VBS was a success !! When you consider success, what do you think of ? Lot's of people? No major mishaps? A smooth, organized experience? Well those are all great and true to an extent but VBS was a success because God showed up !!
God was there in our mist and we Got to sup with him and experience him. As you can see by our many videos on Facebook, we also had fun as well, but God was the movie star, and he was the focus !! We had visitors ! We had great workers and help and God Blessed all efforts.
On another note, we have now begun a series on service and vision on Sunday mornings. What is service? Is it using your talents for God? absolutely, but it is also being willing to do things you are not always good at as well. It all goes back to, a matter of the heart and are you focused inward on what makes you feel good, and that is all you can see, or do you cast your gaze and hope outward and upward and strive to please God and get a little uncomfortable at times? It's not always the most glamorous, or even satisfying job, but God always blesses and restores, because He is amazing !
As we go into fall, we are planning a food drive and in October we will have our 1 year anniversary, wow, time flies !
Please continue to pray for us as we grow in number and in HIM !
We have a men's Bible study on every other Friday night and a women's study once a month, and those are going well. The men are doing one of the 33 series books and the women are doing the Gideon study by Priscilla Shirer study which is amazing.
