Created in God’s Image: The Sanctity of Life, Marriage, Children, and Family is the theme of this summer’s Vacation Bible School and Family Suppers to be held the week of August 12 through the 16, culminating in a community forum on Friday night, August 16, after the Fish Fry. Topics will include the Biblical view of marriage and family, the importance of protecting human life from conception to old age, caring for children, the elderly, and the infirm, and the attacks of contemporary culture on traditional marriage and the sanctity of life.
During the morning, children will be grounded in the truths of God’s Word concerning the value of God’s gifts of human life, marriage and family. They will also sing, play games, and engage in special crafts that support the lessons. Over the supper hours, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., adults and families will gather for supper studies and activities that will enrich and equip them to live as Christians in a culture that is increasingly hostile to their faith and values. This week of study, food, fun activities, and worship will not only defend the Biblical teaching on marriage and family, it will also hold up the wonderful and precious gifts that God gives us to offer to the world, gifts that are redeemed and sanctified by Christ’s redeeming work upon the cross. Children, families, and adults who would like to participate should register in the church office. Call (262) 246-3200 or return the registration form available on the church website, peacesussex.org. Volunteers for VBS teachers, craft and recreation leaders, and snacks can sign up through the church office. VBS Registration 2013
