James and LeesaWord-from-our-pastorPsalm 127:3 – Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from Him.”
There are several outreaching opportunities throughout the year that take place in the churches across our nation that allow God’s Gospel to reach “the lost and unchurched” of our communities but none more important than Vacation Bible School (VBS).
So Why is VBS So Important?
Vacation Bible School is: the single largest outreach event for churches…An ideal setting for a ministry because more people will be on the church campus during VBS than at any other time…More people have come to know Jesus as Savior than any single church event…180,000 United States churches host VBS each year…52 percent of pastors who decided as kids to follow Jesus did so while at a children’s summer camp/VBS…25 to 28 percent of all baptisms in the Southern Baptist Convention are direct results of VBS.
Mark down VBS Kick Off—Saturday, July 21 @ 11am-2pm and then on July 22-26, 2018 is our VBS week. Theme is called “GAME ON”. Family night will be Friday, July 27th at 6:30pm. So, save these dates to your phone, a calendar or your daily planner as a reminder to earnestly pray for the children that will hear the Gospel during this week. Most importantly, get involved with this most important outreach event. If you are unsure of where you can help, see Leesa Kerns and she will get you plugged in to VBS.

REMEMBER: There’s a race going on between God and Satan to see who gets to the heart of the children and the first one there WINS!
