LEXINGTON, N.C.—Higher Ground Baptist Church added to the excitement of Giddyup Junction: Taking God’s Love to New Frontiers by going dark.
Nighttime in the city can’t compare to a starlit night on the prairie. Using fluorescent paint and fabrics, glow-in-the dark stars, light strips, and black lights in the ceiling, the VBS team transformed the auditorium into a star-studded night in Giddyup Junction.
But all was not silent. All was not peaceful. In the dark, Giddyup Junction came alive with energy. Sheriff Sam and Giddyup Junction’s faithful deputy, Charlie the Horse, confronted The Kid, who—they learned—had been transformed by God’s love. Rather than using puppets, adults performed the puppet scripts, bringing all the characters to life.
So how can you add to the excitement of Big Fish Bay next summer? Host at least one Evening on the Bay, or use the black lights for every visit to The Marina. And if Levi, the giant mysterious fish who lives in the bay, happens to swim by, even better!
