Pastor’s Post:  David Barrett, Jul 24, 2021


This has been a very busy week, but we praise the Lord for all of the kids who came to VBS.  We thank the teachers and those who worked in the kitchen and provided the meals and snacks for all the kids and workers.  I also thank all of those who helped to decorate the rooms, halls, and auditorium.  All of the kids seemed to enjoy their time in VBS.  Many of them were able to memorize the scripture passages they learned each day.  I know they were all blessed by our Lord and Savior.  John and Joy invited all the workers to their home for dinner, fun, and fellowship.  I especially thank Daniel and Brenda for putting all of this together.  Some of the decorations will still be in place this Sunday, so you can get a little taste of VBS, 2021.

I hope you will join with us to pray for these kids and their families.  The gospel was shared every day of VBS.  Pray that these kids and their families will be touched by the Holy Spirit.  We have given them a taste of salvation.  We have sowed the Word of God.  Pray that these seeds will fall on good ground and one day these children and their parents will accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I hope to see you tomorrow in Bible Study and in the Worship hour.  The message will be about God’s grace.  Yes, another sermon on grace.  James 4:6 says, “But He gives more grace.  Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble” (NKJV).

Join with me at 9:45 am (Bible Study) and for Worship at 11:00 am and don’t forget our Quarterly Business Meeting at 12:15 pm.

I leave you a scripture from Psalm 1:1-3.  “Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.  3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither;  And whatever he does shall prosper“ (NKJV).

 Have a blessed day,

David Barrett
