Scenes from 2012 "Puritan" Vacation Bible School

CRBC hosted our annual "Puritan" Vacation Bible School this week from Monday through Wednesday evening. We call it a "Puritan" VBS, because we don't buy a pre-fab plan out of a box but simply use the Bible to teach age-integrated lessons from a portion of Scripture, along with Scripture memory songs, crafts, snacks, and recreation. You might also call it a "Regulative Principle" VBS. The focus of this year's study was the Life of Moses. Here are a few scenes:

Image: There was lots of music and singing. Among the favorite Scripture songs of the week: The fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22-23); Beloved, let us love one another (1 John 4:7-8); and Be bold! Be strong! (Joshua 1:9).
Image: Casey H. oversaw great theme-related snacks each evening.
