It’s That Time of Year Again!

It’s That Time of Year Again!

Vacation Bible School is NEXT WEEK. We look forward to having a great team of volunteers along with a crowd of kids here next week. Our theme this year is “Time Lab: Discovering Jesus from Eternity Past to Eternity Future.” Our VBS curriculum takes a look at the work of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. Here are the themes for each day:

Day 1: Creation- we will learn of Jesus’ existence before creation and His role in it.
Day 2: Christophany- we will see the Son of God revealed even in the Old Testament.
Day 3: Cross- we consider Jesus’ work to die in the place of sinners and be raised from the dead.
Day 4: Clouds- Jesus’ ascension and what it means for us.
Day 5: Crown- Jesus’ glorious reign for eternity in the new heavens and new earth.

We are excited about this Jesus centered curriculum. Please, please be praying for June 4-8. You can pray for God’s Spirit to be at work it the hearts of all the kids and in the hearts of our volunteers. Pray that some will come to put their trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior. Pray that our workers have a great love for the kids. Please pray for a safe week as well and that God would be pleased to give us good weather. Also, pray that this may be a tool for us to reach the families of unchurched kids!
Lastly, please be encouraged to come and help! Many hands make light work! We need all hands on deck this Thursday night, from 6-9PM for our worker orientation meeting. Y’all come!
