As believers, current events have caused us to think a lot about the attributes of God: His sovereignty, His wisdom, His love, and His holiness. According to A.W. Tozer, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” Our knowledge of God is the foundation for how we live our lives. To that end, Children’s Ministry has been eagerly planning for this year’s Vacation Bible School—a week of fun and teaching centered around the attributes of God.
In Children’s Ministry, our primary commitment is to reach children with the good news of Jesus Christ, and each year at VBS, more than 800 children come together for a week 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 for salvation.
If you are wondering how you can get involved, there are several practical ways you can help. First, we are 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 are 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 can 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 will join us for VBS this summer. We are excited to see how the Lord will use this week to make an impact for eternity.
