Dr Mark A Boyd WOW What a difference one month can make Things have changed considerably in our American landscape but what has not changed is the constant faithfulness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ I am confident that all of you have made personal sacrifices and have stepped out of your comfort zones in helping others around you I want to say thank you for your faithfulness in your service to others in the name of Christ The way we are meeting for corporate worship has changed temporarily but rest assured we will all be back together again soon and what a day of rejoicing that will be I am praying for that first day as each of our churches gather together under one roof that REVIVAL will break out in SE Oklahoma I hope that you are journaling each day during this COVID 19 crisis so that you can look back years from now and see how God s hand was at work in your life and in the lives of others I would like to encourage you to begin preparations for when you have your GRAND RE OPENING of your church facility Let it be a time of celebration and a sober reminder of how fortunate we are to have these beautiful buildings to gather in Like so many of you I have been to other parts of this world and I have seen desperate conditions But in the midst of those dire situations there was a joy and peace that goes beyond human understanding and could only be explained by the presence of God May we all evaluate what is truly important and make the commitment that we will never again take for granted these moments of life our family and friends and most of all our eternal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior NEWS FROM THE CHURCHES Our churches have been doing a wonderful job of adjusting their daily operations to accommodate this national health crisis Continue to remember our churches across America and around the world in prayer as we embrace change in the months ahead https www FriscoBaptist com covid 19 KBA SUBJECT COVID 19 and our summer

continuing to unfold each and every day you may be wondering what s going to happen to VBS this summer Well don t worry VBS is still on In fact we at LifeWay VBS are planning on VBS happening this summer in a big way We know there s a lot of uncertainty about how and when but we are committed to serving churches in their mission of making disciples So no matter when or how you do VBS this year we ll be there to help and support you At this point in time it s too early to make a definitive decision to cancel anything scheduled for this summer Things are rapidly changing every day and none of us knows exactly what the situation will be weeks from now So right now we need to be prepared for VBS to happen as planned You may want to have a back up date reserved on the calendar just in case but press onward trusting that VBS will go on as scheduled LifeWay Kids and LifeWay VBS exist to serve you We are monitoring the current situation closely and will be ready to help churches share the gospel of Jesus this summer no matter what happens with COVID 19 We ve had many conversations over the last few weeks with church leaders from across the country and have heard that most churches are still planning on VBS happening this summer Some may push their dates a little later depending on developments but many also believe this summer s VBS has the potential to be their biggest VBS in years In fact many are planning for record breaking attendance knowing that parents will be ready for their kids to get out of the house and kids will be hungry for getting back together with their friends and doing something fun Who would ve ever thought we d be where we sit today God did He knew exactly what we d be going through in 2020 COVID 19 didn t catch Him off guard The message of this year s VBS was divinely appointed for these uncertain times He is our Rock and our solid foundation A foundation built to last A foundation that will not crumble no matter what life throws at it The closures of schools events and even churches cannot thwart His plans and they do not change our mission Satan would love nothing more than to thwart the largest evangelistic tool of our churches but that won t happen on our watch I m looking forward to hearing the incredible stories that will come out of this VBS because I know God is going to use the hardships we re experiencing now to draw people closer to Him and to prepare their hearts to receive Him YOUR FRIENDS FROM LIFEWAY VBS RESOURCES APRIL 2020 ALL ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN EITHER POSTPONED OR CANCELLED FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL MAY
