If you haven’t been part of our Vacation Bible School this week I believe that you would be amazed at what is happening at YOUR church! Perhaps you should come down and check it out. The week is going very smoothly and the place is “crawling with kids.” I don’t have the latest count available but I know that it’s over 40, and I can’t keep track of all the adults that are participating either as volunteers or in the adult study. We’re all having a great time at Camp Adventure. So far we’ve learned how to deal with a BIG bully, a guy named Goliath, and we’ve had a lesson in fire safety…how God delivered three faithful men from a fiery furnace. All week long we are learning about how Jesus works through you and me, and that we can be strong and courageous because God is with us wherever we go. Tonight Jesus shows us His love and how we too can love others because He first loved us. Of all the people who came to Jesus needing His help He never turned any away. He always responded to them with His love and compassion. We can do the same, empowered by His Spirit that lives in us, responding to the needs of those who come to us. Come on down and take part!
