Through a partnership with Marsh Harbour Gospel Chapel and Newton Baptist Church, which is based in Alabama, a Vacation Bible School was held from July 16-20 at Grace Gym. The VBS took on an Incrediworld Amazement Park theme where children experienced “a thrill ride through God’s Creation.”
Kerry Brackett and Alyssa Johnson of Newton Baptist Church’s mission team were among 18 other members, and they expressed that it is their first time coming to The Bahamas. Although the Newton mission team planned to depart on July 19, members from Marsh Harbour Gospel Chapel continued the VBS until that Friday.
Brackett said the approximately 70 children in attendance were engaged in recreation, teaching and music activities, and arts and crafts. It was offered to children aged five to 12 years old.
“There was a Well Zone where the children learned about the Bible and God. They learned a Bible verse for each day and one for the whole week,” she explained.
The Bible verses focused on God’s creation of the earth in the Book of Genesis along with select passages of Scripture found throughout the Bible. The VBS concluded with an IncrediWorld Parent Night, which was held on July 19.
