Everywhere Fun Fair VBS at Zion UCC

Have you ever wanted to visit another country without leaving Troy? Well, Everywhere Fun Fair VBS is your chance.

At this exciting, kid-friendly global fair, your children will experience the love of Jesus, meet welcoming neighbors from the Bible and explore the everyday life of neighbors from Japan, the United Kingdom, Australia and Mexico. Kids will learn that God’s love welcomes everyone, as they understand how to love and serve God and be a neighbor to the world.

They will begin with an Old Testament story of welcoming and helpful neighbors. Then continue with three New Testament stories that explore various characteristics of the love of Jesus through his life, death, resurrection, and the new life they have has Christians. Throughout VBS, the children discover how to love their neighbors near and far, in their own communities and around the world.

As a means of loving their neighbors in their own community, we will be collecting food for the food pantry. To love their neighbors around the world, their offering will go to the Heifer Project to purchase an animal of the “travelers” choosing for an underdeveloped country.

The program communicates God’s welcoming love. Children and volunteers will leave VBS with the understanding and calling to love God and neighbors as they love themselves, and to follow the example of Jesus, treating others, as they would like to be treated.

Everywhere Fun Fair VBS is for students Pre K through 5th grade. Your tweens and teens are also welcome as Friendtastic Faith Guides.
