Oakwood Invites Families To Wilderness Escape VBS

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Oakwood Baptist Church, 115 Oakwood Street in Chickamauga, presents a summer family event called “Wilderness Escape: Where God Guides and Provides”, June 8-12 from 6:15 - 8:30 p.m. nightly.

Families step back in time at Wilderness Escape, exploring some of the adventures faced by Moses and the Israelites. Kids and adults participate at the Israelite Camp, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Moses, and collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s Word.

Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration—a time of worship that gets everyone involved.

Also, kids and adults at Wilderness Escape VBS will join nearly a million participants reaching out to needy kids through a hands-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which families will send photos and personalized Bible coloring books to children in India.
