Bible Drill Trip

06.28.18 | Children

    The weekend of May 18-20 was so highly anticipated in our home this year that our children created a 'Countdown to San Antonio' chart. Every night before bed the last number was crossed off, and our daughter announced how many days until we would hit the road. The destination? The Staybridge Inn Suites NW and Six Flags Amusement Park. Although that weekend had been previously filled with commitments and travel plans, our girls skipped rehearsals and we adjusted Aaron's travel plans so that our family could attend this awesome weekend with 8-10 other UBC families. We had such a wonderful time last year that when we were offered the opportunity to attend again this year, we had to make it work!

    This celebratory weekend provides families time to enjoy a weekend together with other Bible Drill families. All kids who participated in the Church Bible Drill in March were invited to this special weekend with a free ticket to Six Flags Over Texas in San Antonio. The support of family is vital for Drilling participants. This weekend recognizes the hard work put into Drilling and offers families the opportunity to celebrate together. The organized weekend plans culminate in a shared meal at a local restaurant provided by UBC. Kudos to Karen for all of the extra planning that went into this year’s trip and the stellar deal on the spacious, clean accommodations!

    The highly anticipated weekend did not disappoint – we had a wonderful time of family fun and fellowship with other UBC families we otherwise would not have spent a weekend away with. Thank you, UBC, for loving kids and ministering to families in creative ways!
