VBS 2020

   

Building on the love of Jesus, showing kids the foundation that lasts.

Look up--way up.  That's where we're headed.  Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery.  Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky.  These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built.  Yet they all began the same way--with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly a solid foundation.    
During VBS, kids will discover that Jesus' love provides a foundation that will last.  When the storms of life come, they'll need the One who will be with them to the end of the age.  When anxiety sets in, they'll need the assurance that true worth comes from being a child of God, not from what other people think about them.  Whey they feel unworthy, they can remember that Jesus loved them enough to die for them.  They'll learn to be wise builders who continue in what they've learned and firmly believe.  And they will discover that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion.  We're all a work in progress.  Life is a hard hat zone.  But just wait 'til you see what God will do! 
Motto:  Jesus! Our strong foundation!
 
Theme verse:  Philippians 1:6 (CSB)
I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will
carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ
 
Christ Connection:
The foundation of the gospel is faith.  Jesus lived a perfect life and died the death we deserve.
By grace, God saves everyone who trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord.
