Dan River's Mainstream

Vacation Bible School 2018 Game On!
VBS 2018 is June 11-15!
Gear Up for Life's Big Game
LifeWay's 2018 VBS invites you to grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune up your instruments.  As you fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drum line, players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given you His ultimate playbook.  He wants you to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another.  Get in the spirit today with Game On VBS.
Theme Verse
His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3
Gear up! Get Ready! Game on!
Game time Monday-Friday is 9:00 AM-12:00 PM.  The Adult class will be led by Daniel Barker.  Adult classes will begin at 10:00 each morning.
Commencement is Friday night at 7:00 PM.  There will be Ice Cream Sundaes and other desserts provided.

As your children are learning about the Game of Life this week, they will also be learning about how we can show others that we love them, as Jesus does, through giving. 
As a group, we will be collecting school supplies all week.  Supplies needed for the Dan River Baptist Association School Supply Ministry are: 24 packs of crayons, notebook paper, 2-pocket folders, glue sticks, index cards, children’s scissors, and 3-ring binders. 
Likewise, each day during the Worship Rally, an offering will be taken.  This offering will be going to sponsor children for school in Nicaragua. We will be supporting the Save Them One by One Nicaraguan ministry, created by Jennifer Chappell, in this effort.  Children must have uniforms in order to attend school there, and most families cannot afford the expense.  For only $25, students are supplied with uniforms and school supplies.  They also learn of Christ’s love for them.
At commencement Friday night, a special offering will be taken for the Baptist General Association of Virginia’s More Than Nets Ministry.  To date 82,000 nets have been distributed to 345 villages in Ghana leading to a 43% decline in malaria cases.  Over 200,000 lives have been saved by $10 nets!  The $10 donation provides a chemically treated net, education, transportation, and support for church planting.
Thank you for your support of these mission opportunities.  We are always blessed when we give!

Assistant Pastor
At the special business meeting last Sunday, Rev. Dustin Francis was appointed as an “On Call Assistant Pastor” with a vote of 93-yes and 10-no.

Adult Bible Study
Adults are studying “Pray Like This (Living the Lord’s Prayer)” Wednesdays at 7:00 PM.  This study shows believers that following Jesus' Model Prayer will lead them to fall more in love with God and grow in their desire to engage in conversation with Him.  In this study you'll see the significance of starting your prayers by acknowledging God as Father.  You'll learn what it means for His name to be recognized as holy.  You'll discover what you're asking God to do when you pray for His kingdom to come and His will to be done.  You'll see what Jesus meant when He told us to ask God for daily bread.  You'll understand the importance of asking for forgiveness in your prayers.  The study ends by emphasizing the need to ask God to deliver us from the evil one.
This week is Vacation Bible School.  There will be no Bible study Wednesday night, June 13.
We hope you will join us next Wednesday, June 20, as the study continues.
