TRINITY VBS: AMAZING WEEK
OF OUTREACH
Trinity Lutheran ChurchSchool infected close to 300 students this past month.

The virus?

Being on fire for God and having a contagious faith.

In all, 294 students registered for Trinity’s Vacation Bible School, which was held on June
17-21. Of those registered, 43 percent have not been baptized and 18 percent have no church home.

What an amazing and glorious opportunity to reach those who maybe starving to learn more about God.

“It was an amazing week,” said Kari Smith, who joined with 46 other volunteers to lead this year’s VBS. “Children became contagious and walked out the doors with smiles on their faces.”

During the week, students learned – through song, crafts, games and God’s Word - that God is with us when we are sad, scared, when life is unfair, when life changes, and when life is good.

The children also learned that God is good and they are loved by Him all the time.

The learning and knowledge gained went home with the students as well as close to 50 families purchased CDs, which included all the VBS songs learned during the week.

Martin Luther writes of our children: We must certainly spare no diligence, effort, or cost in teaching and educating our children that they may be able to serve God and the world.
