Say "YES!" to Making an Impact!
I have a favorite booth at my favorite little coffee place that I love to hang out in each morning. This is where I do my quiet time, catch up on emails, or like this morning, work through some projects like VBS curriculum. This morning as I had VBS books, notebooks, DVDs, and my computer strewn all over the table a gentle, kind grandpa came and sat with me. He said, “What are you so focused on and working so diligently on, honey?” To which I answered him, “Vacation Bible School curriculum. I want to make sure the children who attend learn as much about our Jesus as possible this week!”
This kind, gentle grandpa, with tears in his eyes, then began to tell me all about his favorite VBS memory. The year was 1956 and he had a sweet lady who taught him how to make candles. This lady spoke with love. She showed up each morning with a smile on her face. She shared the love of Jesus with this man. She made an impact that has forever changed this man’s life…even 49 years later!
We need men and women who will, like the sweet lady in 1956, say “Yes!” to serving our children. We need men and women to make an eternal impact on the children of our church, our community, and our world. We need men and women who love Jesus to come and share His love with others.
Will you say, “YES!” to joining our team for Vacation Bible School? If so, please contact me so I can find the perfect role for you!
