Thankful Service - July 7, 2009

Well, night one of Vacation Bible School is in the books. If you were not there, you need to come and join the fun that the sixty-six kids and thirty-eight adults had. You have to see our very own Rob Wright and the antics that he brings to the stage. It was such a great time. I hope you all can make it for Sunday night’s closing program. It is sure to be a hit!

The volunteers for last night was outstanding. There is still room for more adults, though. Gina Wright and Amy Land are always looking for a few good men and women to serve. This is an easy way to serve God and your fellow man. There is nursery duty, leading kids around, craft duty, recreation duty, helping with the music, making sure the bathrooms have all the supplies in them, counting money, fixing snacks, policing the place. There are always things for somebody to do.

How else do we show the next generation that serving is a vital part of ministry? If we don’t serve, who will? If we don’t teach the younger generation to serve, who will? 2nd Corinthians 9:12 states “This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” Isn’t that how we want to show ourselves? Anything you do, whether it be pick up trash, sing in the choir, work with the kids, volunteer to help with communion, is supplying a need and expresses your thanks to God. Vacation Bible School is just one of many ways we can do that. So come out tonight and help out.
