“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” For some it’s Christmas but for me it is VBC week!!!
There is a beautiful kind of chaos going on at the church this week. Inside, outside, every nook and cranny of the church occupied by children and committed and faithful leaders. It is a beautiful sight!
Every 20 minutes or so, leaders in blue shirts can be seen guiding little children to various stations in the church where, through a craft or activity, they learn about the point of the day.
This year’s theme is EVEREST: Conquering Challenges with God’s Mighty Power and through the week we are being reminded that:
God has the power to PROVIDE
God has the power to COMFORT
God has the power to HEAL
God has the power to FORGIVE
God has the power to LOVE US FOREVER
I'd say that's a good reminder for all of us. But what is simply awesome is that for some of our little campers this is the first time they are hearing about who God is and how much God loves them.
This week, I have a very special request of you. I am posting this early so that you might join me in praying for our Vacation Bible Camp (VBS). Would you join me?
Please pray for:
- Nancy, Emily and our three awesome summer students, Kenny, Laura and Tyler. Pray for patience, energy, good health and opportunities to show God’s love to the children in their midst.
- All our volunteers, without whom this could not happen. Please pray for good health, positive attitudes and lots of energy. Please pray that they would be both a blessing and be blessed this week.
- Our little campers - for safety and good health. Please pray that this week they might have an encounter with God and, that they would know that they are loved by a Loving and Mighty God.
- Please pray for the families that each camper represents. Please pray that as parents or caregivers drop off and pick up their little ones that they too encounter God’s love through the songs sung, the crafts brought home and the people who are selflessly serving their children each day.
I am asking you to pray because of what we are told in James 5:16, that “the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” and as it reads in the New Living Translation “It produces wonderful results.” Pray with me for a glorious week!
Join us on Sunday for a very special Everest Family Experience as we close off our VBC week.
