They say on average, 40% of people accept Jesus Christ as their Savior by the age of 12 years old. For some of you, that’s a good chunk of your neighborhood. 

So when you hear that distinct sound of laughter and squeaky bike wheels pushing daylight a little longer each night, think of how a life can forever be changed by the power of Jesus Christ by just taking few steps from the sidewalk into your backyard.

For one week during the summer you can be the voice of Truth to children in your neighborhood and community.  The ministry of Backyard Vacation Bible School is that ALL children will know and that God may be glorified.  What a great purpose!

Backyard VBS Testimonial:
From Backyard VBS Director and Bellevue Outreach Host Home and Bible teacher, this text was sent to her:

So "K" just got the assignment to create a “me bag” for her kindergarten class.  Without hesitation the first thing she asked to put in was her VBS treasure box.  She wants to share now with her class about being a child of God.  WOW!!!! And I keep forgetting to tell you that in everyone of "C"s summer journal entries there is a line about “I love God” or ”I am God’s treasure and perfect as I am”.  Seriously, there is no greater gift.  Their Sunday School and week at camp doesn’t come close to the experience with your program.  Thank you for that. Please tell others at Antioch the power of His work.  I feel so very blessed by you , your family and your church.  Thank You!
