A request for VBS...

And NO that is NOT a STD... Its VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL!!! How many of you out there remember your childhood VBS experiences????? In preparations of this years VBS my wonderfully awesome coordinator came up with a list of prayer request to hand out to all our voulenteers...Thought i might ask you to pray as well.

VBS preparation:
-order & structure in preparing curriculum and classrooms
-favor in receiving supplies & donations
-RESPONSIBLE, spirit-filled adults to volunteer

Prepare volunteers:
-to minister to the childresn and their families
-to be patient, to show kindness and love to use wisdom
-to coorperate & to be courteous to church staff, VBS Directors, and other volunteers

Prepare the children:
-to receive Christ as their Savior
-to be excited about participating
-to take the love of Jesus home to their families

Prepare the Parents/Guardians:
-to send their child to VBS
-to be punctual in dropping off and picking up their children
-to witness & experience the love of Christ @ VBS

VBS Conclusion
-Salvation of chilren and their families
-Growth in families' relationships with Christ and each other
-REST for all church staff and volunteers

I would LOVE to hear about experiences that you had at VBS when you were a child. What do you wish they would have done or things that you HATED that they did. Its always intresting to me get a perspective of what we thought of as children.

7"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8
