Why we do VBS?



“He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments;” (Psalm 78:5-7, ESV)


Beloved,


Why do we do Vacation Bible School? We do VBS because we want our children to set their hope in God and to keep his commandments. VBS is an incredible opportunity to teach the children the gospel through song, stories, mission, crafts and the Word. VBS is also a great opportunity to demonstrate the love of God to our children. Our children need to know that they are important and loved by this church. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Beloved, let us arm ourselves with smiles and hearts of joy so that our children will see God’s love through us.


VBS is one of the most important outreaches that we will do all year. There will be many friends and family that will interact with our church during VBS that need to see and hear the gospel. What a privilege it is share the glory of God in Christ with our community this week. We need God to bless our labors and our efforts so that His Name is glorified in all that we do this coming week.


VBS takes a team of volunteers to pull off. We need help in making this coming week one of the best weeks in the lives of our children. I want to thank the church in advance for all the prayers and effort in making VBS a success this year. What a joy it is to see a church working together for the glory of God!! So come, serve and see what God will do through Park Baptist Church this VBS.


Please pray this week for God to move through His Spirit to strengthen our children by His grace and to call people to Him in faith. Pray that we would steward the hearts of the children well with the glorious good news of our Risen Savior. Pray that families would find a home at Park this week. Pray that God is glorified.


In Christ,
