"We will sing, we will shout, tell the news of His salvation."
(lyrics from VBS 2014 Music Book)
This is exactly what First Baptist Church of Mt. Vernon, TX is doing with their time leading up to this year's VBS. They're uncovering the truth of Jesus Christ and preparing to share the evidence with their community! Each year, FBC performs a seamlessly choreographed, beautifully acted, winsome musical to go along with VBS. Laughter and warm hearts are a tradition as a packed house watches rambunctious, fun-loving kids sing about hope in Christ.
FBC is using LifeWay's VBS 2014 Music Book as a guide for the drama, but with over 75 kids wanting stage-time, they adapted the play to include more speaking roles. They transformed the 7 speaking parts into 35 roles! Furthermore, FBC added 22 special dancers to perform choreographed dances that were not included in the original song choreography. Every child who auditions for a role receives one.
Check out the pictures below to see the glee on many little faces as they prepare to sing the news of His salvation.
