"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various form."

1 Peter 4:10

“God Made You for a Reason!”

VBS is over for another year.  It is definitely a bitter-sweet day when we say goodbye to the kids for another year.  By Thursday night, we are all exhausted, but we know that we will not be able to share the love of Jesus with many of them until next year.

If you were part of this fabulous team, let me say, “THANK YOU!” It took everyone pulling together to make this year’s VBS another success.

There were over 51 kids who attended this year and 20 teens who served on the VBS staff.  It is my prayer that we are having an impact on our community through this ministry.  This could not be done without YOU!

This year, the kids learned a lot of valuable lessons about themselves and God that are a good reminder for each of us.

  1. GOD MADE YOU!  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; I know that full well.  Psalm 139:14
  2. GOD IS FOR YOU!  What then, shall we say in response to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
  3. GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU!  Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9
  4. GOD WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!  I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.  Psalm 89:2
  5. GOD MADE YOU FOR A REASON!  For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord.  Jeremiah 29:11

I hope you treasure these truths and pass them on to the people in your life who don’t know how wonderful our God is.

It is important that we find ways to continue showing these kids and youth the love of Jesus.  Our fall programming will kick off on August 30th, and the first Kid’s Bible Club and youth group night will begin on September 6th at 6:30pm.  If you would like to help with either of these ministries, please contact Pastor Stef or Mike Coleman.

See you in church!

Pastor Stef
