Coats Baptist Church will kick off VBS 2022 – Sparks Studios next week on Monday, July 25th at 6:30PM! I want to take a moment and talk to you about ways you can be involved, register, and pray for VBS throughout this week! Most volunteer spots are filled BUT it’s important for us to have prayer warriors going on behalf of not only me (Haley King) as the VBS Director, but everyone involved in making this week happen. Please pray for the children, parents, and volunteers participating in VBS this week. Use these suggestions to guide you.
PRESCHOOL LEADERS (Babies–Kindergarten)
- Pray for leaders to have the stamina, wisdom, and patience they need to care for these young children.
- Ask God to grant wisdom to each leader to share Bible truths in age- appropriate ways.
- Pray that all preschool leaders will reflect the love of Jesus.
CHILDREN’S LEADERS (First–Sixth Grades)
- Pray that leaders will be spiritually, mentally, and physically prepared to lead children to Christ as they are directed by the Holy Spirit.
- Ask God to prepare the hearts of the children to fully understand the concepts of sin and the gospel so that they might apply these concepts to their daily lives.
- Pray that the leaders in these classes will be sensitive to the unique learning characteristics of the age groups they are leading.
WORSHIP RALLY LEADERS
- Ask God to give the Worship Rally leaders the stamina needed to conduct a high-energy program.
- Pray that the kids will have a meaningful worship experience free of distractions or interruptions.
- Pray that the leaders will demonstrate a passion for missions.
- Ask God to help the kids develop a passion for being missionaries wherever they go.
- Ask God to give leaders the words and direction needed to reinforce each Bible story as the children work.
- Pray for the leaders to be sensitive to each child and his skill level.
- Pray for the safety of all leaders and children as they participate in recreation.
- Ask God to use this time to build relationships and good sportsmanship.
- Pray for those who are coordinating, preparing, and serving snacks to do so with a cheerful heart.
- Ask God to provide opportunities for leaders to reinforce each day’s Bible story.
Also, pray that each daily Bible story and scripture taught will be fruitful!

Lastly, pray for the VBS Sunday Celebration! We will have one joint service July 31st at 10:30AM that you are all invited to be a part of! This is a perfect opportunity for you to see how your prayers have been answered as we will watch the kids worship and catch up on everything that went on at Sparks Studios! Thank you Coats Baptist for all your support! I hope you will pray alongside me and the pastoral staff that VBS will be spiritually beneficial and that Christ will be magnified above all else!
