Prairie Chapel UMC presents “ Passport to Peru ” VBS

By Jen Jones
WARSAW - The excited squeals of children could be heard throughout the church and yard as 65-70 kids gathered at Prairie Chapel United Methodist Church to enjoy “ Passport to Peru ” the church ’ s annual Vacation Bible School . From June 19 – 23 , about 25 volunteers worked hard to make sure all of the children had fun and learned about Jesus .
Edie Harris and Ashley Thomas are co-leaders of the VBS . “ We average about 65 children per night ,” said Harris . “ The numbers change each day , with kids having ball games or vacations . We welcome all children . I got a few calls from parents with special needs children and we want them to come , too .” Harris also said that they have four teenagers who are helping during the week , too . “ They seem to have as much fun as the little ones .”
“ Passport to Peru – Discovering God ’ s Good Gifts ” has five parts . All of the children are split into groups and spend about 35 minutes every evening at each section . Bible study , Kid Vid ( Videos of children who live in Peru ), crafts , games and a light supper keep the children entertained for the 2 ½ hours they attend VBS . “ Because of the time of our VBS , instead of just a snack , we serve a light supper that kids enjoy each night , like hot dogs and chicken nuggets ,” said Harris . “ On Friday , we have pizza and the children each decorate a cookie for their dessert .”
Thomas feels that VBS is important for children . “ It continues the education for children who attend church regularly and introduces Jesus and God to those who don ’ t in a fun way . It ’ s easier for kids to remember things when it ’ s fun to learn .” This is Thomas ’ third year as a co-leader . When asked why she started volunteering for VBS , she said , “ I felt a calling . I am pretty crafty and I have a young kids . I felt it was something I needed to do and it ’ s been so much fun !”
This was the first year the church created their decorations for the church . Usually , they borrow the decorations from another church ( this is common in our area ) but this year , their chosen theme was not one another church was doing . “ We started planning in February . It ’ s a lot of hard work , but the whole church is decorated with the theme and the kids love it .”
Luanne West , pastor at Warsaw UMC , loves VBS . She was teaching the “ Kid- Vid ” part of the evening and said she was learning as much as the children about Peru and the people who live there . “ VBS reaches out to children who don ’ t get to church and they all love coming . They have fun and learn so much about Jesus .” West has two granddaughters attending the VBS . One of them , Lillian , is 12 and she said the best part of VBS is being with her friends . Paige , 13 , agreed with her friend and added that the games were always fun , too . Richie , 11 , said everything they have is awesome .
Passport to Peru will conclude with a special service on Sunday morning , June 25 . The children will sing the songs they learned during the week and be invited to tell the congregation about something special they learned . The congregation can sing along and ice cream sundaes will be served after church .
