VBS: Now and Then

We started Vacation Bible School at church last night. Our theme is Avalanche Ranch…cowboys, horses, and lots of “Wahoo”ing. Lots of fun. As a veteran of Bible school, I feel I’m safe in making some comparisons in VBS 2007 and VBS 1983.

Now: Held in the evening.

Then: Held in the morning.

Now: Theme

Then: No theme except Jesus loves you.

Now: Lots of songs with hand motions

Then: Lots of songs with hand motions.

Now: Older ladies of the church serve the snacks.

Then: Older ladies of the church serve the snacks.

Now: Snacks fit theme

Then: Oreos (aka Bible School cookies in my family…that’s how seldom we ate them at home) and Kool-Aid (never had that at home) That was part of why morning VBS was so awesome: cookies and Kool-Aid before lunch. Yes!

Now: Crafts (or as one of my preschool  crew members said last night “craps”)

Then: Crafts

Now: Lots of summer fun seeing friends and making new ones.

Gotta love VBS. Wahooo!
