Molalla Hosts Bible Buckaroo VBS

September 01, 2012 | Helen Shreve

The Molalla Church hosted the Bible Buckaroo Vacation Bible School in June. Cindy Hepler, Molalla VBS director, chose this theme again after its popularity four years ago. This year 47 children attended, most of them from the community.

During the VBS everyone wore cowboy hats and western scarves, which the children got to take home at the end. They made hat bands, horse name tags and bookmarks, and they painted wooden crosses. Each day they worked on a poster about what they learned or the activity they liked the best. The games revolved around a daily story or theme and included putting words together for that day's Bible verse.

The children presented a small program for their parents on the last day and another for the church service that Sabbath. The VBS brought together many church members, young and old, to help in this wonderful outreach.
