What could I possibly write about this month that would be more relevant than Vacation Bible School 2017? In just a few days our sanctuary will be transformed into a barn yard, and from June 12th June 16th we will once again welcome our own children and those of our community to a week of crafts, music, and Bible stories – all with the purpose of sharing the gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. The young men and women of Rock Ministries will be with us again this year, with their puppet shows, balloon animals, and youthful excitement and energy!
Vacation Bible School is our church’s main community evangelical outreach each year, and it is the one event where the buildup never exceeds the event itself. Yes, at the end of the week our staff and volunteers will again be exhausted – but once it’s in your blood, you’re hooked! I encourage each of our members, if you have yet to contact our VBS Director, Lori Sunday, to volunteer your time and talents for this year’s school, please do so without delay!
There is still time to encourage your loved ones, neighbors, and friends to register their children. In addition to all the activities the children will enjoy each day, we will also be serving them lunch before they go home, and, unlike many churches in our community, our VBS is entirely free for all who attend. SEE YOU THERE!
STAY STRONG AND COURAGEOUS IN THE LORD TODAY,
