“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” - John 8:12
Next week, starting on June 26th, is Vacation Bible Camp! Stevie is preparing for a fun week of passing on our faith to our children. This year the theme is Interstellar. Just as the stars bring light to the night sky, so Jesus brings light to the darkness in our lives. Jesus is the light in our lives so that we can be a light in the lives of others. The kids will be learning these lessons through a variety of Bible stories. I am helping out with the Bible story teaching and am delving deeply into the curriculum this week. Stevie is also doing a deep dive into the curriculum for the entire week, gathering supplies, getting ready to lead, and preparing volunteers. This huge undertaking is a blessing to our children. It wouldn’t be possible without everyone’s support and hard work!
Please keep Stevie and me and all the volunteers in your prayers as we prepare for Bible teaching, leadership, games, snacks, and all around fun. Please also pray for the kids! VBC is one of the ways that Briarwood passes down our faith and connects with kids in the wider community. It is a time when kids can encounter Jesus for the first time, or deepen their faith. It is also a way for kids to deepen their friendships with each other as they begin their summer break. Praise God for VBC!
Grace and peace, Rev. Sarina
