MASON CITY, Iowa—Faith Baptist Church welcomed entire families to its church for Vacation Bible School this summer.

“The focus for the week was exploring the coolest book on the planet, the Bible!” says Greg Gosnell, associate pastor of youth and children’s ministries. More than 130 kids age 4 through those who have completed sixth grade attended, enjoying games, crafts, snacks, and learning all about God’s Word.

The church held its program in the evenings, from 6:00 to 8:30, on a Sunday through Thursday. To reach the students’ parents, each night at 5:30 the church offered a free dinner for all the families who attended VBS. The program concluded with a family carnival on Friday evening.
