VBS Day 1 and 2

It’s been a whirlwind couple of days!  Our VBS children’s program has started in grand fashion with an even bigger group of energetic and enthusiastic children and staff, and a new exciting theme for this year.  Last year’s program focused on the theme of trusting God, this year’s program kicked off with the return of new songs, skits, and teaching times focusing on the theme of “Standing Strong.”  Days 1 and 2 featured the return of the acclaimed tale of Nacho, played by Pastor Dave, his friend and fellow Luchador “Super Nam” and a familiar cast of supporting characters to tell the tale.  The staff has so much in store for this week- including the debut of the IBC “School of Rock” band, so stay tuned for future posts.  For now, here are some highlights from yesterday and today:
