Monday’s Moments…

“But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:31

Our VBS – “In The Wild” week is off to a great start! We had over 90 involved this morning and expect our numbers to grow through the week. The kids all had a great attitude and time, and our workers did a great job adjusting as needed to the normal first day issues. I am so blessed to see our church at work being Jesus to the kids in our community. Be sure to come and be a part of worship next week as the children will sing and showcase what they learned this week during VBS. This is always one of my favorite Sunday’s as we will have many guest come to our church because of their kids and VBS. Be sure to introduce yourself and welcome them to worship!

We have two more teams arrive to help with Disaster Relief this week. One group is north of the river, the other is a pastor friend of mine coming with his church from Kentucky. Please continue to pray for our D.R. teams as well as the Levasy folks as the weather looks hot and sticky this week. Most still do not have power or A/C and the work is challenging to say the least.

If you have not taken advantage of the new media resource from Right Now Ministries, or have not been able to log-in, please let us know. This is a valuable resource for you to use on your computer, smart TV, or personal device loaded with Christian content, training, bible studies, and tons of kids stuff. We will be introducing it again this Sunday so our VBS families can take advantage of this gift as well.

“But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:31

The above verse is the theme verse for our VBS which begins next week… I can’t believe a year has gone by and we are already prepping for VBS once again. I’m always excited about the potential and opportunity to see kids learn more about Jesus, and to also see our church family work together in doing kingdom work… being Jesus, and sharing Jesus!

This year’s theme is “Into The Wild” and soon you will see our church transform into a jungle of activity. If you’re helping with VBS we need you here by 8:00am… You can begin working on your VBS classrooms this Sunday after worship. If you’re not able to help this year, please be praying for our children and workers. We appreciate you lifting us up and supporting the vibrant VBS ministry at FBC. Your financial support and prayers are so appreciated!

Guy’s, don’t forget that our monthly Men’s breakfast is this Saturday at 8:00am. Bring your appetite and bring a friend!

This Sunday we will gather for worship, and introduce our VBS theme and purpose as we commission our teachers and workers. Join us for an inspirational time of song and scripture as we ready ourselves for a week of VBS. Then on the following Sunday, we will host our annual VBS Family Worship at FBC as we invite our VBS families to join their children in sharing their experiences, songs, lessons, and a highlight video that will wrap up our Summer VBS program. Come and share in the excitement and chaos as we journey “Into The Wild”.

Coming Up:

* This Saturday – Men’s Breakfast, 8:00am

Monday’s Moments…

Yesterday was a day of mixed emotions as we had a wonderful turnout for our worship service and also said good-by to Ted Taylor as we honored him with a carry-in meal and card shower after church. We will greatly miss Ted, and want to keep him in our prayers as he moves to Texas with his family. Job well done Ted (and Juanita) – you have been good and faithful servants!

Our D.R. team is still working hard this week with a couple of more teams arriving today to work in Levasy. We appreciate all of their hard work, and plan on having more teams coming to work and serve throughout July. Your financial donations continue to help the residents of Levasy as well as keeping our volunteers hydrated. Thanks for giving!

Our D.R. leadership would welcome any volunteers from our church or community who would like to work, and training will be provided as needed. We are also needing more empty gallon jugs to supply “Shockwave” to the Levasy residents who need to rid their home of mold and mildew. Please leave your empty jugs on the table by the south doors.

This week begins our “Summer Kid Feed” as we partner with the school to provide breakfast and lunch for kids who need a nutritious meal. At this point we have had several come in for food and a cool place to eat and rest. I appreciate our church being willing to share our facilities and resources with these kids, their families, and our D.R. volunteers. I’m sure we will see a increase in utilities and supplies needed to keep these needs met… your faithfulness in giving/serving, and your stewardship to the Lord is very much appreciated!

This week our office will be closed on the 4th & 5th of July, but we look forward to worship this Sunday as we finish our mini-series on “The Weeds and the Seeds”. Have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day and then bring a friend to worship with us this Sunday at FBC!
