Sonrise National Park
Approximately 100 children ages 4 to 11 gathered to learn the truth about Jesus amidst a forest scene at North Cities’ annual Vacation Bible School. This year’s VBS was titled SonRise National Park, and featured Bible stories that told of God’s true peace, true love, true power, and true hope.
These truths from the Word of God were reinforced by action worship songs, crafts, outdoor games, and plenty of fun. Smiles were everywhere as the children learned survival skills for life and found the ultimate tour guide through life’s park: The Holy Spirit.
Each evening was blessed by the ministry of North Cities’ SWAT team (Students Walking After Truth). This group of teenagers and young adults led the children in worship, ministered the Word, and prayed with them in the altar service. The week culminated in a special Children’s Crusade featuring action songs, puppet shows, skits, and games teaching Godly character.
Nine children received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and many more were renewed and strengthened in their faith in Jesus Christ. We are so thankful for what God is doing in the lives of the children of North Cities!
