Tomorrow begins Vacation Bible School. How thankful I am for each one who has volunteered his/her time to serve this week. Our hats go off to Amanda Wilson, VBS coordinator too. Much work and labor has already gone into making this week a success.
Maybe you aren’t able to serve for various reasons – but we can all pray. Pray for the boys and girls who will come through our doors. Pray for God’s Spirit to make them sensitive to the gospel. Ask God to save souls this week. May he use this week as an opportunity to reach dads and moms too. Don’t forget to pray for our own children who attend VBS. Perhaps they have already trusted Christ as their Savior, but they need to be challenged and need to grow in their Christian lives. The evil one would love to sow seeds of disharmony or disunity among our staff. Pray for hearts bent on serving and not being served.
Weather is important this coming week – not too hot or too wet.
From the moment children are born, they are seeking to make sense of the world around them. By teaching children God’s Word at a young age, we nurture the formation of a biblical worldview. We desire to have children know God and grow in Christ. We all must be a part of that effort – parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts – and church members too. Vacation Bible School is simply another link in the long chain of reaching and teaching kids.
