One Week Makes a Difference

07.14.17 | by Faye Scott

         There truly is nothing quite like Vacation Bible School (VBS) in the life of a church!  Whether the church is a small church or a larger church, VBS is contagious and exciting!

         In these few days of the church’s calendar, people who have never met—adults and youth alike—work side by side. We serve snacks, teach God’s Word, share the Gospel, play games, worship together…and more!  There really is no other week like this one!

         You may wonder why our church hosts VBS.  Moving nearly 600 people around each day is expensive and can be overwhelming!  But, the anticipation of many children receiving Jesus Christ as Savior, others being introduced to incredible Bible truths, or a deepening of faith for others—there is no price tag!

         I was encouraged this week through Mrs. Joyce Harrington’s email, “You can count on my fervent prayers for I know this one week makes an indelible mark on children.  May every worker and child become more like Jesus from the experience in VBS.”  Her words encapsulate our heart’s desire for VBS.

         If you cannot physically be a part of this week, follow Mrs. Harrington’s model and join the work through your fervent prayers.  May the Lord pour out His Spirit upon this week!

         Stop by the FBNO Kids’ table or the Creative Arts table in the lobby to learn how you can provide a snack, enroll a child, or volunteer—even for one day. Contact  (VBS) or   (CAC) for more information.
