"So we built the wall. And the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work." Nehemiah 4:6
We're not building a wall, but the work before us is great! 375 students from the Byron Elementary School received an invite to next week's Vacation Bible School. You can rest assured, many have never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. Those children come from homes, many of which the Gospel of Jesus Christ may have never crossed the threshold of the front door.
These last days of preparation before VBS officially starts, I hope that you will join me in praying for the work to be done this week, for the workers, for the children, and for the Good News to reach them. Pray that there will be a mind to work. That, as with the Israelites in the days of Nehemiah, the work will be accomplished, God will receive the glory, and the Kingdom will have grown in number!
If you are able to come out and join us next week, please do! Maybe you didn't want to commit to the whole week or weren't sure if you could. Maybe you just have an evening or two, come on out! We can put you to work! Sign your children up, bring them for a night or two if that's all you can do! Don't just hear about what goes on, be a a part of it!
Sunday, June 17th at 10am, we will gather with the Byron Baptist Church at their facility for a day of celebrating the Lord and what He has done!
The Village Church and the Byron Baptist Church congregations will be joining as one for the day! We will be inviting the families of the children who attended during the week and pray that they will join us for this special day!
Grace & Peace,
