We had a great week of Vacation Bible School! 56 children joined us over the week as we focused on our faithful God who keeps all of His promises on life’s wild ride!
Life can indeed feel at times like were headed down a raging river with no paddle, no life jacket and sometimes not even a raft! And while God does not promise to rescue us from life’s trials and storms, He does promise to see us through them. Christ Jesus is God’s yes to every promise He has ever made to His people. As we reflected on God’s promises in Christ and in our baptism into Christ, we rejoiced that our faithful God who has already defeated sin and death for us will see us through every trial, challenge and obstacle that we face in this life.
Our VBS mission project this year was Mission Madagascar. This mission outreach sends Bible-based literature to children and families in Madagascar. The children’s response was quite impressive as they did an excellent job bringing in their daily offerings and giving $147.99 to support this mission project! Well done!
Thank you to everyone who donated various items and to everyone who volunteered their time and energy to plan, decorate, teach, organize and lead a fantastic week of VBS!
Serving with you in Christ,
