AMONG FRIENDS
With Robert Prater

It’s that time of year again!  Our annual Vacation Bible School program is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 13 and will run through Friday, July 17.  Activities will start each day at 9:00 a.m. and end at 11:45 a.m.  We will once again have a special concluding Friday Night Open House program at 7:00 p.m.

The theme for this year’s VBS is: Wanted by God.  Jesus said, “……..Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14NIV)  Children from age three through the fifth grade will be studying and learning about different Bible characters where God called and wanted them to obey Him and do the right things even in difficult situations.  Children will experience a “class rotation system” that leads them on a great adventure through a dramatic telling of each day’s Bible story in the auditorium, along with other learning stations which will include application and story rooms, crafts, refreshments, games, plus lots of singing, and of course puppets!

Soon many of the building’s classrooms, hallways, fellowship room and even the stage in the auditorium will be transformed into fun-filled western theme decorations and exciting Bible scenes of the past.  There are plenty of opportunities for you to personally be involved.  Don’t just sit back and watch others do the work or wait to be asked.  Volunteers are always greatly welcomed!  I am always so grateful for the many, many people here at Central who participate to make this such a great work.

We’ll soon have available both VBS invitational postcards to mail out and enrollment forms to fill out.  Friends, VBS is a great opportunity to reach out to your non-religious friends and neighbors.  Please continue to pray and work towards making this year’s VBS a tremendous success.
