Vacation Bible School starts THIS SUNDAY at First Baptist Church in Thorndale! Our theme this year is Agency D3: Discover, Decide, Defend. We’ll start with supper at 5:30 for the whole family. Then, agents from ages 3 through 6th grade will stick around to investigate who Jesus is through Bible study, music, crafts, recreation, missions, and snacks! Notice that VBS runs from Sunday – Thursday this year. Friday, August 1 will be our Family Night, which will include songs performed by the kids, food, bounce houses, face painting, and FUN! Save time on the first night of VBS by registering online at http://www.fbcthorndale.com/vbs (You can also find out..

ATTENTION FBC Thorndale folk — This Saturday is VBS decorating day! The church will be open starting at 9 a.m. for decorating. Even if you are not a teacher or helper with your own classroom, we could really use your help with the fellowship hall and other common areas. We need the church to be transformed into Agency D3 Headquarters before Sunday morning. Also, if anyone reading this happens to have any adult-sized plain T-shirts (preferably white) that you don’t need, we could use them for a VBS craft – we’re making lab coats! Please bring them to the church Saturday or Sunday if you have them. Thanks so much.

Our VBS kickoff event was a huge success! A whopping 31 kids showed up for agent training. Here they are playing a game after watching the Rocket Pack Jack movie and learning the Agency D3 theme song. Huge thanks to all the adults that helped out and all the parents who brought kids. Agency D3 kicks off next Sunday night, 5:30-8:30. See you then!

We could still use a few more adults and teens to help out with VBS. We especially need people to help out the 3-4 year old and Kindergarten teachers during their Bible lesson time. These are usually our biggest groups. We could also use some extra help in the kitchen! Please let me know if you can be there so I can be sure everything is covered. Thanks!
