Mercy Hill Church Hosted 668 Kids for Superhero-themed VBS
GREENSBORO, NC, June 27, 2018 — 668 kids and over 400 volunteers gathered at Mercy Hill Church last week for a four-day, superhero-themed adventure.
Hundreds of families from the Triad attended “Kids Week” from June 18-21.
The church’s “Kids Week” was for preschool and elementary students, and the kids stepped into their very own comic book world where they followed the story of four superheroes and one slimy villain. The kids learned about different character traits of heroes and ultimately, that Jesus is the greatest hero the world has ever known. Over 400 volunteers from the church
and the community came together to pull off this incredible week through leading games and crafts, teaching, and leading teams of young heroes around each of Mercy Hill’s three campuses.
“My favorite part about Kids Week was seeing the students that weren’t worshiping on Monday fully enthralled, jumping up and down, and praising God on Thursday because someone was modeling what that looks like,” said Neeko Williams, Mercy Hill staff member. “The children were just praising God, and it was awesome!”
In addition to learning about Jesus, Kids Week provided children with the opportunity to connect with their peers and truly build community at a young age. The Mercy Hill Church staff hopes that many new families will attend Mercy Hill and plug their kids into the Kids Ministry as a result of this action-packed, “super” fun week.
