Take your kids or grandchildren on an adventure like no other, deep within the mysterious sea. As kids submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus didn’t just see what’s on the outside of people. He looked deep down on the inside. So grab your goggles, step into your flippers, and dive in to find truth below the surface!
Next Monday, June 20, 9 a.m., Vacation Bible School begins at Balboa Baptist Church! Our theme is “Submerged.” Please pre-register at BalboaBaptist.Church, just click “Event Sign Up.”
Our “Submerged” theme is based on a verse in Psalms:
“Search me, God, and know my heart, test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.”
Psalm 139:23-24 HCSB
We still pledge allegiance to the flag of the United State of America and we don’t leave out “under God.” We pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag representing our Savior Jesus and His kingdom.
We still have fun and games, snacks, make things, and of course, tell the great and true stories of the Bible, not the make-believe Disney fairy tales.
We share the plan of salvation on a child’s level. We don’t artificially pressure kids to accept Christ, but pray that they will commit their lives to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord. We depend on the Spirit of God to be the One who convicts a child of their sin and need for Jesus as Savior.
The gospel is the good news about Christ. The bad news is we have all sinned and fall short of ever getting to God on our own. The good news is God provided His perfect Son as a sacrifice paying for all our sin. If someone will confess their faith in Jesus Christ and accept God’s gift of eternal life, then that person will be saved.
And we still pledge allegiance to the Bible, believing it is God’s holy Word because:
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God use it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT
Please bring your kids to Vacation Bible School and let them be “Submerged” in fun and the eternal things of God!
Our Father, please bless this week of bringing little children to the loving arms of Jesus!
