What A Blessing in VBS!

By all measurable statistics, we had a fantastic Vacation Bible School this year here at First Baptist Church of Cape Coral, FL!  And what a great spirit among students and staff!  We could not have asked for a better VBS.  We give God the glory and thank Him for our new children’s director, Katrina Wall.  Katrina did a marvelous job.

We clearly presented the Gospel and saw no less than 23 children make a commitment to Christ as Savior.  This figure is the highest we have had here in the years for which I have records.

Our offering was also our highest.  We received a missions offering each day of VBS, with the entire offering committed to the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes.  Our kids brought in a total of $515 this week!

Our attendance was the highest we have seen — with more than 110 people here on Thursday evening alone for the parents’ rally.  Our daytime high was Thursday with 83.  We were very pleased.

An additional highlight of VBS were several new young families who indicated that they wanted to come back to First Baptist and give us a try this weekend or next.  Again, we were very glad to hear that!

Thank you to all who made our 2015 VBS such a great success!
