Created by God; Built for a Purpose.
"Pray that the word of the Lord may speed ahead" 2 Thessalonians 3:1
Tomorrow morning, bright and early, close to 100 volunteers will arrive at Stone Hill and prepare for the first day of VBS camp. Meanwhile, parents of 225 kids will check-in their children. The opening program is set to begin at 9:00am, and before kids and volunteers know it, this great and wild and wonderful week will be over. I've asked Mary McCormack, our beloved sister and head of children's ministries, to give us direction on how to pray for VBS Camp:
Psalm 71:18 says, O God, do not forsake me until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to those to come.
This coming week, we are praying this of the Lord – that He would bless every aspect of VBS, as we proclaim to a whole new generation God’s power.
We are welcoming the largest number of kids to camp ever – 225 children! We know about 20 are brand new to hearing about Jesus. Please pray…
- against the distractions that can make it so hard for children to hear and understand
- for hearts to be eternally changed
- for many children to give their lives to Christ
- for our crew and assistant crew leaders as they share the Gospel with each child
- for our volunteers to finish strong
- for Becca, Mary, and Matt to stay focused on the most important things
- for families to be impacted
Look for prayer updates throughout the week; and especially pray for Thursday when we call children to put their faith in Christ.
Please join us in praying for VBS, today, after the second service. See the Church Notes’ page for details.
