Sum­mer pro­gram themed ‘Su­per God! Su­per Me! Su­per Pos­si­bil­i­ties!’

The Progress-Index Weekend - - RELIGION -

PETERS­BURG — Metropoli­tan Bap­tist Church, 1021 Halifax St., re­cently held Va­ca­tion Bi­ble School at the church. More than 150 stu­dents, staff and other vol­un­teers par­tic­i­pated in Bi­ble stud­ies, crafts and Per­form­ing Chris­tian Arts ac­tiv­i­ties, based upon Abing­don Press’ Sum­mer VBS Pro­gram, “Su­per God! Su­per Me! Su­per Pos­si­bil­i­ties!

Su­per he­roes in the per­son­al­i­ties of “POWER MAN” and SU­PER WOMAN” were sur­prise vis­i­tors through­out the week, de­light­ing stu­dents of all ages; en­cour­ag­ing their at­ten­dance and re­in­forc­ing the week’s pri­mary Scrip­ture found in (1 John 4:4) - “The God in each of us is greater than he who is in the world”. Stu­dents came away with the idea that there is a su­per hero in­side each of them in the per­son­age of Je­sus Christ, who em­pow­ers them for all things good.

Va­ca­tion Bi­ble School classes were avail­able for stu­dents from prekinder­garten through adult.
