It’s hard to believe, but VBS is almost coming to a close. Thanks for your prayers for all the kids attending, the youth helpers, the teachers, and so many more volunteers that it takes to make the week work. It has been a week full of stories, crafts, jump houses, snacks, music, building relationships, and learning more and more about the love of Jesus. What a great way to spend a week!
As we dip in and out of high temperatures, it can be easy (and appropriate) to think a lot about getting out of the heat and wishing for cooler days. I hope you are also able to reflect on God’s deep and abiding love for you. We find ourselves in many different circumstances and life stages and with varying abilities and challenges. But the thing that unites us is God’s love that is deep and abiding.
I look forward to time with you this Sunday. At 10 a.m. we’ll hear our VBS kids sing their theme song, and at all of our services (7:50 a.m., 10 a.m., and 5 p.m.) we’ll pray for our CARAVAN students who leave early this Saturday for a week of learning and service with the Navajo Nation. And let’s keep them in prayer until they return to us the afternoon of Sunday, June 30.
