VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL – 2014

March 31, 2014

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.

WHAT IF YOU WERE KIND TO YOURSELF TODAY?

March 9, 2014

What if you looked in the mirror and smiled?
Instead of counted gray hairs and wrinkles.

What if you read a love letter today?
One written to you. A thousand years ago.
God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!
What if you believed it?

What if you counted the number of times God says that He is with you? With you. Not sometimes, not when you’ve got it all together. Not when you’ve lost that weight, succeeded at that job, tamed that child.
Just with you. Period. (280 times!!)

What if you remembered and were kind to yourself – because you are a child of God?
Beautiful, called, named, beloved.

-Devotional excerpt by Lisa-Jo from (in)courage.
