Vacation Bible School is tonight!
Tonight—Monday, August 23—we begin one of the best ministries of the year for us at Chain of Lakes—Vacation Bible School! I still remember the wonderful Bible School we held last August at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. For two nights last year we received a vision of what our children’s ministries could look like.
I’m anticipating an even better Vacation Bible School this year. We have a strong number of kids pre-registered; all of our volunteer positions are filled. Now it is time to enjoy this ministry!
Bible School will start with a FREE meal at 5:45 p.m. at the Lino Lakes Senior Center, 1189 Main Street in Lino Lakes. After dinner I will welcome the kids and share with them our service project for the week. I can’t share what it is, but let me say that it has something to do with “rolls.” Kellie Burriss will then lead the kids in our first Kid’s Choir. After singing the kids will break into three groups. Each group will enjoy games, crafts, and a Bible Story.
I’ve been encouraging all adults at Chain of Lakes Church to invite the children on their street to attend Bible School. I think that two families on our block are attending Bible School. Take some time right now to call a family on your street to invite that family to Bible School. If you need to offer the family a ride—consider doing that. Vacation Bible School is one of the easiest ministries in which to invite someone outside our congregation.
Please feel free to come by the Senior Center tonight to enjoy the energy of Vacation Bible School. We will be there until 8:00 p.m. Please also take some time today to keep this wonderful ministry in your prayers!!
