There are few things that compare to the joy of doing what you love for a great cause. Which is why I am so blessed to be able to capture moments for the church my husband and I attend. We love our church family dearly and I am so happy to be able to give back – even a small amount – to the work that they do for the community. This past weekend our AH-MAY-ZING Children’s Pastor and his wife held a VBS and it was out-of-this-world! My brood loved every bit of it and I was thrilled to be able to capture the big Sunday finale. Get ready for an intergalactic journey through space as you look through these pictures! (Have I hit the overkill point with space adjectives yet? lol)
The church was transformed into a space-themed stellar set. Check out this shuttle! They actually had it producing smoke – it was awesome!
Anyone else remember when computers had CPUs? They put those old ones to great use in the set up! Am I dating myself?
Singing and dancing fun was held by all. My kids are still singing “Jesus, You’re My Superhero!”
There were space shuttle crashes courtesy of Cletus and Clovis who didn’t listen to their robot.
Here’s Reggie the Robot. He just wanted to help! My kids LOVED him!
All of our kids had a blast!
Here’s take two at a shuttle build. I don’t think Cletus and Clovis ever did make their journey to the sun, though.
And of course some slap-stick comedy complete with astro-nut knock downs entertained the masses.
Most importantly, our kids and families had an opportunity to meet Jesus and pray at the altar. There is something so precious about that!
This is a sweet family who has recently started to come regularly. I run into them frequently while making groceries and they are just the sweetest people!
Here’s my own little princess praying. She prayed the whole time and I just adore her little spirit!
Here’s our Children’s Pastor and our Pastor sporting their Blast Off shirts.
And these are our wonderful volunteers who gave of their time, talent, and energy to put on such a special production!
Last but not least, these three are the fire power behind the Blast Off. We appreciate all that they do for our little ones!
Here’s the highlight reel:
