James and LeesaWord-from-our-pastorPsalm 127:3 (ESV) “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.”
 There are several outreaching opportunities throughout the year that take place in the churches across our nation that allows 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 event…180,000 United States churches host VBS each year…52% of pastors who decided as kids to follow Jesus did so while at a children’s summer camp/VBS…25-28% of all baptisms in the Southern Baptist Convention are direct results of VBS.
Copeland Baptist Church presents Galactic Starveyors—VBS. On Saturday, July 8th from 11:00am-2:00pm will be a VBS Kickoff Day with games, food, bounce house and more.
And then on Sunday, July 9th-14th our VBS-Galactic Starveyors Adventure begins with a free supper at 5:00pm. Everyone is invited to come eat and VBS is from 6:00pm-8:30pm. On Friday the 14th from 6:00pm-7:30pm is our VBS Family night. Please come and join us and discover that the God, who created everything there is, wants a personal relationship with them! If you are unsure of where you can help, see Leesa Kerns and she will get you plugged into VBS.
You can also check our webpage ( for more information concerning VBS; as well as any other information you may need concerning Copeland Baptist Church.
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!
