Vacation Bible School

You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

For Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?  And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-15

Jeremiah 29:13 is our key verse for this year’s Vacation Bible School beginning on June 6 and lasting for 5 powerful days. It says that God can be found if they search for Him.  Romans 10:14 says that they cannot seek One that they have never heard of and they cannot hear unless they are told. 

This is why we do Vacation Bible School. It’s not so we can fill our church with our church kids, which is great because so many of them ask Jesus to be their Savior during this time, but it’s to reach lost kids and their families.  

It is the responsibility of each one of us to bring our lost or seeking friends to church. I remember talking to Dr. Huff long before we found a Pastor. We were talking about church growth. He said, “You can get the best preacher in the world, but unless your members start bringing their friends and coworkers, you will not grow.” He said on numerous occasions that Eastern Hills Baptist Church was one of the best-kept secrets in Montgomery.

We are called to reach lost people in our communities. YOU are called to reach your neighbors, coworkers, and family. You are responsible for their soul. I am responsible for those who surround me. 

Our VBS theme is Digging to find the truth about God. Children will be using their Bibles to dig for facts about the Prophesies from Isaiah that were fulfilled in Jesus. They will be “visiting” actual archaeological sites that prove Jesus is who He said He was.

Unless we invite them, they will not hear and they will not be able to believe it. We have allowed Covid to interrupt the church. Not just our church but churches across America. Our people have found other things to do on Sunday. It’s time to reach our kids, families, and neighbors. It is time we make church the number one priority during the week and not just something we do with our leftover time. The prayer of our staff is that today, you will start praying for your family, friends, and coworkers to know Jesus this year. Maybe it will be through our Vacation Bible School.
