A Duck's tale

July 9, 2018


We are looking forward to our Vacation Bible School which begins this coming Sunday. Our theme is “Game On!” and I know it is going to be a great week! We are still in need of workers, so see Michael David or Janet Dedmon if you can help us. I always enjoy the excitement and enthusiasm of the children for VBS. It is a great opportunity for us as a church to mold young hearts for the Savior.

In Mark 10, there is a story about those who were bringing children to Jesus to be blessed and the disciples rebuked them. Jesus was upset when he saw this and he said, “Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Verse 16 says, “And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them.”

Please join your Pastor and other leaders in prayer that we will see children come to know Jesus this week. Pray also that those children that already know Jesus will grow in their faith. Please pray for strength for all of our workers. They truly give all they have to make it a special week for the kids.  

We have a group of 19 youth and adults from our church on a mission trip to Ovid, Colorado. Please continue to pray for them that God will do great things. Our group is always a great blessing to the Baptist Church that is there in Ovid. We pray for souls to be saved and that our group will be an encouragement to the Pastor and the Church.

See you Sunday with a Bible in my hand and a message in my heart…..
