SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - That's a pretty bold claim. This is VBS - Vacation Bible School; what could possibly happen in one week of summer that would make it better than all the other weeks? Better than a week at the beach? Better than a week in D.C. checking out the history of the nation; gazing with amazement on the monuments to our heroes?
Here's what will make it the best week of the summer: Truth. Meaningful truth. These days, we get bombarded with claims of truth from all sides. How can anyone know who or what to believe? It's confusing. Confusing for us, confusing for our kids.
At Cedarcroft Bible Chapel, we embrace truth as defined in the Bible; a book written thousands of years ago, yet,still relevant for today. Given the chaos and carnage in the headlines, our kids need to know that there is something - Someone - to turn to for help and hope. And Truth. Not just our kids. All of us.
So we're going to do our level best to make this the best week of summer. Truth, presented in fun and interesting ways - songs, games, crafts, and stories.
This year, the central message of the week is 'God is with me, wherever I go'. That's something our kids need to know. That's something we all need to know.
