“Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?” —Exodus 15:11
The underlying drive of Children’s Ministry is to reach children with the good news of Jesus Christ. For the past five years, Children’s Ministry has hosted a summer Vacation Bible School where hundreds of volunteers have given up a week of their lives to share the gospel with children. As a result, more than a thousand kids have heard the gospel of salvation in Christ alone.
This year’s VBS theme is centered around the attributes of God. Each day will include music and teaching focused on exalting God as children learn about His sovereignty, omniscience, love, and holiness. These lessons will be reinforced by small group discussions, crafts, and games. The teachers and leaders will point children every day to their Creator and Savior, encouraging them to put their trust in Him for salvation and follow Him as they live out their lives at home and school, with their family and friends.
Some children have made a profession of faith after hearing the gospel at VBS, and there are families who have joined Grace Church because of how excited and engaged their kids were during this wonderful week. We continue to hear stories of God’s amazing work in the lives of parents and children through the ministry that happens every year at Vacation Bible School. We depend completely on God to accomplish His purpose as we plan for VBS 2021.
Please join us in praying for the volunteers and children who are attending VBS. Our desire is that God would be honored, and Christ would be glorified as we continue to reach families with the good news of Jesus Christ.
