Vacation Bible School in Austin, Texas:

For the past three years, Austin Apostolic Christian Church has been going out to a small neighborhood called Stoney Point and holding Vacation Bible School for the local children. This is not your typical VBS. It is held outdoors under a large tent and it is not unusual to have a neighborhood dog wander through. Parents often accompany their children and may stick around to do crafts or just sit and talk while their children participate. The neighborhood is Spanish-speaking but the vast majority of children speak English fluently. Although it may be a little out of the ordinary, God is moving in his usual dynamic way in Stoney Point. This is a great opportunity, if you feel led, to be blessed to experience His heart for the children and their families and share the gospel. Whether it is making crafts, singing songs, reading a Bible story, playing games, or running a grill, there is something for everyone to do. The VBS will be held June 6-10. If you could be there for Sunday church on June 5, you would be able to enjoy fellowship with the small church in Austin. Accommodations are available for volunteers.
