Berea Lutheran Church Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota
Over the past few years Berea has experimented with both evening and morning vacation Bible School. Last year many of our parents and children benefited from an evening VBS seminar on “The Christian Family.” This summer, with 42 children enrolled, our daytime VBS focused on the CLC series “A Day In The Courts Of The Lord.” We were blessed with a sizeable and enthusiastic staff. The Lord granted young and old alike a wonderful week of Christian learning and fellowship.

Holy Cross Ev. Lutheran Church Phoenix, Arizona
Even 121 degree temperatures could not wilt the enthusiasm of the students and teachers who participated in this summer’s Vacation Bible School program at Holy Cross in Phoenix. Forty-six children, many of whom were visitors from the neighborhood, played the role of God’s special agents as they searched for clues in Scripture pointing to Jesus as the Savior of the world.
The week concluded with a pizza party at a nearby restaurant, and the following Sunday the children shared with the congregation some of the songs they had learned. As always our VBS was a joyful, busy, faith-building highlight of the summer.
