Now on to VBS!

All in all, the water cost roughly $125, of course, plus tax. To rent two booths at the block party cost $85. We had 1,000 bags printed with the name of the church, and website information at $0.25 per bag for a total of $250 a bag, with tax and shipping to come to $305 for the bags.  The total cost for the block party came to $505, which was money given here each Sunday, but the evangelistic outreach – priceless. Although, at the time of this writing, none of the bags, or water have been given out, we know from the past, that at the end of the night, the majority of both will be gone. We also know that there will be many people who will say “I had no idea that   ya’ll were down there”, and with any luck we will see some of those individuals in the future at services here. Our summer is off to a great start.

We are plainly instructed to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel” (Mk 16:15). Conveniently we spend time each week here in our worship to God. It is important that we are  here at every service as God has commanded and expects (Heb 9:26), however it is equally important we seek opportunities to speak to, invite, and encourage others to attend. Jesus said His mission was to “seek and save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10) and we know by precept and example that best be our mission as well.

We cannot all attend the block party, we all have things we can do in order to invite others to be with us. Our Vacation Bible School is exactly two weeks away. Can you believe it! Two weeks from today we pray this church building will be full of kids who will provide us with the opportunity to teach, and reach other families and individuals.  Our kids have been requested via a VBS challenge to invite seven friends with them. Who will you be inviting? Who will attend VBS 2010 at the Logan Martin church of Christ because of the efforts you and I have put forth?

All things are ready. The flyers are on the back table. The teachers have prepared their lessons. The decorations are beginning to go up. The kids from Logan Martin are ready. Make your plans to be with us June 19th-22nd for our VBS, and make SURE you bring someone with you.
