We are thankful for another great night at Treasure Island. We had a total attendance of 30 children. Pastor Ben did not have to get a pie in the face once again for which he was probably thankful! This was our final night and it ended with great celebration. The pirates had gotten the key to the fair and as of Wednesday, there would be no fair!! But alas, the good guys were able to recapture the key and all was well with the world once again!
There were many very good things about this week for which we are thankful. We were able to make contact with several new families and other families that previously had contact with our church. The children had a lot of fun learning songs about the Gospel and hearing the gospel preached each night. Pastor Ben would do an object lesson each night that related to our memory verse for the night and then challenge the children about the Gospel and about their relationship with Christ. We are happy to report that one young man came to faith in Christ last night after the lesson! The focus of this week was not on numbers for attendance or for salvation decisions. This week was all about gospel centered ministry and we are sure that ongoing ministry with families will take place as a result of what transpired this week and we praise the Lord for His work in that way.
Tonight, the parents are invited to come to our closing program where the children will be sharing the songs they’ve learned all week. Following the program, we have the VBS fair complete with games, prizes, a dunk tank, and a jumpy house. Please pray for us as we seek to develop Gospel focused relationships with these families and as we finish our VBS for good following tonight’s events.
Here are some pictures from last night as well as a few from earlier in the week. Thanks so much for your prayers!
