I must agree with the following statement that comes from Lifeway:

“Vacation Bible School is more than just a week of fun. For many churches, it is the SINGLE MOST EVANGELISTIC OUTREACH EVENT OF THE YEAR. VBS opens the doors of your church to the community and reaches children and their families like nothing else. It connects the people of your church to your neighbors, and it deepens your connection to the kids and families who attend your church regularly.
It’s all about sharing the gospel and allowing the Holy Spirit to do His work. This is why we do VBS. This is what makes the long days and the late nights worthwhile. VBS is worth the time, the effort, and the investment. It’s worth it when relationships are developed, conversations about Jesus are had, seeds are planted, and hearts are transformed for eternity!”

This year’s VBS will be held Monday through Friday, June 3-7 with VBS Commencement on Sunday, June 9, at 10:50 a.m. During this week we will have many opportunities to influence the lives of children and their family members with the love of Christ and the message of salvation. Through our prayers and faithfulness we will see God work in their hearts and lives. We will celebrate with those that are saved and baptized. We will rejoice with those who sense God’s call to ministry and missions.

In an effort to get the word out about the 2019 VBS, “In The Wild” at First Baptist Church, I want to invite you to come and get involved in our VBS BLITZ on Sunday, May 19, 3:00 p.m. From the Fellowship Hall we will be dispatched in teams to hand out free candy and VBS tickets at storefronts and parks throughout Lawton. Your involvement in this all out effort is greatly needed and appreciated. I believe two hours of your time will make an eternal difference in the lives of many. Thank you for being such a blessing.
