A Gardner church hosting winter VBS

December 10, 2019 - 4:00 am

Gardner, KS - Vacation Bible School is usually reserved for the summer months, but at Grace Baptist Church they're serving it up cold with a Christmas version of VBS. Children's Minister Morgan Walterman came up with the idea last year to help teach kids the meaning behind the holiday. 

"We get excited about Christmas and wanting presents, but we're trying to really focus on what's the true meaning of Christmas this year," explains Walterman.

They communicate this through, games, crafts, music, and bible study. Walterman says the wish lists tend to get smaller and the children's desire to serve gets just a little bit bigger, but there's another perk that parents like. 

"They also like it because it's so close to Christmas they can do some last minute shopping if they need it," says Walterman. 

The event runs from December 18th through the 21st from 6:00 to 7:30 in the evening. You can register online and the event is free to the community.
