VACATION pels SCHOOL WEEK! Neier Py aNd R Lai KIDS COUNT We thank God for the many years of service of Beverly Burgoyne as she has worked with our youngest little people and now feels led to a new stage in her life. Betsy Evans continues to faithfully serve as our elementary aged Children’s Director. It also happens to be that time of year we offer Vacation Bible School. In other words, kids count! “Submerged” is the VBS theme this year, utilizing the submarine metaphor and the need to find truth below the surface. We want our kids to dive deep and stay down long. They don’t need a diving bell or scuba gear but a willingness to sink into scripture in order to see the wonderful things that God has for them. Our children’s ministry also teaches them in Bible and Life Groups, Kidztown, and AWANAs to establish a solid faith foundation and a discipleship track so that they will be like little Samuel. Even as a young boy, he “grew, and the Lord was with him“ (1 Samuel 3:19). Our volunteers believe that the Bible is our textbook, standard, and guide. It is our joy to give a copy of the scripture to our kindergarteners each year at this time. We are also committed to discipling new believers in a special children’s class. We want children to grow up knowing that Jesus is their Friend as well as Savior, and that in spite of their sin, God loves them and offers salvation. Thank God for adults who work with each age and stage of our children and do not try to prematurely push them into a decision without a profession of faith. In no way do we want to hinder them in their steps toward God, yet we know that they can become “wise for salvation” (2 Timothy 3:15) like young Timothy as they put their faith in Christ. We offer not only Bible teaching but also scripture-centered learning activities, games, and events. Our workers understand that there is more to learning than listening and more to teaching than telling. They are Christian role models for our kids and give their sacri U ovo) MN ee aS aE) LS VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL June 13-17, 9am-12:15pm, for incoming K- 6th grade.
