There was a time when First University  SDA Church longed to have a high population of young children.  On July 17 – 24 the Lord blessed the church with children ages 5-12 at its largest vacation bible school ever. The entire church celebrated with the children at this years VBS.  Everyone had  “red hot fun in the sun time” at fiesta VBS.   During the week long VBS, the children learned that “Jesus is our Friend, Jesus is our Savior, Jesus is our Lord, Jesus is our Helper, and Jesus is our Life”.

The children were excited and came prepared for a howling good time with fiesta music.   “This was an excellent opportunity to witness not only to the children in the community but the parents as well” stated Pamela Harris, First Universities Children’s Ministry Department Leader.  Parents were invited to stay for a fiesta meal prepared by the volunteers of the church, who spiced up our event.

The kids chose a daily challenge which provided them with an exciting way to live out what they learned each day at VBS.  VBS ended with a grand fiesta event that was composed of bible learning centers where they could see, hear, touch and taste that the lord is good. Parents participated at each station event with their child.  There were bible point crafts, team building games, lively fiesta songs and tasty treats.  Everyone was fired up about Jesus and looks forward to Vacation Bible School next year.
