Ocean Commotion Summary
On June 20 – 24, The Baptist Fellowship had its first of two VBS for the summer of 2016. The theme of the first VBS was “Ocean Commotion,” and was developed by Answers in Genesis. Forty-nine children attended and a staff of over 35 served by teaching songs, doing skits, teaching Bible lessons, preparing snacks, making crafts, doing recreation, and various other things. Nine of the staff members traveled up from Burnsville, North Carolina as part of West Burnsville Baptist Church’s continuing ministry to the Randolph area.

Day 2 – We can rely on God to help us obey Him, no matter what.
Day 3 – We can rely on God to help us trust Him with our lives.
Day 4 – We can rely on God to help us thank Him for everything.
Day 5 – We can rely on God to help us take Him seriously.
The songs were very popular among the children and the staff.
