FBC Alabaster sees 34 decisions made during VBS

For April Brand, Vacation Bible School (VBS) week has a lot of great moments. But one of them definitely stands out.

“We had a child come who had not attended church, and when our pastor gave the gospel presentation, this child made a decision,” said Brand, who coordinated VBS this year for First Baptist Church, Alabaster. “It was the highlight of my week. It was a reminder that we can’t stop asking the unchurched to come to church. It only takes one time for them to hear the gospel and maybe respond.”

The child who accepted Christ was one of 34 who made a decision that week.

The week “went great,” Brand said. “It was fantastic.”

The church did the LifeWay VBS theme Game On, which encourages children to “realize God has given them His ultimate playbook.” Their total enrollment was nearly 600.

“Our volunteers did an incredible job,” said Jared Cornutt, minister of students.

The children who attended also gave more than $1,700 to the missions offering collected during the week, he said. (Grace Thornton)
