From June 22 to June 24, 2023, the International Assembly of God in Warren, Michigan, hosted a vibrant and educational Vacation Bible School (VBS) under the theme of “Keepers of the Kingdom,” which revolved around the existence of two kingdoms – the Good Kingdom and the Bad Kingdom.

This three-day event brought together 62 children who   explored the concepts of good and evil, and their roles as citizens of the Kingdom.

The senior pastor of the church Pastor Charles Chandy, , expressed his delight in witnessing the children’s enthusiasm and engagement throughout the event, a press release from the organization said.

“We sought to create an environment where children not only learn about their faith but also have a great time doing so. The members of the church volunteered their time, energy, and finances to make this VBS a success under the leadership of Joshua & Joylin, the VBS directors,” the press release said.

A range of engaging activities and games were part of the program and kept children engaged in the learning process. Classic games such as “Capture the Flag” and “Dodgeball” were modified to align with the theme, allowing the participants to immerse themselves in friendly competition while reinforcing the concepts they were taught.

Craft activities provided an opportunity for creativity and self-expression as the children decorated their own treasure chests. Science experiments gave an opportunity to witness results of the activity.

“The hands-on experiences not only sparked their curiosity but also provided practical applications of the lessons learned,” organizers said.

An educational puppet show that used humor as a learning tool, featured  Captain Cool and King Kong who were joined by their friends Abby & Gabby. The kids also had an opportunity to sing and dance to to music, and enjoy some great meals during the VBS, including treats at the marketplace at the end of the day to take home.

Parents expressed their appreciation for the VBS, noting the positive impact it had on their children. “The International Assembly of God truly knows how to make learning about faith enjoyable. My child couldn’t stop talking about the games, crafts, and experiments. This VBS has left a lasting impression on him,” one parent was quoted saying in the press release.
