July 15 – July 20 was an exciting time at Hope Valley as we watched children worship, play, laugh, and learn about what it means to be “Rescued by Jesus” at Shipwrecked VBS. One major God Sighting from our week was the success of our VBS Kids’ Mission Project – a little over $1000 was raised to help support children and families in Haiti through Operation Kid-to-Kid – a partnership between Group VBS and World Vision.
As the church grounds return to a more “normal” appearance, we would like to offer a word of thanks to our church family. There are so many ways that Hope Valley Baptist Church invests in and provides support for VBS. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of the many volunteers who served in the weeks leading up to and during the week of VBS as well as for those who consistently pray for Bible School and financially support VBS through faithful giving to the church budget. It is an honor and a privilege to serve alongside you in ministering to children and families in our community and around our world.
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.” (Philippians 1:3-5)
