Amazing Wonders Aviation sent Union Association kids, youth and adults traveling to some of the world’s most marvelous natural wonders, where they encountered God’s awesome power. Lives were changed as they recognized God’s power over all things, trusted that God is always in control, accepted God’s gift of forgiveness, celebrated that Jesus is alive, and learned to rely on God’s power.
In 2012, the associational VBS team conducted three training clinics and an early bird session. 216 people came from 21 Union Association churches, to be trained how to manage their flights, flight crews and passengers to reach their communities for Christ through VBS. Vacation Bible School is still one of the best tools to reach children in your community for Christ. Many salvations were reported and many new prospects were discovered as a result of VBS.
It’s time to turn VBS upside down! In 2013 we will be twisting, turning and diving as Colossal Coaster World will challenge kids to face their fears and trust God. There will be excitement around every curve as kids learn that God has given them a spirit of power, love and sound judgment.
Some churches may choose to jump into the Amazon Rainforest for Club VBS: Jungle Jaunt. Kids will discover the One True God, and be challenged to respond to Jesus. This is a great VBS option that can be used anytime and is great for any size VBS. Another option this year is for Colossal Coaster World Backyard Kids Club which gives you portable resources that can be used wherever you can gather a group of kids, apartments, parks or mission trips. Wow, lots of choices, I can’t wait.
Start planning now with prayer for VBS 2013 and join us in 2013. Early bird at the UBA office will be January 24 from 4-7:00 pm for Come and Go material viewing. Training Clinics will be held April 8th, 18th and 30th each from 7-9 pm. Locations will be announced at a later date.
