In June, Immanuel's daughter congegations will again assist her in an outreach Vacation Bible School (VBS). The Directors of Christian Education (DCEs) of various area congregations have again volunteered themselves and their youth groups to teach and lead the children of Immanuel's neighborhood. there will be Bible stories, Jesus songs, crafts and recreation for the kids and a Bible study for their parents.
The VBS will be held each Wednesday evening in June from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Each evening will begin with a light supper at 5:00 in Immanuel's fellowship hall.
The ladies of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church will again take the lead in preparing the dinners. The DCE and pastors of Peace Lutheran Church will be bringing their resources, and connections too!
A number of children who attended last year currently worship with their parents at Peace, but they live near Immanuel. Thei families were members of Good Shepherd, an LCMS congregation that disbanded years ago. These former Good Shepherd members are spiritually strong and are good witnesses to their neighbors. My hope is that they can bring their neighbors to hear the Gospel at Immanuel's VBS.
