four days of "Rocky Railroad Escuelita" along with 30-40 volunteer helpers, many who were our own Tesoro high school or older "kids."  We had a great week and praise God for His provision in every way.  Enjoy a visual recollection of 2021 Escuelita (aka "little school" as our kids like to call VBS)
