"The Gospel cannot live, fight, conquer without prayer-prayer unceasing, instant and ardent." E. M. Bounds
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)
What a great VBS! We enrolled 195 with an average attendance of 153. The church provided a free meal each night for those who attended. The meals were delicious. The youth and children all received free school supplies at the end of each night VBS.
We learned how humankind was divided into different groups of people having their own language and culture. The most important lesson was the gospel. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The students learned how Jesus Christ came to save every person who will repent and receive Him as their Lord and Savior.
I especially want to thank all the teachers and workers who served during VBS. They taught their lessons and loved our guests. I am privileged and blessed to pastor such a wonderful group of believers.
The real thanks and praise goes to the Lord. He is the one who blessed our school.
If you would like to know more about our church, please call me at 540-365-2427. I would be glad to share the gospel with you.
In His grace, Pastor Billy Shively
1 Chronicles 4:9-10
If we desired the blessings of God as much as God wanted to bless us, our cups would be full and running over. Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life; and that they might have it more abundantly." Jabez believed God enough to ask for His blessings. What have you asked God for this week?
