A half-size model of the Old Testament Tabernacle will be highly visible for this year’s Vacation Bible School at the Pagosa Springs Church of Christ.
At half size, the tabernacle is 7 1/2 feet tall and wide and 22 1/2 feet long (based on a cubit being 18 inches long). The Tabernacle is surrounded by a white fence and has half-size replicas of the pieces of furniture. In the past, it has been set up and used at over 18 camps and vacation Bible schools.
This year’s theme will be “Camping With God” and stories will center around Moses and the Old Testament Tabernacle. Children attending will be actively engaged in the stories and Bible study as well as walking through the Tabernacle. The youth group from Woodward, Okla., will return to help the stories come to life with acting, puppets, games, quizzes, songs and crafts. Refreshments will be served daily.
On Wednesday evening, the children put on a program demonstrating the things they have learned in VBS. At the end of the program there will also be an opportunity to learn about and tour the tabernacle, to visit the children’s class rooms, and meet their teachers. Vacation Bible School concludes on Friday with a hot dog picnic. Parents, family, and friends are invited to those activities as well as being encouraged to visit the daily classes at anytime.
The Vacation Bible School will be held July 20-24 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at the church building located at 377 Lewis St. Transportation to VBS is provided in busses and vans.
