Summer holiday has barely started for many but for the young charges who attended Rices Methodist Church Vacation Bible School it’s off to a super start.

Ranging in ages from four-years-old to 15-years-old, 21 students signed up and got exposed to the Vacation Bible School’s theme of ‘Super God’.

And using the Bible, arts and craft they have gained knowledge, unlocked new skill sets, tapped into their potential and are on their way to being better versions of themselves. ‘Super God, Super Me, Super Possibility!’ was their slogan and theme as they worked to lift Jesus higher.

First-time Director Gillian Murray took on the task and worked alongside a team of dedicated persons to make the School exciting and appealing to the registered students.

Of the 21 who started the School, 10 received their certifications today during the Sunday Church Service for their consistent attendance and participation.

Recording such numbers on her first attempt, Murray told Loop News:

“I’m heartened that their interest was held and their parents saw the importance of them attending.”

For parents of children in the church and the communities surrounding the church she added, “Going forward, I want the parents to encourage the children and continue to show them that with our Super God they can realise any possibility.”

And in terms of her hopes for the Vacation Bible School (VBS), she said, “Through this initiative, I want to help them to develop their talents and interests to their full potential. They have super possibilities!”

Reverend Arlette Waterman presented the certificates to the students who were in attendance and she charged each to go out and share the word about their Super God; “You have the responsibility to tell others.”

The School ran from July 17-21 and was an intense five-day programme filled with fun and learning.
