Almost 400 kids are spending time at Eastmont Baptist this week for Vacation Bible School.
The theme this year? Son Spark Labs, putting a focus on God’s plan as well as science.
“God created gravity, he created the laws of nature and how we can see his hand in everything around us. And just using these simple experiments to enlighten kids, to give them the understanding there is a god who loves them,” said Children’s minister Jeremy Lynch.
And it’s not just experiments. The students are studying the bible and singing songs to remember their lessons.
Some of the kids have been coming for a long time, like 10 year old Zeph Key.
“I’ve gone every year and I’ve loved it every time I come here so,” said Key.
Most the the kids who come to VBS don’t even go to the church. A lot of the members bring guests, and that’s one of the reasons that Pastor Mike Northcutt looks forward to the summer every year.
“It’s probably our most evangelistic event of the year. WE can do more in one week of vacation bible school than three months of sunday school. It’s just a concentrated learning time,” said Nothcutt.
