23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Our church family starts its yearly Vacation Bible School tonight. This is a four night event that brings about eating, learning God’s word and crafts.
We love this time of year as we get to see many familiar faces, those we rarely see, and some new faces as well.
I (Dana) and my Aunt Tenito (pronounced Ta-ni-ta) is in charge of feeding the multitude. Tangi will be teaching the 5 and 6-year-old class and Laura will be capturing all the action via still photos and videos.
This year we will be learning about Proverbs 31 – The Virtuous Women. Our writers chose Women in the Bible that exhibited different traits described in Proverbs 31.
Monday night we learn about Hannah, an example of a Faithful Woman.
Tuesday night we learn about Abigail, a woman of beauty and wisdom. And Deborah, whom was both a prophetess and a judge.
Wednesday night we learn of Compassion from three women, Lydia, Ruth and the Shunammite Woman.
Thursday night we learn about Esther, an orphan girl who became queen. She was also a woman of Courage and clear judgement.
Friday night we learn about Purity and how Mary, the Mother of Jesus exhibited this trait.
We hope to bring you all the action, plus a little learnens’ about God’s wonderful word, cooking and craft making!
Hopefully, you will find something along the way that will help you in your life and possibly with your VBS.
Let’s get started!
