GREETINGS, EVERYONE! We had a great Vacation Bible School this week. Thanks to Dava Hacket and the whole team who taught, helped, led, cooked, sang, operated technology, and any other area of service not covered! Our total child enrollment from age 4 through 6th grade was 33, with just about that many youth and adults served in one capacity or another. Gospel seed was sown this week; prayerfully, we look forward to the harvest of souls!
Here is what's coming up this week and beyond:
THE LORD'S DAY (7/24):
Joe Nogalski with Missouri Baptist Children's Home will be with us for worship. Joe serves as our Children's Home area representative, and it will be our privilege to have him with us that morning. Click on the above link, then scroll down to Joe's bio to find out more about him.
MONDAY -FRIDAY (8/1-5)
Please pray for the 130 plus children who will be in attendance that week, including seven of our own children, two adult staff, and one tenager serving as an ACIT. This camp is for children who have completed grades 4-6. While the deadline for early registration is past, you may still register your child as long as there is room available. (Information, flyers, and registration are online;cost of camp is $155 total, but the church covers more than half so that cost to camper is only $75; also, scholarships are available to cover the total cost upon request).

FIGHTER VERSE: We are not currently reciting the Fighter Verses during the worship service, but I encourage you to do so in your Sunday School class and your Bible study group. Personally commit these verses to your heart, and I believe God will bless you as you do.
We have been learning verses from Psalm 91. This week's verses are Psalm 91:5-6
"You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday."

See you in church!
Grace and peace,
