The Bible has a lot to say about children. Psalm 127:3 says, “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” Proverbs 17:6 says, “Grandchildren are the crown of old men, and the glory of sons is their fathers.” In Matthew 19:14, Jesus also said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
As a result, the Bible has a lot to say about teaching them. It tells us in numerous places that it is our duty as adults to instruct them and show them the truths of our faith. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Deuteronomy 11:18 also says, “You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.”
With that in mind, we have a wonderful opportunity to teach our children this summer through our first ever Vacation Bible School. From August 12-15, a team from Grace Community Church will be coming from Los Angeles to help us put on our first Adventure themed VBS called “Adventure of a Lifetime.” It will have Bible lessons, games, music, crafts and snacks for the kids all centered around John 8:12: “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world.” VBS is a great opportunity for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our families and community – what a privilege!
