Join Us For the Wacky World of Water

Join us for the Wacky World of Water

Hey kids! This summer we’re planning FUN for you!

It begins on a Friday night and a Saturday morning in June with the Wacky World of Water Vacation Bible School weekend.

 

Friday, June 24th
from 6:00-8:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 25th
from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

 

With WATER as our theme, we’ll have a BLAST singing and dancing and crafting and snacking and playing together. Of course, we’ll be very serious about what God has to say to us as we study some WATERY lessons from the Bible. So, if you finished Kindergarten this year all the way through finishing 5th
grade this year, we welcome you to get wet with us! We do need you to register with important medical and contact information in order to attend.

 

After a full morning of fun and study on Saturday, we’ll gather together outside at 11:00 a.m. where we’ll LET THE GAMES BEGIN  with all-out hilarious, soaking-wet craziness that concludes with a huge water balloon battle. To dry off, we’ll enjoy hamburgers and sides picnic-style. Your mom and dad or guardian are invited to pick you up at 12:15 p.m. and enjoy popsicles with us.

 

We won’t be getting soaked on Friday evening, but, kids, you should plan to wear old clothes that can get wet and dirty on Saturday. Make sure to pack a towel for and some sunscreen. A hat would keep the sun off your head and make you look cool.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

Stay tuned for the rest of the summer to see what other FUN stuff we plan to do.

 

 



From the Pastor’s Pen

In John 15:13, we see that the supreme act of love is laying down one’s life for his friends. 

Memorial Day is the day we honor and remember the sacrifices of those who died that we may have the blessed liberties endowed to us by God.

In the early days of our country, Memorial Day was celebrated by holding church services, which were filled, and stores were closed.  Now, as is the case for many things, there is a reversal of this tradition.

In the First Century, church services were held on the vaults of Martyrs.  The attention of such services is very much like the decorating of the monuments of our fallen, and on a much deeper level, it reminds us of the faithful love shown by the women of the disciples who “came to the tomb early”.

We are to teach the next generation the meanings of our celebrations and feasts.  God spoke to Moses concerning the Passover, “This day shall be to you a memorial… And it shall be when your children ask, ‘What do you mean by this service?’, you shall tell them it is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord.”

Later God spoke to Paul concerning the greater Passover and the greater Deliverer… Christ our Passover, is sacrificed for us.  And as we keep the memorial of our Lord Jesus Christ sacrifice for us, we are assured of His presence as we instruct our children of the memorial.  And thereby His final commission is given to us: “Making Disciples of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age” Matthew 28:19-20

So let us keep our feast, our memorial days, hail the day, and share the blessing.
 

Pastor John
