Summer vacation used to be a well-defined period of time. Depending on where you live in the country, school would get out at the end of May or beginning of June and start back in late August or early September. Now with balanced school calendars and year-round education “summer vacation” isn’t quite so clear. What is clear is that summer is not a time to step away from God or ministry.
Summer is a great time to make some ministry hay. While it is good to rest and take a vacation (even God took a day off when creating the universe) the entire summer is not one big vacation from church and ministry. Many times the summer season affords us new ministry opportunities for which we have to not be on vacation to take advantage. Ministries like Bible clubs, Vacation Bible School, summer childcare, camps, family activities, missions trips, and more are all available because of the change in schedule (and weather) during June, July, and August.
Church - Attendance - Summer - Months - Folks
Church attendance typically dips during the summer months and unfortunately many folks take the summer off from God and church completely. Staffing core church operations, like Sunday morning, becomes a challenge as volunteers disappear for weeks at a time. Again, rest is good, but not rest to the exclusion of loving Him who died for you.
