Psalm 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% of pastors who decided as kids to follow Jesus, did so while at a children’s summer camp/VBS…25% to 28% of all baptisms in the Southern Baptist Convention are direct results of VBS.   
Mark down VBS Kick-off will be Saturday, July 10th @ 11:00-1:00pm.  VBS begins Sunday, July 11th-15th @ 6:00pm-8:30pm.  Family night will be Friday, July 16th @ 7:00pm.  Come join us at “Mystery Island” (VBS).  We’ll track down the One True God and learn how amazing He is through the pages of scripture.  We’ll uncover the truth about our Creator God in a week’s long adventure as you explore Mystery Island with music, crafts, group activities and more!
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  into VBS 2021.

REMEMBER: If we are not reaching kids for God , then know that Satan wouldn’t hesitate to reach them!
