VBS DIY Prop Ideas

Rejoice in the Church God Has Given You by Thom Rainer for Outreach Magazine
Comparing your church to another church is one of the worst things you can do as a church leader.

To be clear, I am not referring to learning from other churches. We can always learn from our peers and our sister congregations.

But comparison for the sake of comparison is bad. Let me share a few thoughts about this issue to expand upon the concern.

• We should focus on what God is blessing in our churches. 

• Comparisons only make matters worse. 

• Our continuous disposition should be one of joy. 

• Comparisons give us a short-term perspective. 

• We are not showing love for the bride when we compare. 

Learn from other churches. It is always healthy to be in a learning disposition. But don’t compare your church with others in a negative sense. Nothing good can from it.

Rejoice in your present calling. Such an attitude will transform your leadership and, as a consequence, transform the church to which God has called you.

Are We Teaching for Bible Literacy? by Mark Jones (Podcast or video)
It is scary to think we could be looking at the first generation of biblically illiterate kids. Yes, the kids we are teaching right now. I’m not even convinced their parents are biblically literate. These are the future leaders of our churches. Please take a moment and think with me about this. When I was a kid, we were in church two to three times a week. Now, kids are in church two to three times a month.  We were hearing the Bible taught about 150 times a year, but now they hear it about 50 times a year. At the most, they might know some stories, but that can easily be mixed up with other stories or possibly stories not from the Bible. What are we to do?
