Following the Footsteps

Following the Footsteps

We wanted to include Old Testament saints in our Bible School, and it seemed obvious we would want to talk about following their example. That sounded hard to decorate for until we realised we could use footprints. The lessons cover trusting and obeying God, studying and obeying his word, salvation, prayer, and Christian service.
This theme is complete.

You guys are AWESOME! Thank you so much. We have a very small church and funds have been very low and we were not sure how we where going to afford a VBS program this year. God answered our prayers and directed us to your blog. The material is easy, Bible oriented and fun.

Thank you so much! May God continue to bless you.
