NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A Nacogdoches church put a unique spin on their vacation bible school this year. The theme included lots of camo, beards and duck calls.

Phil, Willie, Si and the rest of the Robertson clan or at least characters dressed up like the Duck Dynasty stars are teaching parables this week at North Street Church in Nacogdoches vacation bible school.

Lisa Grigsby, Children's Ministry Director at North Street Church said, "Duck Dynasty remains very popular, especially in East Texas, and we just thought what a better way to get kids motivated to come to VBS than with this particular theme."

The worship hall was packed full of kids sporting their favorite camo and lots of facial hair and the VBS curriculum has an authenticity to it because Korie Robertson and her mother wrote it.

"Their thought was to teach the parables of Jesus to kids so that they can apply it to their lives and use those stories to guide their behavior," said Lisa Grigsby.

The characters sang songs and performed skits about the Robertson crew slacking off at work, going to lunch early in lieu of making duck calls.

Kennedy Grigsby is attending and participating in Willie's Redneck Rodeo VBS. She said, "I think this is going to be one of the best VBS because it's such an awesome show and you know everyone loves it here in East Texas but I just think everyone's going to love it."

Sean Suttles, who portrays Willie Robertson says he put in a lot of prep work.

"Hours and hours of preparation have gone into this. I started growing the beard about three years ago just for this moment," said Suttles.    

Suttles says the five day program is a funny and hands-on way to get the message out about faith, forgiveness, prayer, obedience and kindness.

"It's for the kids," said Suttles. "We're just going to have a skit about faith. I hope that they can have a good memory of it and they can bring home the lesson about faith today."

Those who are interested in participating in the Duck Dynasty vacation bible school can still sign up. VBS will be every night this week from 6 pm to 8 pm  at North Street Church in Nacogdoches.
