Greeting Church Family and Friends,
Well, the time has finally come! I am so excited. This week, including our service this morning is all about Vacation Bible School! Can I get a “Everybody Say “Yes”; Say YES to VBS! IT IS TIME! GAME ON!
It’s time to gear up for the big game! So grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune up your horn. It’s go time! As kids, youth & adults of all ages get ready for the big game, they will learn that the goal is not competing in their own strength because God has already equipped them with everything they need!
We will be conducting LifeWay’s Game On! for Vacation Bible School. This year’s VBS is all about equipping kids to gear up for life’s big game. We want the children and adults to join us for the fun and excitement! During VBS, we will learn that God has already given them everything they need. Each day we as kids and adults will dig deep into God’s Word to examine how Jesus cares about us as well as make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about missions.
We are eagerly waiting to welcome children of all ages to this free event. Please tell your neighbors, better yet, bring your neighbors. If you can’t bring them, have them call the church van line and arrange to be picked up. By the way, that number is 423-272-7424. Game On! offers something for everyone, so ask about our studies for students and adults.
The Time Has Come! So Pray, Pray, Pray! Pray for leaders to have the stamina, wisdom, and patience they need to care for these young children.
• Ask God to grant wisdom to each leader to share Bible truths in age-appropriate ways.
• Pray that all preschool leaders will reflect the love of Jesus.
Ask God to prepare the hearts of the children to fully understand the concepts of sin and the gospel so that they might apply these concepts to their daily lives.
I also want to take a moment here to say THANK YOU! To all who have helped in anyway to make this VBS ready to go and be a success. Thanks to all my teachers, security team, decorators, helpers, music people, craft workers and kitchen staff. You just don’t know how important you are. This truly is a team effort, so THANK YOU!
Whether you identify more with the band, coach, players, cheerleaders or the fans, you are all necessary to our VBS.
So, Whether you’re the type to root from the stands, march in the band, cheer on the field, or hustle to the line, the time is now—it’s Game On! Join us the week.
Until next week, Love and prayers,
