Title: Mike's Minute

VBS ASAP. Vacation Bible School at Fairfield will be here before you know it! This year’s theme is Heroes of Faith. VBS will be held the last 4 Sunday nights in July. There will be classes, crafts, snacks (including ice cream), water fun, dry fun, inflatables, pizza, and more! What can you do to make VBS A-OK? First and foremost, pray for a safe, successful, and spiritual VBS. Second, round up some young folks and bring them. Third, if you would like to contribute or help in any way, see Jennifer Knight.

Prison Ministry Update. Fairfield’s prison ministry continues to be productive. Tom Gosser reports that there were 3 more baptisms at the local jail this past Saturday. That makes 11 baptisms in the last couple of months! A special thanks to Tom and the others who are planting and watering the seed... and, most of all, to the Lord of the Harvest for giving the increase. Please be praying that these 11 new Christian’s will have healthy, happy and holy lives in service to their Lord.

Busy And Blessed. The last few days I have preached and taught at the Sylvia congregation in Dickson County, taught Vacation Bible School at the Centerville congregation, and led devotionals for 2 groups at Camp Meribah. By the time you read this article (Lord willing) I will have taught in a VBS at the Wolf Creek congregation. I am scheduled to teach VBS at Brushy the next 2 Sunday nights, lead another devotional and teach a daily Bible class for a week at Meribah, and speak in a Wednesday night series at the Fairview congregation. I can tell you that the church is alive and well, awake and active in this area. Let’s all pray that the church can once again “turn the world upside down” in our area and around the world... because, as you well know, upside down from where the world is now would actually be right side up!
