Beginning tonight, our church will host Vacation Bible School for the children of our church and the community. VBS will be one of the most important outreach events of the summer, possibly of the year.VBS is important because children are important to God. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me. Don’t stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14).
There’s an aging of the church in America. Fewer children fill the seats than 30 years ago.
VBS provides an opportunity to share the Gospel with children in an exciting manner. We have never let the size of our church or the lack of workers to ever prevent our church from hosting a VBS. Even before we had a building we put on a VBS. Jesus told us to, “Pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest (Luke 10:2). God desires children to know Him.
VBS is one of the most time-consuming, largest outreaches any church will offer. As much as the work, cost and involvement is required to host a VBS, the results can and we pray will be tremendous. Will you pray today that God will bring dozens of new children to our VBS tonight?
Do you know any young people 4 years old through incoming 5th graders? Please invite them to “WEIRD ANIMALS” tonight through Thursday night and it is all for FREE! Show up at 5:45 pm or contact C3 ‘s Children’s Director DeLynn at firstname.lastname@example.org
