Planning for a Super Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is right around the corner! This year’s VBS will explore 4 qualities of the hero of God as we discover how anyone can be God’s hero! The timing of VBS will be June 24th-27th from 6:30-8 PM and will be for all children ages 3 through the 5th grade. If you can help, we are in need of some teachers (15 minutes each night), chaperones to accompany the different groups as they travel from station to station, and people to work the registration table. We will also need as many people as we can to bake/bring cookies for our little heroes! We are planning to have an ice cream social on Thursday the 27th following the closing of VBS so that we can introduce ourselves to th

Hopefilled People Lean on the People of God

I have had to cram into a storm shelter with my neighbors four different times this week. Almost every time a tornado warning comes up on our phone my wife and I grab the kids, walk them over to our neighbors house and climb into the storm shelter with them. It may not be the most comfortable thing in the world to have ten people crammed into a tiny storm shelter, but I’m thankful that these people are my neighbors and that my family is able to lean on them in times of need. This is a good representation of how God created the church to be. I’m afraid we view the church as a group of people that comes together once a week to worship and then avoids each other the rest of the time. THIS. IS N

Hopefilled People See What God Has Provided Them

As a bit of an impatient reader growing up, there was always a temptation to flip to the end of the book, skipping over the boring middle section, to see how the story was going to play out. Before you get upset with me for doing something so barbaric, consider that you may have been doing the same with certain Bible books for years. After Joshua and the people of Israel conquer Jericho and Ai, we are given chapter after chapter discussing the battles Israel fought to overtake the Promised Land and how that land was divided up among the people of God. We typically skip over all of this information and get right into the famous “as for me and my house” verse of chapter 24. This is a mistake,

Extreme Home Makeover

For many years there was a show on TV called Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Every episode a crew would update and renovate the outside of the house and every room inside the house for a family in need. The show aimed to help those who had fallen on hard times by providing them with the best house they possibly could. This idea of providing the best house possible, is one that Christians should think about all the time. In our reading today (1 Kings 6:1-38) we see Solomon spare no expense in providing the best house he could for God. This application for us is pretty straightforward: what kind of house are we providing for God? Are we using the best materials we can? Are we working to be the

Hope for our Future is Found in our Past

I’ve always been amazed with how animals instinctively know where to go during the different phases of their life. Salmon head to their spawning grounds upstream, and birds fly south for the winter. They always seem to remember where to go. Humans on the other hand sometimes have trouble remembering what they were looking for when they walked into a room. This is just one example of many we could give as to why reminders are important. After Israel conquers Jericho and heads into the biggest part of the Promised Land, the Lord commands them to pause for a moment, grab twelve stones and set up a memorial (Joshua 3-4). This memorial was to be a reminder of God’s deliverance of Israel both from
