VBS 2013

June 24-June 28, 2013

What is VBS?  VBS stands for Vacation Bible School!  Where children from 4 years old through 6th grade learn all about Jesus, our Savior.   Older students graduating from 7th grade -- Highschool are welcome to volunteer as Youth Helpers.  Follow the  registration links for more information. for both Youth and Adult volunteers.

VBS is at Trinity Lutheran Church is FREE! (We do collect donations of clothing and money for a mission project every year) Be prepared for a lot of fun and excitement! 

Children join groups based on the grade they have just completed.  Each group has an adult guide plus several helpers to take the children through a series of rotations.  Every day, the children see & hear the Bible story of the day, learn a theme verse, do a craft, sing great songs, see themed skits, visit a discovery center, and have time for snack/recreation.Kids

Four year olds, and 5’s who haven’t been through a school environment will have a separate preschool space where modified activities are done. Fifth and 6th graders have their own, cool separate hang-out space in Trinity’s Youth Room.

During Tell It on the Mountain VBS, your children will learn about our one true God through five mountaintop Bible accounts where God meets His people with clear messages of His might and grace.  God's message of salvation through Jesus, our Savior and Lord, now and forever, is one to shout out and share from the mountaintops to the four corners of our world.  As the children hear the Bible stories of our mighty God, they will grow in faith in our one true God and Jesus, our Savior and Lord.
