This is going to be a fun year at Vacation Bible School! Here's a bit of an introduction to this year's VBS:

Have you ever felt trapped? Not sure where to turn? Does life ever seem like a maze filled with twists and turns that don’t really seem to lead anywhere? God directs us toward His Son, Jesus—HE is the Way, the Truth, and the Life! This year’s VBS is all about escaping the tricks and traps of this life that distract us from God! “Escape rooms” are popping up all over the country these days as an entertaining activity for people who like to solve puzzles.


This year, Holy Cross’ VBS will be all about the GREAT ESCAPE—focusing on God’s deliverance from some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable. Looking back through the pages of Scripture, we see God, time and time again, rescuing His people from certain peril. Joseph, who was mistreated by his brothers, lied about by others, forgotten in jail—was ultimately rescued by God! In the book of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (later Daniel himself) were in trouble. They had remained faithful to God and the king was angry. It seemed as if all hope were lost. But again, God rescued them from a fiery furnace and a pit full of lions! In the book of Acts, there were several times when the apostles were put in prison for preaching about Jesus’ resurrection and that He is the Son of God. You guessed it! Just like before, God rescued His people and sent them back into the streets to preach the Gospel!


This is going to be a unique VBS, and we’re working hard to make sure it’s a memorable time for the kids who join us! Let’s get the word out! Invite your friends! Volunteer to lead a group! Let’s make sure that  the GREAT ESCAPE that God grants through Jesus’ death and resurrection is our joy forever!
