On Monday, June 3rd, through Friday, June 7th,
the church of Christ in Cleveland will humbly present their 2013 Vacation Bible School, for ALL Cleveland youth,
ages 2 through 6th grade, from 9:00 – 11:30 A.M.
This year’s V.B.S. is entitled:
“It’s A Blue Ribbon Life; A Study Of The Fruit Of The Spirit.”
“Set within the fun and excitement of a typical old-fashioned county fair, ‘It’s a Blue Ribbon Life’ offers an in-depth study of each of the nine fruit of the spirit listed in Galatians 5. Looking to Jesus as the personification of each of these fruit, the VBS teaches us practical ways to display these blue ribbon fruit in our lives.”

Monday; Lesson 1:
Longsuffering and Faithfulness
The Temptation of Jesus (Matthew 4:1-11)

And then, there is also the wonderful wrap-up and award ceremony to follow on Friday evening, June 7th, for the entire family of all student attendees, beginning at 7:00! At that time, all family members are heartily encouraged to please come and enjoy a free “pizza and pop” supper; to view the rooms and see what their children have accomplished and completed during their week of work and study; and to witness the award presentations ceremony for all of the students from the week who have excelled in one area or another such as perfect attendance, Bible class participation, Bible verse memorization, and/or etc.
Some may ask, “Just how important is this anyway?” Well, we read in the sacred text how from several thousand years ago, God instructed parents and grandparents to faithfully pass along His glorious message to the next generation. See: Deuteronomy 4:9, 6:5-7; Proverbs 22:6; and especially Ephesians 6:1-4:
‘Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.’
We here who comprise the Cleveland church of Christ realize just how difficult it can be today to do exactly that. We understand that in a world of single parents, two-income house-holds, and the incredibly busy schedules that so many of us are so often forced to keep, that everyone needs a little help now and then to carry out the Lord’s commandments as stated above. And so, we stand ready to help you by providing outstanding educational events like this.
Whether your children attend a local denomination or have never been in a church building before, they are warmly invited and wonderfully welcome at the Cleveland church of Christ’s colossal 2013 Vacation Bible School event!!!
We are respectfully requesting that all parents interested in registering their children ahead of time for this huge, fun-filled, and Biblically-educational event, might do so by contacting Doug Dingley at (918) 358-3952; or via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you for some reason cannot register your child in advance, then please plan to have them here at the church building between 8:30 & 9:00 Monday, June 3rd, to register.
We thank you for your interest and look forward to your child’s attendance to come, learn, and explore some of these vital and life-giving truths from God’s holy word during our big V.B.S. summer event. For further information or answers to any of your questions, please contact our minister and evangelist, Douglas Dingley, at: (918) 358-3952; or email@example.com.
We look forward to serving the Lord Jesus Christ, by serving those of you who allow us the precious privilege to do so, both this week and always. To God be the glory! As His ‘word perfect,’ perfect word says:
“…the churches of Christ greet you.” (Romans 16:16)
