Theme & Verse:

| Counting on God |

“I am counting on the Lordyes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.”
– Psalm 130:5


We make our own curriculum each year for VBS. This year, we chose the following stories to talk about Counting on God.

Noah from Genesis 6-8

12 Tribes of Israel from Genesis 35:11 and Numbers 23:10

10 Commandments from Exodus 20

Feeding the 5,000 from Matthew 14:14

Infinity and beyond! An emphasis on Hebrews 11:12

We also provide art, games, snacks, and singing.

Mission Focus:

Each day, we collect an offering for our mission focus of the year. This year, we’re collecting our offering for United Methodist Committee on Relief’s (UMCOR) Flood Buckets effort. UMCOR helps victims of natural and man-made disasters all over the world. The flood buckets are filled with necessary supplies to begin the cleaning process after a flood. Many of us in Ashland have seen flooding firsthand this season and are especially eager to help others in their similar time of need.
