2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” These are Paul’s words to his protégé Timothy. Paul wants Timothy to be prepared and able to share and defend what he believes about Jesus Christ. This is not just a call to preachers, teachers, or leaders, this is a call to all God’s people to study His word so that we may be able to discern between what is false about God and what is true about God. We are all workers in God’s vineyard. Let’s study the word of God.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
VBS date back to the late 1800s when a school teacher in Illinois wanted to teach her students about the Bible during the summer. That wonderful tradition is embodied in what we’re doing this week. It has been amazing to see those of you who have attended in-person and those who are attending virtually come together to study the Word of God together. I thank God for all He has done to make VBS possible. And it’s not over. Join us tonight and tomorrow as we conclude this wonderful week in God’s word. The dinner hour will begin nightly at 5pm with VBS devotion at 6:15pm and classes starting at 7pm.
