2009 Graduates

Every year, we are so blessed to have such wonderful seniors who are a part of the Lebanon Road family. Over the next few weeks, we will be taking a little time to recognize our seniors in their achievements and their outstanding charac- ter.

Rachel Pugh will be graduating from David Lipscomb Campus School as The Graduate of Distinction with the Algebra II Award, the Geometry Award, the Scien- tific Investigation Award, and Cum Laude in Latin. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta and a member of the Service club. Rachel received an academic scholarship to David Lipscomb

University and will be majoring in Nursing.

Along with Rachel’s many aca- demic achievements, she has also excelled in High School Softball. She has been All District in 10 th , 11 th , and 12 th grade. Rachel was a major contributor to her team winning District Champions in both 11 th and 12 th grade. Even in Softball, her school- ing has been recognized by achieving All Academic Team in 11 th and 12 th grade.

Leslie Frizzell is also gradu- ating from David Lipscomb Campus School and will con- tinue her education at Freed Hardeman Uni- versity in the fall, ma- joring in education.

Leslie excelled in several areas. She was in the National Honor Society, Spanish Club, Standing Room Only—Drama Club, Art Club and Service Club.

Leslie has spent her summers as a lifeguard at the Wave pool and is now working at the Dinner Bell.

Rachel and Leslie have been strong participants in our youth group activities and great spiri- tual leaders to their peers. They always contribute in class with well-thought questions and responses. I am very proud of their accomplish- ments! I look forward to seeing what they will do for God’s Kingdom in the future!

VBS: Just One Month Away!

Our annual Vacation Bible School will be finishing one month from today (June 17)! We will begin on Sunday night, June 14, and we will be studying the life of Christ from a slightly different angle.

Our theme is “AD 33 Tours: Walking Where Jesus Walked,” and our focus is on the culture be- hind Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Please take note that we are changing the time of our VBS this year. Each night (including Sunday and Wednesday) we will be starting at 6:30. For those with small children, this will be a great help. We know some work until 6 or later, but we are simply

trying out this time for one year to see if it helps our families.

There are so many areas where help is needed, but we are “on track” for a great VBS! Our young people need to be invit- ing friends and neighbors, but they shouldn’t be the only ones in- viting others. We all can encourage someone to at- tend.

We are going to have four or five ladies in charge of snacks for each night, instead of having the same ladies over every night. They de- serve to hear our speak- ers, too! If you can “coordinate” a night (Wednesday is already spoken for), please let

me know. We will also have more information about refreshments avail- able in the coming weeks.

Above all, be praying for our VBS. Our teachers are hard at work, and they will make this a special week. Our adult speakers are preparing tremendous lessons. We have four speakers coming who truly love God’s Word and are excited about coming to Lebanon Road to encourage and teach us. Pray for each of these as the time draws near.

Finally, make sure your calendar has “VBS” writ- ten across June 14-17. Your prayers and pres- ence will help make “AD 33 Tours” a wonderful week!

Prayer is composed of four elements: supplica- tion, intercession, thanksgiving, and praise. Supplication is an earnest entreaty. “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and sup- plication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:18). Intercession is an appeal in behalf of others. “Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me” (Romans 15:30). “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you” (2 Thessalonians 3:1). Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude for favors received. “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20). “Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:17-


Praise is the sincere outpouring of adoration. Jesus, in the model prayer, said, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hal- lowed by thy name” (Matthew 6:9).
