Flashback Friday Prompt

Since my church is in the middle of VBS this week, it has brought back some memories of my childhood experiences with VBS and other church-related activities.
Did your family attend church when you were growing up? What are your earliest memories of church? Did you attend VBS (Vacation Bible School) when you were young? Sunday School? Other church activities? Was faith a Sunday-only thing or did it impact your life and the things you did? If faith and church were not a part of your growing-up years, when and how did you begin and what drew you to God?

A couple of cautionary notes. . . As far as I can tell, the overwhelming majority of my blog readers are Christian believers. This flashback is not intended to bring judgment on anyone's past or present experiences, nor is it meant to prompt theological debates or discussions of denominational differences.

Post your memories tomorrow and come back here to link up!

This is a good prompt. There are lots of churches holding VBS right now. I like your disclaimer. ;) Thanks for hosting this. Blessings, SusanD

Church and faith was Sunday only in our house, but not at my Grandparents'. I looked forward to spending time in the summer with them and I would get to go to their VBS at their little country church. Very fond memories for me!

Well, it ain't *real* VBS if there's no Kool-Aid. I'm jus' sayin'.

Loved your post!! This brought back so many memories (VBS. GAs, and those precious little white offering envelopes!).
