The Family Vacation Bible School Ministry was held on July 9-12, 5:30pm-8:30pm. The theme this year was "ROAR! Life is Wild - God is Good - All the Time!" The week was initiated by the Family VBS Kick-off Sunday on July 8, with worship services that morning and a Pre-registration Event that evening.

Each night included the following:

~ an excellent supper provided by the church;

~ Family Worship Services with fun music, pledges to the flags, puppets, and Bible memory verse recitations;

~ Bible Study Groups for all ages;

~ Recreation, Crafts, dessert refreshments, and lots of fun for everyone.


Our special guest Adult Bible teacher this year was Don Piper of Pasadena, Texas. Don Piper, author of the book, Ninety Minutes in Heavenspoke to a full house Sunday morning during our Kick-off Sunday and visited with people on Sunday night at the FVBS Kick-off Pre-registration. On Monday and Tuesday nights, he taught our Adult Class. Pastor Rick Smith completed the Adult Bible Class sessions on Wednesday and Thursday nights using Don Piper’s materials from Ninety Minutes in Heaven.


The Family VBS Ministry was a great blessing. We rejoiced in the Lord that we had 115 people enrolled in the Ministry Event during the week, including preschoolers, children, teens, and adults.


Recreation was a blast thanks to the Del Rio Uvalde Baptist Association's Celebration Station bounce houses and equipment.


Many seeds of faith in the Lord were planted in the lives and the hearts of the people all across the canyon and beyond during this week. We rejoice in the Lord that during this week our church was a light in the canyon for the Lord.


Our Family VBS Director was Kay Smith.
