Vanceburg's Sunday School Banner

Vanceburg had an AWESOME skit. I'm going to try and tell you about it but it would be better to see it. I wish I had a video for it. They had a girl in chains and the devil and demons were around her. They kept pulling her down and saying stuff to her. Then Jesus came on the stage and all the demons and the devil fell to the floor. Then Jesus released the girl from her chains. That's the skit in a nut shell, I wish I could have done better telling it. It was a very powerful skit.

Because it was so good they received 1st place for it. Also they received 2nd place in growth by percentage. The drawing on the banner was done by my friend who I told that we met up after church one night during camp meeting. He was saved at Vanceburg and it was so wonderful seeing him working for the Lord and also seeing him use the altar during camp meeting.

Well this is the last of the Sunday School Banners. I hope you enjoyed it. Now I'm going to get back to regular blogging. Next week I'm going to probably post about hearing Brother Aaron Iglesias from Honduras preach and after that I'm not really sure what I'll post. I guess it will be a wait and see game.

7th Street's Sunday School Banner

Lord you're holy was the theme that 7th Street did. The drama team called Remnant did sign language to "Lord You're Holy." The group's leader read Psalm 18:1-3...

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. Psalm 18:1

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. Psalm 18:3

Psalm 18:2 is the main verse that was on the banner. They received 3rd place for most in attendance. They also received 3rd place for most youth under 18 in attendance and 2nd place for their skit.

First Columbus' Sunday School Banner

First Columbus CBC had a wonderful skit. They had a lady and their pastor talking about God creating the world. Then they had a song called "God's Painting" and they showed people being saved then going to heaven. At the end they had these signs that they held up, but it didn't make anything. A lot of people felt bad for them because they were holding the signs wrong. But at the end of the song when it talked about the painting being finished they turned the signs and made one huge picture of Jesus' face. It was so awesome.

The pictures of the people are members of their church that has passed away. The picture that the hand is painting around is of a man that attended their church that had recently passed away. This was a great way to honor those people that had went on to be with the Lord.

Russell's Sunday School Banner

Russell's skit was about Paul and Silas. It was a really great skit. Also Nathan the guy who does sign language read almost the whole chapter. Most people I think was surprised because I don't think they knew who could talk. He did a wonderful job. And yet again I can't remember the song they used. This is definitely a sign that I'm getting OLD!

Hayport Road's Sunday School Banner

Hayport Road was another church that I really loved their skit. They had some church members sitting around having a Bible study. And they started to pray and this guy dressed like the devil or a demon (he was in a black robe and had a hood on) was walking around them. He started talking to people one at a time trying to get them to give up or not do things that God called them to do. After this the person would scream really loud, "I'm in the Lord's Army, pass the ammo." The ammo was a Bible. At the end of the skit a woman started to walk away but she ran back to the Bible study group and screamed, "I'm in the Lord's Army, pass the ammo." It was a really great skit.

Also a young man from their church was called to be a missionary. He said he didn't know where God wanted him to go but he would go where God told him. This was exciting news to me though because we have missionaries in other countries but they are people from that country that we support. So for us to have someone called to the mission field is really wonderful, it has been a while since we had someone from the States in our association called.
