Christian Cooks Rock!I forgot to share in my previous post that our church, First Baptist Church of Belle, MO, has an evening Vacation Bible School (VBS) program. Each day of VBS starts with supper at 5:30 P.M.. Day Two started off with a great meal of BBQ chicken, cheese fries, grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, beverages, and DESSERT. (Pardon the capital letters, but dessert really does make me wanna shout.) The dessert menu featured home baked, red velvet cupcakes, peanut butter cup tarts, and fruit cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Seriously, Christian cooks rock! Our VBS attendees and their parents get to eat with us every day. It is a joy to see a crowed dining room full of families eating all they want!
YouTube, a Bible ResourceTechnical difficulties resulted in bible classes starting about twenty-five minutes early. However, I welcomed the chance to include more of the Day One activities and complete the Day Two bible lesson. After I returned home from Day One, I went online to YouTube to find a supplemental, attention catching video to open my Day Two lesson.
A quick search for "Apostle Paul" yielded a three part set of animated videos that covered Paul's life from the stoning of Stephen to his imprisonment in Rome. So I downloaded them on my tablet with an Android app, then put the SD card into my laptop so I could play the videos (the laptop screen is about 16" X 8.5") to reinforce the Day One and Day Two lessons. Kids and cartoons go together like peanut butter and jelly.
The Adventures of Flat PaulFlat Paul made an appearance today and traveled to music, recreation, and crafts with the class. I was only too happy to snap one or two pictures of posing preteens happily clustered around Flat Paul at each activity. Even the adults, joined in the fun.
