Day 3 Opening Assembly
Welcome everyone to another great day of VBS! Let's start with a fun song from yesterday, and then I want to show you what I have in my wilderness backpack.
Let's see how well you can remember the actions.
Come Holy Spirit, thank you for bringing us here to grow in our faith. Help us learn more about the sacraments today, especially the Sacrament of Confirmation. Bless our day together. Amen.
I wonder what’s in my backpack today. Pull out a compass.
Who can tell me what I’m holding? Compass.
A compass is a very important item that can keep you from getting lost, and help guide and lead you to your destination.
Which sacrament does a compass make you think of? Confirmation.
In the sacrament of Confirmation, we receive an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our guide and leads us on the right path.
In our Bible Verse today, Jesus telling the apostles that they are going to get a helper, the Holy Spirit. “I will ask the Father, he will give you another helper, who will stay with you forever.” John 14:16-17
DISMISSAL TO STATIONS
Dismiss the children to their groups. The group leaders will lead the children to their appropriate station. Play the VBS music as kids are leaving.
