We do praise the Lord and give Him the honor for an awesome and God glorifying session of Vacation Bible School – 2017. This session of VBS certainly ranks among the best that this Pastor has attended, both in teaching and presentation. The Publishing Board presented to us an exciting theme for our edification, Celebrate Jesus. As born again, blood bought, children of the Most High God, how easy it is for us to celebrate Jesus. To quote from the Adult Student Manual: “This VBS series seeks to teach the essentiality of Jesus to the process of salvation. Without Him not only would there not be a creation (for all things were made by Him, see John 1:3), but humanity would not have the opportunity to receive forgiveness of our sins and to become children God. Therefore, when we understand that His name means exactly what He does – that God saves – we can celebrate and honor Him appropriately.”
VBS is a very special time in the life of any church. The Word of God, the Bible, is presented in age appropriate classes. “For the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12, 13).
A big “God bless you” goes out to Sister Lynne Bryant and all of the teachers for a job well done. To Deacon Alvin Smith, Brother Thomas Barnett and Sister Liz Norris, thank you for great food. To Sister Janice Wright and all of the Psalmist for excellent music and to Dr. Suntera Scott, and all who assisted her for their creative work in the crafts.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY! VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL – 2017
