Block Party for Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School begins at Westmoreland Baptist Church on Sunday, July 27th and runs each night from 6:00 - 8:30 PM through Friday, August 1st.

Today was our Block Party and Pre-registration was held on Saturday from 11:00 AM till 3:00PM in the church parking lot. The kids and adults who attended had a great time with inflatables, face painting, various games, and refreshments. The weather cooperated with no rain and we all got plenty of sun!

Nearly 50 children pre-registered today and we expect a good number more to show up on the first night of VBS.

Face painting and the inflatables were big hits with the kids!

Here is a view of some of the early arrivers - while skies were still overcast. It cleared up later and brother, was it hot!

The sanctuary is decorated and ready for VBS to kick off on Sunday evening.
The theme this year is "Outrigger Island: Living God's Unshakeable Truth". The key verse for the week is Psalm 86:11 "Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name." (NKJV)

Classes will be provided for kids from age three through those who just completed the 6th grade. There will be Bible Lessons, refreshments, mission lessons,
crafts, recreation activities, and lively music, all with the "Island theme". If you live in the Huntington, Ashland, Ironton area, it's not too late to get your kids enrolled. They just need to show up on Sunday evening at 6:00 PM. They'll have a great time, make new friends, and learn more about Jesus!
