Announcements High straight-line winds tore off a sizeable section of the church building roof on Thursday afternoon. Damage was severe enough that we could see daylight in sections. We were immediately notified as Rehoboth Baptist Church that's located next door.
View the video that Wayne Jenkins (Crossed Video Productions) captured moments after the damage occurred.
Because of the damage, we will be meeting at the same times at the old Kirksville Christian High School, 1702 N. Elson. They have a nice facility with a kitchen. This is located close to Lovegreen's Chrysler/Ford Dealership and almost across from Dr. Baily's Office. From Baltimore going south, turn onto Potter (at the light). Elson would be the next street on the left.
The building will need to be thoroughly cleaned once the roof has been fixed. Materials have arrived from Morton, and a work crew is supposed to start work next Monday. We will continue to meet at the old Kirksville Christian High School until the repairs and cleaning are done. VBS is schedules for Monday July 15, through the 17th and starts at 6:30 and we dismiss at 8:00 p.m. This year’s theme is “It’s a Blue Ribbon Life: A Study of the Fruit of the Spirit.”
As Christians, God tells us to be spiritual farmers, and, through His Word, He teaches us which fruits are “blue ribbon” fruits. The prize that awaits us, however, is more than just a ribbon. It is eternal life with God. So if you are ready to begin growing the Christ-like fruit we read about in God’s Word, we invite you to purchase a ticket, step into the fairgrounds, and begin leading your own personal Blue Ribbon Life!
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law." (Galatians 5:22,23)
Students will study the Fruit of the Spirit and look to Jesus as the perfect example of the Spirit-led life. Students will be encouraged to grow this fruit in their own daily lives. Every lesson is solidly built upon God’s Word (NKJV) and is age-appropriate. Teacher-friendly manuals and resources make preparation easy. Peripheral items enhance the VBS experience.
