What a fantastic VBS!

What a fantastic week we had last week with Vacation Bible School! I believe we had the highest average attendance of children we have had in many years, but not only that, we had an amazing group of enthusiastic volunteers teaching and serving all week long. As much as I love seeing so many children learning and having fun, I also love seeing adults of all ages working together to invest in the next generation. A huge shout out and thank you to Whitney Brand and her team of volunteers for leading us in an incredibly impactful week. Join me in praying for all these children and their families to take to heart the truths of God’s Word they have learned through VBS.
 
Last week’s VBS was the first of many great ministry opportunities this summer. Later this month our Student Ministry will be going to Alabama for Summer Camp and next month our Preteens will be headed to Riverbend for their Summer Camp. Be intentional in asking God to prepare the hearts of all who will attend camps this summer. I am very grateful for a church who invests so much in the lives of children and students, along with their families, to point them to Jesus and help them grow in their faith. We also have a church-wide service project at Beautiful Feet coming up in late July as well as a night of worship (Holypalooza) in addition to all of our regular weekly ministries.
 
My family missed being with our wonderful church family yesterday. We are in Birmingham, Alabama for the Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting this week. It is good to have my family travel with me as we will enjoy a few days of vacation together later in the week. Thanks to Cody Fleenor for preaching in my absence yesterday, and for being a huge part of helping lead VBS alongside his fiancée Whitney. Summer is off to a great start at South Hills, but I believe the best is yet to come. Have a wonderful week church family and be a blessing to others in the name of Jesus Christ.

Praying for you,
Pastor Chris
