Thank you, thank you, thank you. To the many volunteers who worked at Vacation Bible School last week. Each day we had about 90 children & 70 workers. God blessed our week as 33 children (grades 2-5) responded to the gospel. Many of these children are unchurched. Some need rides to church. Others have rides, but not motivated parents. Pray that God would enable us follow up these through Sunday School, GAs and Pastor’s Pals, as well as our Fun-tastic Sunday nights.
Reaching kids can be a rescue mission. We learned that some of the kids had parents who were incarcerated. Another was abandoned by drug- addicted parents. Others whose parents consider themselves unbelievers. Many simply caught in the malaise of selfish living and in need of a Savior. How can we do more? We need revival. Aug 2-5, Mark Bearden of Life Action Ministries will be with us to share about the Road to Awakening. Let’s begin to call upon God to revive us so that He might restore His favor (Ps 80:18-19).
