As we approach the summer, there are events that we always look forward to with great anticipation. For some it may be a fourth of July picnic or perhaps it’s a family vacation. No doubt your childhood has helped to frame the amount of anticipation you experience when looking ahead. Some of my favorite childhood activities included summer camp and Vacation Bible School. These activities meant so much to me as a child, that I have continued to support these types of events my entire adult life. There is a true satisfaction like no other seeing a child experience God’s love for the first time in a way that prompts them to accept Jesus as their savior.
Jesus gave us clear instructions to spread the gospel to all and to give special attention to children. If you compiled a list of ways to accomplish both instructions, VBS and summer camp would be at the top. Your support of these two very important ministries is what makes them possible, both from a financial perspective and a volunteer effort. It is also vital that we show our support by making sure that our children view them as a priority. Many activities compete for their time during the summer, but few may have the lasting effect that a few hours at VBS or a weekend at summer camp can provide.
If you’d like to help in any way but aren’t sure how, reach out to me and I will be sure that we figure it out together as we partner to connect children to God’s kingdom one at a time.
