The one who is victorious will, like them,
be dressed in white.
I will never blot out the name of that person
from the book of life,
but will acknowledge that name
before my Father and his angels.
It’s Vacation Bible School time! In the coming weeks, almost all our churches will be going “all out” to bring in children and teach children about God and His Word. The themes will be different, the decorations will vary, the workers will not be the same, but the reasoning is the same in each case. I encourage you to support the VBS in your church and in other churches. It’s not about “my church” and “our VBS”, but about helping children learn about God and to come to a personal relationship with Him!
FBC, Kentwood will begin Sunday with a registration party from 5-7 P.M. Bring the family so they will learn to be comfortable with our church and our people. VBS will begin Monday morning at 8:30 in the sanctuary and conclude at 11:30 in the sanctuary. Parent night is Friday. Come see some of what your child/children have learned. Lend us to us each morning for a week. I know their lives will be greatly impacted in a positive way.
Later, this summer, as other churches have VBS, you will soon realize there are many different themes that will be used this summer. It’s okay for children to participate in more than one VBS. Neither my children or I did that, but I certainly see the advantage of being in different programs in different churches. Each church only wants to be a part the life of the children. Give your child/children all such opportunities that will work for your family. That can make a “heavenly and eternal” difference!
Read the Bible – Proverbs 7-9 and Psalm 150.

Remember to keep the Lord in your weekend.
P.S. The server needed to be rebooted for me to get into The Prayer Link today. Jason has already left for a fishing tournament by the time I realized there was a problem. I was able to tell him about it as soon as he called after the tournament, but he had to travel home to do what was necessary. By that time, I was sidetracked. I decided to post what I had written as a Google document this morning.
I want to add the link to the Waylon Bailey document. It seems like he has VBS thoughts this morning just like I did. David and I did spend some time at the church this afternoon preparing my room for teaching missions during VBS.
