Crocodile Dock in Auburn City

October 01, 2009 | Timothy Kosaka

Crocodile Dock was the theme of Auburn City Church's Vacation Bible School organized by Linda Burman and assisted by more than 30 dedicated volunteers. Church member's children and 23 neighborhood children gathered to enjoy the fun-filled activities each evening, July 26-30. At the Sing and Play Swamp Stomp, the children learned many new songs as they praised God. The Bible Bayou taught them about how God took care of Moses and the Israelites through hard times — and how Jesus died and rose again; and the lessons were further reinforced as they proceeded to the Snack Shack and Gator Games. The children made beautiful crafts to take home at the Crawfish Craft and Mission. The theme song "I Will Not be Afraid" taught them that they have nothing to fear because God is always with them. Each evening, children also took home in their hearts God's promise through the memory verse that they learned, and the children left not only with new friends, but also with a better understanding of Jesus, their powerful Savior.
