HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
Chuck Swindoll: "There is no more influential role on earth than a mother."
A story is told of four men arguing over the best Bible translation.
The first man said that he liked the King James Version of the Bible best because of the beauty and reverence of the language. The second man insisted the New American Standard Bible was better because of its accuracy to the original text. The third said he preferred the New International Version because of its readability. The fourth man thought for a moment then said: "Personally, I have always preferred my mother's translation." After the other three stopped chuckling, he responded, "Yes, she translated it. She translated each page of the Bible into life. It is the most convincing translation I ever saw!" God Bless all the mothers!
What a great VBS! We enrolled 195 with an average attendance of 153. The church provided a free meal each night for those who attended. The meals were delicious. The youth and children all received free school supplies at the end of each night VBS.
We learned how humankind was divided into different groups of people having their own language and culture. The most important lesson was the gospel. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The students learned how Jesus Christ came to save every person who will repent and receive Him as their Lord and Savior.
I especially want to thank all the teachers and workers who served during VBS. They taught their lessons and loved our guests. I am privileged and blessed to pastor such a wonderful group of believers.
The real thanks and praise goes to the Lord. He is the one who blessed our school.
If you would like to know more about our church, please call me at 540-365-2427. I would be glad to share the gospel with you.
In His grace, Pastor Billy Shively
