Vacation Bible School
The Adventures of David VBS!
VBS 2018 was held June 11-15 at Church of the Good Shepherd. Through Bible stories, music, crafts, and games, this year’s Vacation Bible School helped children explore how God worked through a shepherd boy to lead God’s people.
For many years, Lakeside has been a part of a community Vacation Bible School along with Church of the Good Shepherd, First Presbyterian, St. Andrew's Episcopal, and West Haven Presbyterian Churches. Our children as well as adult volunteers enjoy sharing this time of learning and fun with friends from neighboring churches. The participating churches host VBS on a rotating basis.
Our goal is to engage our children in learning Biblical stories and applying those truths in an active life of faith. Each year, our VBS offering is designated for a local ministry. Some of those ministries have included Down East Partnership for Children, SWIM Network, Tar River Mission Clinic, Bassett Center, My Sister's House, United Community Ministries, and POF-FIGS.
VBS typically registers approximately 120 children, ages three through fifth grade. Youth in grades six through twelve serve as assistants for classrooms and activiites. Each day is organized in a rotation model which includes Opening Worship, Bible Stories, Music, Crafts, Recreation and Refreshments.
