I am a C, I am a C-H, I am a C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N.

1. First things first, there are basically three main VBS themes: Space, Superhero, and Beach.

Summer break is coming and that means VBS is coming! Here is a link to our FBB website! Sign up here at this link!…

2. Nowadays wearing the same shirt five days in a row is frowned upon, but during VBS it was a rite of passage.


5. And you knew as soon as you heard the first few notes of “Awesome God” that worship time was about to get ~lit~.

my lil cousin decided to try on his halloween costume today and..... ima just leave this here

7. And you about died when your crush let you wear their WWJD bracelet.

have some extra WWJD bracelets so let me know if you want one!

You knew it was meant to be if they had a cloth bracelet instead of the rubber ones.

8. You mentally prepared for snack time, because it meant eating off-brand Oreos, Cheese Nips, and warm Sprite.

Whatchu know bout them Vacation Bible School hood cookies!

No shade or anything, but I'm pretty sure our parents tithed enough money that you can afford actual Oreos.


10. You only found out that "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" was not an original Christian hymn years later.

AINT NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH 😜 👊/||\_ _/¯ ¯\_ AINT NO VALLEY LOW ENOUGH 👋 \ 😳 || \_ _/¯ ¯\_

You still got down to it though.

11. You were dead serious about crafting and nobody could come for your beaded bracelet game or your construction paper crosses.

Of course the colors of the beads told a story. Red was Christ's blood, black was sin....


13. You got really good at games that involved memorizing bible verses.

You always had those short verses on deck like John 11:35, "Jesus wept."

14. If you worked at VBS then you knew making an entire set out of paper and cardboard meant going home with paper cuts all over.

15. You also knew a $50 budget doesn't cover costumes for the skits so you'd have to improvise.

Our VBS Closing! With the rusty soldier, what a guy that Paul is lol


17. And you knew the struggle of trying to make Jesus relatable to kids through any means necessary.

18. By the end of the week you were exhausted and so ready for VBS to be over.
