Young believers respond to a message shared at Vacation Bible School

In May, 94 children participated in Vacation Bible School held at Bethany BIC (Thomas, Okla.). Through a drama and activities, the children were invited to consider their struggles and heard the story of Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection. “The kids really got it,” says James Rainwater, pastor of Bethany BIC. “Moved with conviction, they came up and surrounded the cross and just had a moment of thanksgiving and commitment.” In the following weeks, five of the children took the step of being baptized.
