Oakwood Invites Families To Wilderness Escape VBS

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Oakwood Baptist Church, 115 Oakwood Street in Chickamauga, presents a summer family event called “Wilderness Escape: Where God Guides and Provides”, June 8-12 from 6:15 - 8:30 p.m. nightly.

Families step back in time at Wilderness Escape, exploring some of the adventures faced by Moses and the Israelites. Kids and adults participate at the Israelite Camp, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Moses, and collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s Word.

Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration—a time of worship that gets everyone involved.

Also, kids and adults at Wilderness Escape VBS will join nearly a million participants reaching out to needy kids through a hands-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which families will send photos and personalized Bible coloring books to children in India.

Bob Tamasy: It’s All In The Name – Or Is It?

Have you noticed the recent surge in the use of hyper-aggressive, vicious-sounding names? (I’m not referring to the Presidential race, by the way.) We hear them on TV, the radio, newspapers, the Internet, in conversations in the break room at work. Because we’re immersed in another football season, when Giants and Titans roam the land, Bears and Bengals snarl at foes, Cowboys ride ... (click for more)

What's next? Southern Baptists getting old city parking scooters to patrol church parking lots ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: A Pitch Called ‘The Defector’

When Jose Fernandez was killed early Sunday morning in a boating accident, he was 24 years old yet had already lived a life much larger than almost all old men. He had spent part of a year in an unimaginably cruel Cuban prison, this when he only 14 years old and sandwiched in an inhumane cell among grown criminals. There were murders daily – in his very cell -- and nobody cared. ... (click for more)
