We have made it through July and on into August.July was an absolutely crazy, but amazing month in the life of our church.We started off the month with an absolutely amazing week of Vacation Bible School!We had two salvations during VBS and many seeds planted; some blossomed later during Children’s Camp.On the Saturday following VBS we took many of our youth group to Frontier City.Twenty-three made up our group and we had a wonderful time together.Many of these youth had volunteered their time and energy helping out in various ways during VBS.God worked in amazing ways at Children’s Camp this year.We had thirty-seven salvations for the entire camp with three recommitments to Christ.We saw twelve of those salvations in our own cabin!
As a church family it is our responsibility to disciple each of these young people.As they grow in their relationship with Christ we must teach them what it means to be a faithful follower of Christ.We must also teach them to become a faithful church member.We must model these things to our younger generations.We must actively be involved in the lives of these young people as well.This is not just the responsibility of just a few teachers, but the entire church family.Through intentional cross-generational discipleship we as a church family will grow closer in fellowship and unity.
God is at work in Pawhuska!He is working in the lives of our children and youth.As Henry Blackaby says, “We must see where God is working and join Him there.”We all must be involved in the lives of our young people.
I am excited about what God has in store for us together here at Pawhuska 1st Baptist in the year 2016 and beyond!God has brought us all here together at this time for a mighty work.Be in constant prayer for discernment for understanding of what this work is.“Greater things are yet to be done in this city…”Be constant in prayer.Be actively seeking the welfare of Pawhuska (Jeremiah 29:4-9).Together we must, “Touch the World…Impact Eternity.”In our mission and ministry at Pawhuska FBC, we must truly put Pawhuska First! It is in our name.It isour mission.
