This week, I had the honor of seeing that idea of family at work. In a few short weeks we will hold our annual Vacation Bible School. We will have a whole host of new friends descend upon this place as we seek to share Jesus’ message of love and grace with each of them. To make sure we do this well, to ensure these children hear what we are sharing with them, we decorate our campus.
To decorate a campus of this size takes a great amount of work and even more styrofoam! This year’s theme is Cave Quest and it centers around the image of caves. I have watched as volunteers have cut out stalactites and stalagmites, moths and butterflies, cave walls and lizards. I have seen the amazing work our family has done as we have taken those cutouts and through artistry and paint, they have been brought to life. Each person that has helped has played their part and the result is breathtaking.
I am so grateful to Faye and her team for their labor of love, for their dedication to our children, and for their faithfulness in bringing all of this about with such excellence. I want to invite you to enjoy the pictures below and as you scroll through them, say a little prayer for each piece and the role it will play in some child’s faith journey, as well as a prayer of thankfulness for the many hands that made it possible.
My friends, when we work together, when we live out our faith and this life as a family, we can truly change this world and be those advance foretastes of God’s Kingdom that we were all created to be.
Have a great week and I will see you Sunday!
