It’s that time of year for all of us children’s ministry folks!  Summer is just around the corner, and I’m sure that many of you are preparing for your church’s Vacation Bible School (or equivalent, thereof).

This year’s SVCC Vacation Bible Adventure (VBA) is called “Soul Wars.”  We’ll be focusing on stories relating to extreme measures of faith in Bible.  The phenomenon that is Star Wars will be our connecting element for this – which is super exciting!

Two weeks ago, we began practices for our Song Crew – which is the team that leads our VBA kids in worship during the week.  In the past, I’ve focused a lot on getting the kids to know the motions and the words to the songs.  This year, I’ve taken on a different approach.  I really want to see these team grow in their worship of God, and in their service for others – in addition to knowing the truth behind the songs.


With that in mind, we begin each rehearsal with a devotional.  It’s great to dig into the Word together, share our thoughts, and determine the appropriate application.  Also, team members must serve in children’s ministry (Nursery, Pre-K, or Elementary) at least two weekends a month.  This will hopefully help them develop that desire to serve, and help them see what they’ll be looking forward to!


It’s been fun working with all 29 of these cray-cray kids!  Looking forward to what God will do in and through them this year.  Check out a bit of a preview of what’s to come with one of our new VBA songs!

Have a great day….and may the faith be with you!
