Dear SBC family and friends,
With much prayer and consideration I have decided to cancel Vacation Bible School this year. I have been mulling this over in thought and prayer the last couple months and finally had to make decision not to move forward today. Based on where our volunteer base is, social distancing guidelines for our kids, cleaning of facility and all objects which are touched, mask wearing...etc it is not feasible. This has been an extremely hard decision to make because I love your families and have looked forward to spending the week with you. I am bummed and wish it were different. With that said though as one of your Pastors I would be hard pressed not to encourage you to get on "Mission". This is a great opportunity for you to reach out and be an evangelist. Invite a neighbor to your home, ask some friends to do a miniature vbs. Do a short lesson, make a craft, jump on the trampoline, go on a hike, have some water balloons and sprinkler time, all the while being purposeful in conversation and interaction. Get out of your comfort zone and be creative. Have conversations revolving around life and the Gospel.
"always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence"- 1 Peter 3:15
Here is a great resource to stream and engage
Remember our mission as Christians is to share the Gospel and make disciples (Matt 28:18-20). You are equipped to share Gods truth because you have the Holy Spirit living in you (Romans 6:10) So be strong and courage for the Lord God is with you (Joshua 1:9)
I love you all and are praying that God uses you in a mighty way this summer.
