A small plane sat on stage at Grace Baptist Church in Karns Wednesday.  It is no accident it's in the building; it's actually being used to help spread their message of faith.

"Every year, we start thinking about what we can do that is bigger than last year. We had everything from a pirate ship, full size, to a two-story castle," said Grace Baptist youth organizer Karyn Sloas.

That plane was used for a Vacation Bible School, starting Wednesday.

Sloas said every year they have to come up with different programs in order to get young kids to the church. She said the church has to fight the growing distractions of cell phones and television.

"If we're going to reach kids nowadays, we have to reach them where they're at," Sloas added.

More than 1,200 kids took part in this year's VBS at Grace Baptist.
