Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School!  July 29th - August 2nd, 9:00 am - noon.  We're excited about plans for our VBS this summer!  We'll be using the new curriculum from ELCA World Hunger, "Who Is My Neighbor", based on the parable of the Good Samaritan.  Each day children ages four year through sixth grade will participate in engaging activities that reinforce the them of what it means to be a true neighbor in relationship with the people God places in our midst.  There will be meaningful Bible lessons, energetic outdoor games, rousing singing, fun crafts and tasty, nutritious snacks.  In addition the youth will learn about the work of ELCA World Hunger throughout the world and they will lead our congregation in bringing in "Noisy Change" donations.  


We'll be needing lots of help!  Please see if there's some way you can share your gifts (even if you can't commit to the whole week) and contact the office or Lynn Danner.

  • Help with registration the first day or two

  • Prepare and serve snacks

  • Assist activity leaders

  • Help decorate/set up on Sunday afternoon July 28th

  • Bring children/grandchildren and spread the word in your neighborhood

  • Pray for God's blessing on our VBS ministry
