It's BIBLE TIME!

I've been missing in action, but having FUN for the past week or so. My daughter and I spent most of last week decorating our classroom for this week's Neighborhood Bible Time. (similar to Vacation Bible School) She and I are teaching two classes each night... lots of work... lots of fun! My daughter designed the hut, as it goes along with her missionary story about Mary, a missionary in Africa. The kids have really enjoyed sitting inside the hut for this activity.
One night we studied King David and Mephibosheth and ended with a cupcake feast in Mephibosheth's honor. Each cupcake had a "king's ring" as decoration. Even the boys enjoyed licking the frosting off their rings and wearing their "king's rings".

We made Noah's Ark sandwiches from pita bread, peanut butter, jelly, and animal crackers. It all looked pretty "gross" to me, but most of the kids ate every bite of theirs.


And of course, we studied Zaccheus and how God turned his life around. Can you see him hiding in the tree? This is our 6th grade group. It has been a fun week, but this ol' girl is tired! One more night and then Friday is awards night... woo hoo... then it's back to work at the nursing home! I hope you guys are having a great summer!

When my kids were small I taught a class at Bible School. I about ran myself ragged. I worked all day each day, then went to teach the class, after picking up my own kids, then after I got home I had to get ready for the next night's class.

Your class looks like they are having fun and learning too. Sixth grade is a good grade to teach. They're not as sweet after that age. LOl

Looks like so much fun~and those kids will always remember it! No VBS for us, this year, as there are not kids in our community at this time:(

Love, love, LOVE the hut! What a great idea. Our VBS is just around the corner. Now I'm eager to hear our theme and get started on decorating! :D
