Midweek Message, July 12, 2017

5 days.

50 children.

35 volunteers.

And one amazing spirit of joy and gladness.

That’s the numerical summary of our Christ By The Sea campus this week, as we have been experiencing yet another incredible Vacation Bible School. Themed “Mighty Fortress: In Jesus, The Victory Is Won,” every room has been transformed into an imaginative and immersive place for our children to experience God’s love for them.

Kudos, of course, go to our stellar Vacation Bible School team of adult and youth volunteers. Running a weeklong program for 50 kids has required months of preparation and weeks of gathering, building, and fine-tuning every little detail to make this an unforgettable experience. And thank you, for your faithful and generous stewardship that makes these kinds of programs possible.

We remember that the goal of VBS is not just to entertain and amuse. The reason this church puts such a high priority on this week is that each morning, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., our children are learning vital spiritual truths that can shape their lives for years to come.

As you venture into the rest of your summer, take a moment to give thanks for another wonderful Vacation Bible School, and for all the people that made it happen. More importantly, know that: In Jesus, The Victory Is Won. Amen.
