I (Melissa) volunteered at our church’s VBS last week as the Bible teacher [How did I qualify for this job? I think it has everything to do with the fact that I’m married to a seminarian]. Uptown organizes it to reach out to as many unchurched kids as possible, so instead of one giant VBS, we have three smaller sessions at three different homes. Our “smaller” session at the Mendenhall home consisted of 72 kids, aged 3-8(?). We had this mad scientist/laboratory theme that was fantastic and really taught the kids about Jesus.
