Get Ready!

Get Ready!

    VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is three weeks away. (That gasp you heard is coming from our VBS workers!) VBS is a big deal at Westside. VBS will be June 18-22 from 9 a.m. until noon each day. VBS is for children in Pre-K4 (birthdate before 8-31-13) through 8th grade. VBS is one of the greatest events at our church every year. Now is the time to get ready!

    GET READY THROUGH PRAYER. Put VBS on your personal prayer list. Put VBS on your Connection Group prayer list. I have been putting it on the Wednesday night prayer meeting list. Pray for good weather. Pray for our workers. Pray for our students. Pray for souls to be saved.

    GET READY THROUGH INVITING. Invite the children who live in your neighborhood. Invite the children of your work associates. Invite the children who go to school with you. Invite the children who play on your ball team. Many people will come if they are invited. Who do you know?

    GET READY THROUGH HELPING. It takes a lot of workers to have a successful VBS. Of course, many have already volunteered to help and the hour is late, but perhaps there is something you could do to help. For the safety of our children, every helper must have an up-to-date background check.

    SINCE THIS IS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND we will not have evening services today. Instead, we will meet at Neptune Beach at 4 p.m. for our annual Beach Baptism. A map with directions to the baptism site is in your bulletin. Please be on time because we will begin on time! See you at the beach!

    PS: The next Membership Class is next Sunday, June 3, at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Please call the Church Office at 781-0618 or go online at wbcjax.com to make your reservation.
