Subsequent week’s theme at St. Paul’s Lutheran Bible Vacation College, 400 S. 13th St., is victory.
“We are going to discuss how God is the nice victory and we wish to be in his group and we will win after we are in his group.” mentioned Lynn Meyer, VBS program coordinator. “So the youngsters will examine a variety of Bible tales about individuals who had been younger and younger and weak and unpopular, and the way God took them and used them and created a victory with them.”
The vacation Bible faculty is open to youngsters from the age of 4 to the fifth grade. It takes place from 9:00 to midday on June 20-24 and there’s no value for participation.
After a lot success final yr, St. Paul additionally returns to his afternoon camp for the week.
Afternoon camps are open to youngsters in grades I by 5 and run from midday to three p.m. The fee for the afternoon camps is $ 10 per youngster for the entire week.
“We actually needed to offer our group with a service that’s enjoyable for youths and low-cost, one thing that everybody can take part in and get out of the warmth.” mentioned Meyer.
The youngsters can have completely different choices throughout the camp.
St. Paul works with a number of group organizations to host youngsters’s camp actions.
Adventures in Social Drumming will educate youngsters about drums and rhythm, and the Blanden Memorial Artwork Museum will do artwork tasks with campers. A grasp gardener at Becker Florist will educate youngsters about vegetation and bugs, and Britta McCollum from eighth Avenue Honey will discuss beekeeping.
For the second yr in a row, Iowa State College Extension and Outreach and Webster County Four-H will likely be coming to show cooking to caravans.
Final yr, St. Paul VBS and the afternoon camp had about 104 youngsters, Meyer mentioned. As much as 150 are anticipated this yr.
“We now have a variety of excited volunteers who will likely be available that week, from our church and our group.” mentioned Meyer.
Contributors don’t have to be members of the St. Paul Congregation.
“Everyone seems to be welcome” mentioned Meyer.
Campers staying within the afternoon camp are requested to convey a packed lunch every day – a morning snack and a day snack will likely be supplied.
“We wish to ensure that youngsters get what they’re used to consuming.” mentioned Meyer.
