This year’s Vacation Bible School was wild! After five days full of fun activities and sharing the Gospel, VBS 2019 is one for the books. Many families were blessed as we were able to introduce Jesus to children and families who do not yet know and trust Him.
Our Children’s Minister, Jeanne Nation, is here to give you a rundown of the impact this annual tradition has made at Foothills.
What a great time we had at Vacation Bible School last week! Our theme was In the Wild. We looked at real life encounters with Jesus in the Scripture through the stories of Jesus in the Temple, the Baptism of Jesus, Jesus Walking on Water, Jesus Rose from the Dead, and Jesus appeared on the road to Emmaus.
We had an average of 260 kids each day (babies-5th grade). I want to say a huge “Thank You!” to the approximate 100 volunteers who helped make VBS a success.
Our leaders were able to have Gospel conversations with 34 kids during the week; 13 of the kids prayed to trust Christ for forgiveness of their sins! That’s what VBS is all about! We took up a mission offering to raise money to help some of our partners who run a mobile pregnancy center in Southeast Asia.
During the week, the kids collected a total of $1,146! We had a friendly Kiss the Pig competition to help raise the funds. As a result of the kids reaching their goal, Mrs. Stacey, Mr. Dustin, Mr. Logan, Mrs. Mindy, and I all had to kiss the pig during Friday night’s Family Night.

Thank you to all the leaders who served in VBS, especially those who took vacation time or rearranged their work schedules.
Thank you to the students – without your help, VBS would not be possible.
Thank you to those who could not be here during the week but supported us in prayer!
