A few years ago, some members from a Lincoln church decided to host a 5-Day Club in their back-yard, which also happened to be joined with the yard of that same church. For quite some time VBS numbers were few and volunteers were scarce. 5-Day Club just made sense. And boy was it ever! Nearly three times the number of children attended than had ever before enrolled in VBS.
Of those 30 plus children was a young gal who gave her heart to the Lord. Later that fall she and her younger sister, Taylor*, began attending the Good News Club the church then adopted. It was there when her younger sister also made a profession of faith.
A short while ago, the teachers at GNC, had an opportunity to guide two other souls to know Jesus in a personal way, but it would leave the club without supervision. These teachers instantly went from disappointment to excitement when they tasted some sweet fruit they hadn’t expected to taste. Taylor said; “Teachers, I’ll pass out the verse tokens and watch the club while you go and talk and share about Jesus because that is what is most important!”
If you partner with us in finances, prayer, or service, you are a part of hundreds of other stories like this. Clubs this year have all experienced children eager and hungry for God’s Word. It is the Lincoln Chapter’s goal to grow in the number of children reached in 2016. Pray about how God will use you in a greater way for the Kingdom. It is a sweet taste!
