GAME ON - A Win For The Kingdom

"Dear members and VBS kids at First Baptist,

On behalf of the Oconee Resource Council, thank you for your donations of food for the Summer Food for Kids program. Your amazing response to help families in Oconee County is a tribute to your covenant to aid those families in need.

Thank you again for your generous hearts!


Alice Vernon - Coordinator SFFK"

2 Peter 1:3 says, “His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who has called us by his own glory and goodness.” This was the VBS theme verse for GAME ON this year, and before things even kicked off on the first night, 68 children had it memorized, while 10 others memorized the theme verse and 5 bonus verses. These weren’t the only exciting numbers from last week:

  • 24 – kids that stated they want Jesus be their Savior

  • $1,582.11 – money given to the local Food for Kids program

  • 2 – truck/van loads of food for Food for Kids

  • 573 – children registered

  • 157 – middle schoolers registered

  • 336 – adults and students that served

  • 29 – unchurched families to follow up with

  • 0 – nights of rain

  • ??? – number of prayers lifted up

Many thanks again to the wonderful WFBC church body for using their God-given abilities, talents, time and energy to help make GAME ON a win for the kingdom. From grilling hotdogs, to pushing a stroller, to decorating a classroom, to carrying out trash, to teaching the Bible study lesson, to leading a small group, to passing out cheese balls, to treating a scraped knee, to so many other examples - each of you played a significant role on the team last week.   

We love Jesus and this church, and we know you do, too!!!
