Tok Church Conducts Quest for Truth VBS

October 01, 2007 | Butch Palmero

Shauna Lee of the Tok Church, located near the end of the Alaska Highway toward Delta Junction, believed that leading kids to search for truth was the best way to wait for the birth of her child. With the help of Texas vacationers turned Alaskans, Judy and Sam Jock, they were able to calm the chaotic kids with craft activities and by acting out Bible stories. Most exciting were the afternoon's raucous games.

Tok parents were grateful for the character-building lessons and Bible truths their children learned July 30–Aug. 3. Since daily attendance sometimes reached 19 kids, junior guides like Ashley Cuber, Luke Crawford and Heather Ueeck made recreation activities fun controlled.

Simultaneously with the Vacation Bible School, Adventist couples in the church learned more about increasing intimacy in their relationships. "Families are Made Forever" (a Nancy Van Pelt presentation) covered such topics as "Love, Sex and a Lasting Relationship;" "His and Her Needs;" "Why Can't my Partner Understand What I Say?;" and "Seven Stupid Mistakes Parents Make."
