Pastor Mike’s Weekly E-News

Hi, Hopesters-

Anticipation dominates the halls of Hope as we make final preparations for Vacation Bible School!It all starts this Monday at 9:00 am, and we’ll be more than ready to go!

For several months, our wise and compassionate Children’s Ministry staff, along with a volunteer team of highly creative song leaders, has been planning and organizing.

Two days ago, I was blown away to see hundreds of VBS volunteers at the first of three training sessions.

Yesterday, we wrapped up a full afternoon of video shoots for the VBS skits that will help bring timeless Bible stories into the hearts of a new generation of believers (I don’t want to give away too much, but our theme is Gettin’ Reel with Jesus and I did get to ride a giant white limo and walk the red carpet today … hey, it’s for the kids!).

Why do so many people around here work so hard to host what just might be the largest VBS in the nation? It really is for the kids, every single one of them who will be welcomed and cared for in small groups from the moment they check in to the moment they are safely checked out at the end of each session – so that each child who shows up can get to know the Bible better.

There’s still time to register for VBS! Thousands of kids will worship God with unchecked enthusiasm. They will learn about the everlasting love of Jesus Christ. And, they will be filled with the Holy Spirit’s love and joy.

It just doesn’t get much better than that. Anywhere.

Come and see!
