PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – Another summer and it is time for another week of Vacation Bible School at The Bible Baptist Church on Arch Road, Sucker Garden. Bible Baptist Church, for more than 40 years, parents and
children have been looking forward for the week of Vacation Bible School. We are one of the few churches that still offers this program for FREE. The entire event is free and there is NO charge to register.
Vacation Bible School is always a highlight of our church, it helps us serve and minister to the children of St. Maarten. Not only is it a time for us to enjoy the children of our church, but also to reach out to other children and their families in our community.
Vacation Bible School this year is from Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19 and it is themed “Shipwrecked – Rescued by Jesus”. During this time, the students get to experience and learn about God in a very creative way.
This year, we’ll use examples of Jesus and cause those attending to experience the impact Jesus had on the thousands of lives He touched, teach them how to overcome everyday life situations, and try to inspire spiritual growth by faith through dealing with situations concerning obedience, harmony, trust and submission to God.
Then we spend time in creative expression: The students express their love for God and values taught through song, dance, games, and mime. Exciting new songs are taught, God-inspired choreographers teach movements that speak to today’s child, and during craft time the students get a hands-on opportunity to create. Students and food go hand in hand for this reason a tasty snack is served everyday.
We are privileged and praise God for trained and qualified counselors and volunteers. They are able to deal with most of the challenges that our students face today. Yes, even at Vacation Bible School children who deal with a lot issues attend. Our trained workers know this and are prepared to handle every situation.
Therefore, with open arms and heart we invite all the youths of St. Maarten, ages 4 – 16 to join us this year at the Bible Baptist Church on Arch Road, Sucker Garden. It all starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m..
To close off the week we showcase to parents and friends what the students learned. The “Shipwrecked – Rescued by Jesus” showcasing will take place on Friday, July 19 at 7:00 p.m. at The Bible Baptist Church, on Arch Road Sucker Garden. You will not want to miss it. The students recite, sing, dance, and act. It will be a grand time.
