Dr. Wade Lott
Vacation Bible School season is upon us! I hope that your church is planning to conduct VBS this year. Year in and year out, VBS is the most effective evangelistic tool that a church can use to reach children. However, VBS is only evangelistic if you are intentional about making it evangelistic. I urge you to think about and plan for ways that you can share the Gospel in every activity and aspect of your VBS. I also encourage you to share that Gospel every day of your VBS and not just one time. There will be kids that only come one or two days of your event. If you only plan to share the Gospel on one day, there will be some who will not hear. Take advantage of the opportunity that you have to impact a life for eternity and be intentional about sharing the plan of salvation. If you should need any help in planning or preparing for your VBS, please give us a call.
I want to take this opportunity to say “thanks” to all of the churches that are collecting items for the Children’s Homes. Each year we have the opportunity to provide goods to help care for the children that are served by the Georgia Baptist Children’s Homes. We are blessed, in this state, to have a group of people that care for and nurture the children that reside in the Children’s Homes and it is our privilege to get to help support them. You can drop off your supplies at the Association Office on Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. If you need to drop it off at a different time, please call or email to make arrangements.
Finally, I want to invite our Senior Adults to join us for the next Senior Adult Luncheon that will take place on July19 at Grace Baptist Church in Toccoa. Rev. Bill Barker, Georgia Baptist Mission Board Missionary, will be speaking to us about Appalachian Mountain Ministry. This ministry is the one that delivers the Backpacks that we collect in the fall. Bill will be sharing about their work and how we, as Tugalo Baptist Churches can be involved. Call our office to reserve your spot.
Thanks for allowing me the privilege to serve as your Associational Missionary. I pray that you have a wonderful summer as you serve Christ!
