Heroes are easy to love. They fight evil and win, people like them, they usually have a supernatural power that makes them special and sometimes heroes are the people you’d least expect. At least the heroes we watch in movies and read about in comic books- like Spiderman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman. But what about real life heroes? The music for this year’s VBS goes through all the steps we need to do to be Heroes of God. Like pledging to help those in need, having the courage to trust in God, finding strength in God’s love for us, meeting every test that comes our way with God’s grace, praying and recognizing God’s grace within ourselves. It is wonderful how music can empower our children and us in all that we do. I encourage you to consider continuing this journey of courage and exploration into expressing our love for God with us throughout the school year. Children’s and Youth Choirs will rehearse on Wednesday nights from 6-7 p.m. (dinner included) in Langley Hall starting September 13. For more information, please contact me anytime.
