Last week (June 22-25), KIN hosted VBS in the City at Norwood Manor Apartments in North Knoxville! We began with a block party on Monday night and returned Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings for music, crafts, games, Bible stories, and fun.
Throughout the week, we had 38 volunteers from 7 different churches and 2 agencies come and help out! We are so thankful for each and every volunteer who came to love on the kids. In addition, we registered 55 kids for VBS, 46 of whom are from Norwood Manor Apartments. The result? A week of laughter, silliness, friendship, and fun in the sun!
The theme for VBS this year was Gforce, which is short for God-Force. Each day we learned about a new way to put our faith into action. Tuesday we learned to move (Acts 17:28), Wednesday we learned to care (Galatians 6:2), and Thursday we learned to share (Matthew 28:19). Without a doubt, VBS was a blessing to everyone involved as we all learned from each other and played together.
Over the next several blog posts, I'll be sharing more about our week, so stay posted!
