VBS, the summer event where parents bring their children to the church and drop them off for other people to watch through the morning. Sometimes I think thats the only way we think about it. It's soooooo much more!
First and foremost, VBS is and opportunity to share Jesus and the truth in His Word, with the community. Also, it's probably the event that gets the most people (all ages) from our congregation involved in any one activity. This creates awesome opportunity to get to know one another better. It also gives opportunity to people to discover and develop their talents. It places adults and youth side by side, working with a common goal. It reinforces the family structure within the body of Christ. Seeds are planted, cultivated and in some instances harvested. What a great event.
I want to say in advance, to those of you who will be helping this year, THANK YOU! If your not helping, and would like to help, it's not too late, please give me a call. If you have children, live in the area, and would like to bring them, please do.
VBS is for ages preschool through 6th grades. The dates are June 22 - 26, and the time each morning is from 9:00 to Noon. Please join me in praying that all who are involved will be blessed.
