Power Lab -- Night 4

Jesus gives us the power…AHA! I’ve heard stories about people walking on water and discovered miracles as blind men see. But the thing I remember from VBS is that Jesus gives us the power!

Jesus gave us the power to invite friends to VBS. Friends poured in through the doors! We may see Bob and Karl dress like girls yet. Jesus gave us the power to bring money and books for Operation Kid to Kid. We saw books and money come being piled up! Looks like we might just reach our goal there too.

We’ve discovered some amazing things at VBS…and had a ton of fun. But the best thing I’ve discovered is where my power comes from – Jesus.

Power Lab -- Night 3

Hello from the lab!

Wow! Power Lab was pumped up tonight!! God was definitely in the House!! The Horizons' Kids Helping Kids project is amazing...don't forget to bring your offering and books tomorrow!! I have some great science books I'm going to bring!

I hope everyone enjoyed all of our experiments! I'm learning SO much about all of Jesus' powers!! Jesus gives us the power to be thankful, the power to be helpful and tonight we learned about the power to be brave ~ which is especially important when dealing with mice!! EEK!!

I can't wait to see everyone again tomorrow and learn more about Jesus' other miraculous powers! And I hope everyone brings a friend or two so we can reach 425! I really want to see Bob and Karl dress up as that's an experiment!!

Well I better get back to my test tubes...Harold is supposed to be watching them for me but I think I just heard a crash!!

See you all tomorrow back in the lab!!

Power Lab -- Night 2

Vacation Bible School is absolutely positively AMAZING!!!

So the first night was a little rocky but baby was tonight smooth. Bob and I are pumped with the amount of energy flowing in this years’ VBS Power Lab. Words cannot describe how excited we are to be here again this year and to see that the kids are excited to have a good time and to experience God at VBS. It was so much fun to see over 350 kids here tonight at VBS (which by the way is not yet 425). Remember that if registration reaches 425 kids this year, we will dress like girls for the closing of Vacation Bible School.

Don’t forget about Horizons’ Kids Helping Kids. This year, we are trying to collect children’s books for the Karen families that moved to Lincoln from Burma. These books will help them to learn English and better adapt to our culture. Horizons’ Kids Helping Kids is designed to give kids a chance to serve other kids in our area. This is an amazing opportunity for kids to serve and help others their same age. Well, hope to see you all tomorrow at VBS and don’t forget to keep inviting friends. I know you want to see me in a dress.

Power Lab -- Night 1

Hey there everybody, it’s Professor Beaker here at VBS Powerlab!
VBS got off to a great start tonight with over 300 kids but we still need 125 for the Bob and Karl Challenge.
Today kids learned that Jesus gives us the power to be thankful. Ah-hah! Albert Einstein (Mark Danley) visited us and showed us a super cool science experiment and kids discovered Jesus’ miraculous power in skits and made necklaces and pictures frames to remind them of this.
Kids also watched as Chadder entered a castle and wandered off trying to find a candy machine. He fell and hit a wall that led to a secret lab and angered a professor down there. Will Chadder ever find a candy machine? Will he escape the evil professor? Tune in to tomorrow’s blog to find out!
