Our Vacation Bible School theme was "Rolling River Rampage."  Each day we journeyed down the river.  We found Adventure, Acceptance, Joy, Rest and Peace. Our Paddle Captain was Brenda Radford and our Mercy Neal was Romper the River Otter.

We are thankful for our adult volunteers. 

Our Mission Project was making Manna bags and we made 160 bags.  Our students wrote notes for each bag.

Worship and Prayer Group

I am inviting you to be part of our “Worship and Prayer Group” every Thursday 7:00pm. We can consider the example of the King David who was a man after God’s own heart, and he knew how to pray. He talked to God all the time, not just once a week. He also talked to him when he laid on his bed at night and when he covered his couch with tears. David just had this way of talking to God all the time. He wasn’t afraid to tell God how he felt and he wasn’t afraid to make his requests known to God. One thing is certain – David always expected God to answer him. And he waited in expectation. As you read through the Psalms you will see over and over again that David had complete assurance that God would intervene and grant him his request.
 
In the New Testament, Paul the apostle said, "Pray without ceasing". Did he really mean it? I believe that he did. The older I get, the simpler life gets. That does not mean it is "easy." I speak of spiritual simplicity, the kind of attitude which gets right to the root of what really matters. I believe that Paul meant what he said to the Christians at Thessalonica and that his words are important to those who bear the name Christian today. We need to pray.
 
Psalm 5 says: “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”
 
See you Thursday.,

Saul
