Yesterday evening wrapped up our SpaceQuest VBS and I’d say we had a successful landing with this year’s VBS. While VBS is always a great time to be with the kids…all of our volunteers went above and beyond this year as we launched the whole week with our Community Festival. So many were willing to go above and beyond to make the festival and VBS happen. Several church members were talking about the busy week and all agreed that it was so worth it!! We were able to see more kids this year that were not connected in any way to our church than ever before. That’s the start of a great thing!

As we begin follow up and planning ahead towards how God might continue using our church to reach new families, we need to pray against those obstacles that will keep us from that objective. It’s easy to quickly get back into our normal calendar events…but I am hopeful that we will continue praying about those “outside of the box” type events like the Community Festival. We also need to pray against distractions and weariness from all of this hard work. So many within our Enoree family gave their all and we might be tempted to choose to sit back now and reflect on a job well done…but we still have our “Summer of Service” events ahead!

As we closed out our VBS Week, our Minister of Music invited the kids to watch the closing video. The challenge on the video was to go out and share about our mission (Jesus, the way, truth, and life). I think we did a great job with that over the past couple of weeks and can only build upon what we’ve just done!
