VBS 2020

VBS at HOME with Vista Families

Vista has entered a ‘new’ age!  Vacation Bible School was done at home for the first time!  Our amazing youth and parents were given links to videos, crafts, and games instructions.  This new strategy relied on technology, flexibility, and parental involvement to deliver VBS directly to our family’s homes!  Each day, they opened the link to discover the day’s theme.  Day 1 – Parable of the Sower.  Day 2 – Jesus Walks on Water.   Day 3 – Jesus Chooses His Disciples.

Home deliveries of a bag filled with supplies (sponges, tape, crackers, origami paper, balloons, q-tips, straws, goldfish (the food kind), and lots of other interesting items.   Daily snacks of popsicles, granola bars, fruit snacks, more goldfish and powdered drinks were also provided for each family.  Fun puzzles, coloring sheets and word searches were also included.

We listed our VBS on Facebook and received requests from non-Vista families!   We were able to serve ALL and made this an amazing outreach program also.   Bags were delivered to families in the Tucson area and to three families in the Phoenix area.     From thinking we would not be able to host VBS this year….to a great family and outreach program.  We had 29 families and 64 children participating.  God is good.  All the time.
