2000 VBS at Zion in Atlanta

As preparations are being made by CLC congregations for their 2001 Vacation Bible Schools, a brief report from the first VBS held in Lawrenceville, Georgia (Atlanta area) may be of interest.

With the help of the Traveling Vacation Bible School (TVBS), Zion held its first VBS. The TVBS distributed 6500 fliers in the Lawrenceville area.

Many responses were received. The outreach effort resulted in a VBS in July attended by seventeen children (only three of these were of member families). Zion will again hold a VBS the last week in July, 2001. The members will be doing their own canvassing, and the VBS will be conducted with volunteers from the congregation.

Zion received mission status in February, 2000. The congregation called John H. Johannes as its permanent pastor. Pastor Johannes had been called in May, 1999 on a temporary basis for a year to serve the ten families which form the nucleus of the congregation.

The members of Zion seek the prayers of the members of the CLC as they continue their outreach among the four million-plus people in the Atlanta area.
