Sunday was a very special Sunday at Winterville FBC. We kicked off VBS in grand fashion by starting our service with some of the music from Colossal Coaster World, this year’s VBS, and I preached the theme verse, 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” All our VBS leaders came in their bright yellow shirts and we had a time of prayer to commission their service this week. If you follow our church on Facebook you can click here to view some of the pictures. I’ll also post a less extensive gallery here on my blog.
In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul encouraged Timothy to trust God in the midst of his fear. So whenever we’re afraid we should trust God as well.
1. Forsake your fear!
2. Focus on God’s gifts!
A. God’s power
B. God’s love
C. God’s discipline
Our first night of VBS 2013 had over 100 children in attendance! The folks here at Winterville FBC have really provided excellent leadership for VBS and I am extremely proud of them. I’m looking forward to what the rest of the week holds.
