Smashing Block Party Success Now To VBS

So I am no good at math, and I admit that. Some cases had 24 bottles. Some had 28 bottles, some even had 35 bottles of water in them (we will say an average of 30 per case by my math skill count). Looks like maybe 600-700 bottles brought by members of the church, another about 500 were purchased by the church , totaling about 1,100 – 1,200 bottles of water total taken to the block party. We brought back about 400 bottles, so somewhere between 700 and 800 bottles of water distributed. At least according to my math skills. Each bottle of water was accompanied by an “invitation” card to visit the Logan Martin church of Christ.

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 20th-23rd for our VBS, and make SURE you bring someone with you.
