I hope you are having a great start to your summer and have heard about Shandon's great start to summer with VBS! We had 1,384 kids enrolled, 155 kids who made a first-time decision to follow Christ, and 69 kids who made a decision to move to their next step in their faith walk and be baptized! I am so grateful for the amazing Kids team, tech team, Worship Arts, and facilities team that made VBS happen, and a very special THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who gave up their time to create a fun and safe environment for kids to come and learn about Jesus.
But, we’re not finished yet! I want to encourage you to keep the momentum going and remember to be missional every day! So many of you invited and brought first-time guests to VBS and we are hearing great stories about those kids coming to Christ. Let’s keep living “sent” lives. One simple way to do that is to pick up the new invite cards that have the new service times printed on the backs and use them to invite people to church. Make sure to pick a few up each week and wherever you go, be intentional about who you can invite to church to hear the good news of Jesus Christ!
In addition to inviting, we are also going this summer! We are sending out almost 300 church members on 13 mission trips from May to August. Let’s lift these teams in prayer!
I am so thankful for what is happening at Shandon and can’t wait to see how God continues to move in Columbia and beyond!
For His Glory,
