As believers, current events have caused us to think a lot about the attributes of God: His sovereignty, His power, and His love. With everything that’s been going on, you might be wondering what is going to happen in the weeks to come. In Children’s Ministry, this has made us even more eager in planning for VBS this year as we will be studying the attributes of God.
In Children’s Ministry at Grace Church, our primary commitment is to reach children with the good news of Jesus Christ. One of the ways we do this is through hosting Vacation Bible School. Each year, more than 800 children have come for five days of music, games, crafts, and teaching designed to point them to the Savior.
This year’s VBS theme, “The Great Exploration,” focuses on Exodus 15:11, “Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?” During this week, children will learn about the attributes of God and how they must trust in Him.
If you’re wondering how you can get involved, there are several practical ways you can help. First, we’re looking for volunteers to serve during the week of VBS. A team of coordinators has already been working enthusiastically to plan the event, and there are many opportunities for you to serve our church family and the community. We’re looking for help with set-up, small groups, games, crafts, food, and more, all with the goal of planting seeds for the gospel. For more information, please visit gracechurch.org/vbs.
Second, you can provide financial support. All children who attend VBS attend for free. If you would like to assist us in this ministry, you may donate at gracechurch.org/vbs.
Finally, and most importantly, you can pray. Pray for the children, the families, and the members of our community who participate in Vacation Bible School. Pray that the gospel of Jesus Christ would be communicated clearly and that hearts would be receptive to God’s saving truth.
We hope you’ll join us for VBS this summer. We’re excited to see how the Lord will use this week to make an impact for eternity.
