The VBS 2012 theme verse was Psalm 147:5 which reads "Our Lord is great, vast in power; His understanding is infinite." The Lord has shown His greatness this week at Walnut Street Baptist Church. Thanks to all the workers who volunteered their time, hearts and lives for this week. During VBS this week kids heard the gospel, some for the first time. There was one preschool child who asked in preschool music who God was. The Lord gave us the opportunity to step into the lives of kids who now know a little more about Jesus. Praise the Lord for the opportunity of sharing the gospel with kids!
I am so proud of the kids who came to VBS this week, not only did they come to VBS but they worked hard to memorize Bible verses and bring mission offering. In the childrenʼs building you can see evidence of Bible memorization. There are clouds all over the wall of the entrance of the childrenʼs building that represent a child who memorized a Bible verse. Please go read all the names. As part of the missions effort of VBS we collected money to purchase Bibles for people in China. The children bought 105 Bibles to give as a gift to the people of China through the organization Go with God Global.
Thank you again to all the Bible study teachers, special classroom teachers, helpers, and snack makers. We could not have done it without you.
