VBS Note: From Sherry Brewer
Hello fellow aviators (pastors, VBS leaders, teachers)
               Its that time of year to make the decision... will we do a VBS this year?
               In times past, and again last year, associational churches linked up and shared the roles, responsibilities and opportunities Vacation Bible School provided. Sharing, staff, props, materials and building space joining another church body endeavoring to share Christ with the children in our churches, families, extended families and neighborhoods. But what will you do in 2012?
               LifeWay VBS Sampler packs are already available online. Several of our churches already have theirs in and it looks like a wonderful time lies ahead of us.
               The closest VBS clinic for your VBS leaders (director, music, crafts, missions, rec and teachers) will be in Roseburg this year on May the 19th. There are also opportunities at other times to head up for training in either Salem or Vancouver.
               If you've never been maybe you should consider going with your leadership teams, catching a glimpse of what all is included, getting fresh eyes and fresh ideas, learning the songs firsthand with other live adults trying to 'bust a move'. smile  In the next couple of months invitations and flyers should be arriving in The Witness (NWBC online paper) and at our association and at our churches. 
               Now is the time to begin praying about what the summer of 2012 holds for you.
