Dear Nature Coast Family,
We are getting so close to our awesome week of Vacation Bible School: July 16th - 20th!
We have almost reached capacity with our sign-ups. As of now, 50 kids from the community will be joining us for 5 days of fun and adventure, as our wonderful group of volunteers spends time loving them and teaching them about Jesus! Our Shipwrecked theme Bible School will lead them through six interactive stations, pointing them to five truths that they can "survive" on for a lifetime:
When you're lonely...Jesus rescues!
When you worry...Jesus rescues!
When you struggle...Jesus rescues!
When you do wrong...Jesus rescues!
When you're powerless...Jesus rescues!
Through several parables and stories, the kids will learn of the great love that God has for us.If we follow His beacon of truth and light, we will never be lost in the storm...
There is always hope when Jesus is our captain!
Each day involves many exciting activities the kids will never forget! They will rotate through Craft Cove, Shipwrecked Games, Tropical Treats, Bible Discovery, God Sightings and Island Hut Living. Each stop will reinforce the day's main Bible point. This is such a great opportunity for the kids to grow in relationship with God, each other, and the church body of Nature Coast. We can't wait!
We are still seeking some help in preparing for our VBS.
Please visit Shipwrecked table in the narthex to check out the latest updates.
You can help us prepare in two ways: Loans and Donations
Donations: We need lots of items for our VBS stations, such as non-perishable food items, paper goods, craft supplies, etc. See the Life Preserver Tags hanging near the table to see if there is anything you can pick up and return to us at the church. The item is on the front of the tag, and instructions are on the back. Please sign your name on the Donations Sign-Up sheet if you take a tag, to let us know which item you will be bringing.
Loans: There are many items that we are seeking to borrow You may have these lying around your home or yard! Please grab a Decor Loans list from the table and take it home with you. Items can be brought to church on Sunday, June 24th or Sunday, July 1st. If you need to arrange a drop-off, just contact Amy at the information below. Please mark all loaned items in a legible fashion with your name. Item tags are also provided on the VBS table for you to use for marking your items.
All of the support we have received from our Nature Coast Family is so greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all who have contributed to the success of Vacation Bible School so far!
If you have any questions, contact Amy at the info below.
