From August 2-6, 2010, Restored Glory Christian Center hosted its first Vacation Bible School, and indeed, it was a success!Throughout the week, 40 children and 15 adults came to the church to learn, fellowship, volunteer, and have fun in the name of the Lord. Two of the participants also received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.The VBS theme, “God Has a Plan for My Life,” focused on the life of Moses and the Ten Commandments. Each night, VBS participants received a valuable lesson to apply to their daily walk with God. The nightly topics were as follows: “God wants me to obey,” “God wants to be first in my life,” “God is my friend,” “God gives second chances,” and “God wants His glory to shine in me.”Each lesson, innovatively taught by Pastor Eddie and Veronica Yon, was followed with corresponding arts and crafts, and games. In addition to developing the VBS curriculum, Mrs. Yon prepared daily newsletters, so children could review the lessons at home with their parents.
The event culminated on Friday night with a pizza and ice cream sundae party. The kids were also treated to a musical performance by Christian rap artist, “Boogie” (Steve Banks). Each child was awarded a certificate of participation, a salvation booklet (entitled “I’m Saved!! Now What?”) written by Pastor Eddie Yon, and a rap CD (entitled “Church Certified”) autographed by “Boogie.”
Restored Glory would like to thank all of the volunteers who gave their time, talent, and treasure to ensure the success of the event. The church also thanks the parents and children who participated and contributed so much to VBS success at Restored Glory Christian Center. To God be the glory!
