No matter what happens…trust God!
No matter where you are…trust God!
What incredible Bible truths for children and adults alike to discover or reclaim and be able to apply to daily life. Each day at SKY VBS 2012 through Bible adventures, Bible verses, songs, and hands-on activities we will have the opportunity to know more about God and His love for us. Each activity points the children to the Bible Point for the day and will encourage them to watch for how God is at work in their lives.
VBS at First Baptist Church will have a different look this year. First, all children will have the same lesson each day. Families will be encouraged to discuss the Bible Point with the children each evening. Secondly, children will be divided into Crews of 5-7 children of with a Crew Leader who helps them build relationships throughout the week. The Combined-age Crews will encourage cooperation, improve social skills, and raise self-esteem as each child experiences acceptance as a special creation of a Loving God.
It is so exciting to be a part of God’s work at FBC in 2012. Every single person who is a part of our church family in this season of your life has the privilege of serving during the week of June 11-15 in our SKY VBS. A question I am often asked during this time of year is “Do you have enough people for VBS?” My sincere answer to that question this year is, “If everyone God calls or leads to serve responds with a yes, we will have enough!” The secret is to understand how God is calling you to be involved. Following His leadership might place you as a Station Leader, a Crew Leader, a member of the Support Crew (including Bus Drivers for outreach opportunities), or a fervent Prayer Warrior. Many have already responded but some of you may not have had the opportunity to say yes to the Spirit’s prompting. Please contact the Children’s Ministry Office or fill out a form at the display in our Welcome Center if you have not already done so. Theresa Lambert, Susan Stahl and I are trusting God to call and you to respond. We are anticipating a thrilling, life-changing week!
Parents please don’t forget your part in this. Register your children at the display, at the Children’s Ministry Office, or on line at our Web site. VBS is really all centered around the children and their learning about God and His love for them.
