VBS Week

Sermon: Where is Your Post of Duty?

Ezekiel 3:10-19 (NLT)

10 Then he added, “Son of man, let all my words sink deep into your own heart first. Listen to them carefully for yourself. 11 Then go to your people in exile and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says!’ Do this whether they listen to you or not.”
12 Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard a loud rumbling sound behind me. (May the glory of the Lord be praised in his place!)[a] 13 It was the sound of the wings of the living beings as they brushed against each other and the rumbling of their wheels beneath them.

14 The Spirit lifted me up and took me away. I went in bitterness and turmoil, but the Lord’s hold on me was strong. 15 Then I came to the colony of Judean exiles in Tel-abib, beside the Kebar River. I was overwhelmed and sat among them for seven days.

A Watchman for Israel

16 After seven days the Lord gave me a message. He said, 17 “Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. 18 If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths. 19 If you warn them and they refuse to repent and keep on sinning, they will die in their sins. But you will have saved yourself because you obeyed me.

VBS: Bible Characters

Four volunteers played the role of different Bible characters and told their story. Hoge Greene dressed as Moses. Wanda Latham was dressed as Sarah, Abraham’s wife. Greg Gee dressed as David. Sharon Myers dressed as Esther.

The finale for the night was lighting the bonfire. Don’t worry, before setting the bonfire the fire department was called to notify them of the controlled burn. After the fire had burned down somewhat hot coals were pulled out and they roasted marshmellows and made s’mores.

VBS: Invocation

Vacation Bible School at Christian Heights was yesterday. I know I enjoyed myself. VBS this year centered around three main activities arts n’ crafts, teaching the basics of Bible characters, and a bonfire after dark.

More photos coming shortly. VBS: Bible Characters posted now.

Worship: July 12

Vacation Bible School is in two weeks, July 25-26. Organizers are still looking for more help. See Tim, Hoge, Lou, or Amy.
