Vacation Bible School - #1972 - Cowboy Church the Setting for Western Themed Vacation Bible School - Baptist Press

WHITNEY, Texas (BP)--Kids in everyday cowboy boots didn't ride their horses to "Saddle Ridge Ranch" in Whitney, Texas. Most came in pickup trucks or SUVs. But, regardless of their transportation, could there be a more appropriate setting than Open Range Cowboy Church in Whitney for a western-themed Vacation Bible School curriculum? The church's rural setting, barn-shaped sanctuary and rodeo arena (its version of a family life center) made it hard to tell where the decorations for Saddle Ridge Ranch VBS left off and the church's regular decor began. Cowboy Church hosted VBS July 5-9 for about 120 children from pre-K through sixth grade. While the church didn't have VBS for the youth, the teenagers served as "ranch hands" for the children. Cowboy Church children's team director Ronna Rightmer, who served as VBS director, gave last-minute instructions to the teens: "Make sure you interact with the kids at all times. Help with snack, with crafts, and help the kids that may have trouble paying attention. Be sweet to them!"  Read more......  First Baptist in Charlottesville used this curriculum this past week, two of our grandchildren participated and loved every minute, I helped out the last day in their class.  If you get an opportunity, enroll your children or grandchildren in this themed Vacation Bible School, you will be so blessed.
