Jungle Safari VBS

Aaaaahhhh.......aaahhhh, aahhhhh, ahhhhh......aaahhhhhhh! (That's my best Tarzan yell, in case you were wondering.) Jungle Safari VBS at Northside Christian Church was wild this year. The stage seemed to be overgrown with vines, trees, and colorful flowers. We even had an active volcano that erupted on the last night! The stage could even glow in the dark through the use of special paint and black light. The Bible characters are based on the curriculum, but the drama scripts are original. The characters searched all week for a hidden treasure, encountering the symbol for each night as they looked. 

Construction materials: The vines, leaves, rocks and volcano were all made of paper. The bushes and "rock tower" were constructed from styrofoam.

 The Grand Finale of the week was the eruption of the volcano and an explosion of confetti cannons!

Old World Style Wedding

On a beautiful October day Rachel and Joshua were married in an elegant ceremony with Old World style decor. Bird cages, Italian urns filled with Mediterranean greenery, gold spray-painted books, candlelight, stately columns and black iron gates turned a multi-purpose room/gym into something entirely different.
