You may or may not start your day with exercise, or a hot cup of coffee, but here are seven things you can wrap your faith around as you begin your day…

-Love greeted you when you opened your eyes.
Declare Your loving kindness in the morning. Psalm 92:2

-Your day belongs to the Lord.
My times are in Your hand. Psalm 31:15

-Your theme song for the day is “Rejoice”.
This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

-Today is a fresh start in His mercies.
The reason I can find hope is that I keep this one thing in mind: the Lord’s mercy…His compassion is never limited. It is new every morning. His faithfulness is great. Lamentations 3:21-23

-You’re the best dressed person in town.
He has dressed me in the clothes of salvation. He has wrapped me in the robe of righteousness. Isaiah 61:10

-This is the day to live free from the cares of tomorrow.
So don’t ever worry about tomorrow. Matthew 6:34

-Carry hope in your heart all through the day.
Be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day; For surely there is a hereafter, And your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:17-18

-P.S. At the end of the day, His faithfulness will be there to tuck you in at night.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High…And Your faithfulness every night. Psalm 92:1-2

Our VBS theme this year is Workshop of Wonders, “You are the God who works wonders.” Psalm 77:14a. With God, we can experience wonder all around us; whatever we bring, God uses. So mark your calendars! Our Vacation Bible School will be held Monday, June 16 through Friday, June 20.

This is a wonderful opportunity for your grandchildren to visit you. Call your children and share the dates; plan for your grandkids to participate in VBS. Tell your neighbors, VBS is for everyone! There will be classes for children ages 3 through those going into grade six. Teenagers are most welcome as helpers.

There are a myriad of ways for everyone to be involved!

1) Pray. Pray now that volunteers continue to come forward. Pray for children to come. Pray that we fulfill the opportunity to minister to the children.

2) Volunteer. Volunteer to help with creating decorations, providing supplies, preparing materials, taking photos, providing snacks/ snack ingredients, and of course, working with the children as a teacher, or teacher’s helper. There are many ways not listed that you can volunteer.

3) Contribute. Contribute with your prayers, your gifts, and your service.

Contact Gloria Foster, Karen Jones, or the church office today to share your gifts and talents for Vacation Bible School, 2014.
