It's VBS time!
This year's theme is "Galactic Starveyors; Discovering the God of the Universe!!!!" The Bible verse is Colossians 1:15-16;
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.
The whole week of VBS is centered around the idea of Relationship. Quoting the promotional material, "The God who created everything there is—the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible—wants a relationship with you! And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we would break."
The "Starveyors" are introduced to the beginning of the Relationship in the Garden, the breaking of the Relationship at the Fall, the promised Restoration in Jesus, The Relationship Restored at the cross and ends with the Relationship being continued through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Wow! That is EXACTLY what the church should be teaching! I am excited to see God's Word shared and am confident that there will be spiritual fruit in the lives of the young "Starveyors."
Would you join me in praying for VBS this month? VBS begins Monday, June 19th.
Since we're now talking about prayer, would you also pray for Keru Naan in Senegal? As I type this there is a team there from Lumberton, North Carolina. They will be encouraging the believers and sharing the gospel! Praise God for our mission partners!
At the business meeting held on May 21st we voted to continue in prayer about our property and expansion. We, as a church, will hear the clear Word from the Lord we are seeking when we are fervently praying.
June also marks the beginning of our Everybody Bible Study. This summer we are doing a 10 week study by James MacDonald called, "Think Differently." We will meet at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary on Wednesdays starting June 7th. This should be a very interesting study! As the name implies, it is for EVERYBODY!
Congratulations to all of our recent graduates. We will also be praying for you as start a new chapter in your lives. God is so good!
God bless, Pastor Rob
