Sunday was so eventful it was hard to keep up without a program! It was a time to celebrate Independence Day, so we had some good ol' patriotic singing. You just gotta love that Lee Greenwood "God Bless The USA." BBC sings that with such gusto, just like the little all-American farming community that it is!
It was also Vacation Bible School Recognition Day, so we got to enjoy the kids singing and sharing some songs they had learned during the week of VBS. Kids singing is always such a treat! They are so cute!
And it was also Communion Sunday. I like when we take those special moments to really calm ourselves and 'talk' with God a moment, and to be able to reflect on the woulda, shoulda, and coulda things that often occur in our lives. Where would we be without God's Mercy and Grace towards us, His wayward children?
We're so blessed to live in a free land, blessed to see little children who are learning about Jesus, and blessed to have an awesome God who loves us every minute of our lives.
All week, starting Sunday evening, Vacation Bible School has been happening at BBC! What a fun filled time as kids from Age 3 to Grade 5 learn about Jesus. This year's theme was "Surf Shack."
Take a moment to see all the fun in a slideshow of photos.
The children will share some of their songs as well as the pledges to the flags and Bible this Sunday morning during worship.
We've just finished our children's Vacation Bible School week. What a wonderful annual event this is! Our biggest community outreach of the year! We started doing it in the evenings several years ago when it was just way too hot for days. To compensate for not having it during the day there's now an additional Saturday commencement and party. Whole families come out and as they say, "a good time was had by all!"
Sunday morning found the kids opening up the service with songs they had learned during VBS. It's always a treat to see the little ones perform!
You can see some photos from the exciting week at http://www.blackwaterbaptist.org/vbs.html and there are even more on our Facebook page!
