Vacation Bible Xperience
Albuquerque Churches Host Summer Youth Programs
Albuquerque, N. Mex. » Summer is a great time for children to recharge, relax and learn more about Jesus. This summer, several churches in the Albuquerque area took the opportunity to reach out to kids in their communities and teach them about God in a fun and exciting way through Vacation Bible School (VBS), now called VBX, for the unique eXperience it provides. Rio Rancho, Corrales, North Valley, and La Roca churches hosted VBX programs.
The Rio Rancho church became a secret service agency and every night, children turned into God’s secret agents on earth and learned to serve those around them including their neighbors, parents, church, and community.
Corrales was next to host a fun adventure-themed program called “Passport to Peru,” with 34 children attending. North Valley and La Roca then hosted their VBX programs and were happy to pair them with a two-week evangelistic campaign. As parents discovered new Bible truths, up to 45 kids at North Valley embarked on a cowboy-themed adventure called “Cactusville.” They learned that they were called to be different, to be faithful, to give, to serve and to forgive. At La Roca, the VBX meetings invited kids to “Come Meet Jesus” while they journeyed through the Bible. From Genesis all the way to the Gospels, kids learned more about Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross.
