VBS Prayer Guide – July Pastor’s Notes

    Pastor Mark Elkins

Vacation Bible School is here!!!  The set construction and the drama teams have already begun and the various teachers, assistants, and kitchen volunteers are finalizing their plans.  In just a matter of days, we will have the privilege of sharing the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ with the children of our community. 

     But, even with all the planning, meetings, and preparations, we cannot forget the most important part of anything we do for the glory of God:  Prayer!!!  Every day, it is important that we dedicate ourselves to praying and seeking God’s will through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  But this is especially true during our VBS, so I have put together a prayer calendar below that I hope will help focus our efforts and ensure our success:


Monday (July 9th)…Pray for the moms, dads, grannies, grandpas, memaws and pepaws, who are trying to decide whether to bring their children to our VBS.

Tuesday (July 10th)…Pray for travel mercies for all the parents and kids that will be coming to Grace to sign-up for the first night of VBS.

Wednesday (July 11th)…Pray for all the teachers and assistants in each of the age groups as they journey from Eternity Past to Eternity Future with the Alpha & the Omega, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Thursday (July 12th)…Pray for the snack, games, and craft teams, as they teach the children that following Jesus is fun.

Friday (July 13th)…Pray that all of the volunteers will have the energy to finish strong.

Saturday (July 14th)…Pray for all the volunteers who will be setting up for and serving at our Family Fun Day.

Sunday (July 15th)…Pray for the children and parents, who have been touched by the love and Gospel of Jesus, that they will join us to worship Him and praise His holy name.

Tomorrow! Time Lab VBS Begins!

Set your watches! Be excited! A time-traveling adventure begins TOMORROW at 5:45pm at Grace Baptist Church with TIME LAB VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL!

Vacation Bible School runs through Tuesday, July 10th–Friday, July 13th, from 5:45pm–8:30pm, followed by the very special VBS/Community Family Fun Day on Saturday, July 14th, from 10am – 2pm.

Volunteers: Please, arrive at VBS each night at 5:20pm for prayer and announcements in the Fellowship Hall; and park on the side of the building or the back row of the parking lot. Thank you for your help and ministry service teaching kids about Jesus and His Word!

We still need some help for our VBS/Community Family Fun Day this Saturday. Set-up begins at 8am, the special program is at 10am, lunch is served around 11am, outdoor fun goes until 2pm, and then we clean up. Any amount of time you can give is appreciated.
