Hey guys! Check out these innovative JOTM decorations from our friend Kathy Kim and her remarkable team! Kathy is VBS leader in Hanmom church, located in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC. All the decorations are made of crumpled, colored paper!! Way to go Kathy—thanks for the inspiration!!
VBS is goin’ BIG in TEXAS! Children’s Minister, Brenda Bourgeois, at Redbud Baptist Church in Lubbock TX has put together an impressive team of people including Pastor Shon Wagner, Youth Minister James Taylor, and Deacon Terry Love. While building sets, James recalls Pastor Wagner with his sleeves rolled up, paint brush in hand—servant leadership for sure! More than 26 Redbud Baptist staff, deacons and church folks from a variety of professional backgrounds (including retired folks!) volunteered their time (about 500 man hours) preparing sets and conference plans for SBTC Training in West Texas. They’ve already completed one training event in Amarillo, March 7, with a second event planned May 9th at Redbud in Lubbuck. Check out some of their work!
...and they’re not done yet! This same Redbud Baptist team will journey off the map into their community, reaching and teaching kids during VBS, June 8-12!
Pastor Wagner, Brenda Bourgeois, James Taylor, and 5 others from Redbud, attended VBS Institute and Preview in Ft Worth. Their passion for kids ministry was (and is) contagious! We agreed that there is no better investment of our time and talent than being part of a team that helps kids and spiritual orphans come to know Jesus Christ!
