Need your help … and T-Shirts!

It’s time to add the next 5 words of our verse:


He is the image of the invisible God,

the firstborn over all creation.

For everything was created by Him, …

where?  …  in heaven and on earth


Lately, I’m finding that this verse is what runs through my mind when I’m trying to fall asleep.  Pretty neat …

Next week, I’ll start sending you devotions covering each day of VBS.


Chris Rethemeyer and I have been brainstorming our Science Observatory.  I’m SO excited about this station!

We could really use your help with something though … what attributes of God do you discover when you think about the huge expanse of space?

Please comment to help us!  Complete this statement with as many things as you can think of:

God is ___________ because He __________________________________.

For example, “God is loving because He put the earth in the perfect place for us to live.”

“God is big because He made the whole universe.”

This is a statement we’re going to challenge the kids with every time they visit the science station.   They’ll discover the attributes of God by looking at what God has done (searching the visible, discovering the invisible).


VBS t-shirts will be on sale for 11 days only starting this Sunday!

  • God is mysterious because he is the beginning and the end.
    God is good because he can’t not be.
    God is more good than we can think of because he is just that awesome.
    God is going to win every time because he created time.
    God is pure because he isn’t like humankind.
    God is always the same because he IS. The I AM.

  • God is present because he love us.
    God is Life because he flows through us.
    God is good because he is my savior.
    God is peaceful because he is the Prince of Peace.

  • This scripture keeps coming to mind:
    Psalm 8:4-6
    4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
    5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
    6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,

    God is gracious and loving because He created all the heavens and then places us (man) in dominion over them.

  • God is big because he has the whole world in his hands (yes, cheesy I know)
    God is powerful because he spoke the universe into existence
    God is loving because he sent his son to take our punishment
    God is gracious because he doesn’t give us what we deserve
    God is amazing because he made everything
