VBS – – almost 50 students ROOTED for Christ!

What a fabulous week of Vacation Bible School!  There were almost 50 students each day, with 14-16 teen helpers, along with the four energetic camp staff that help us learn the importance of being ROOTED in Christ.  A special thanks to Lori Baade, Moi Hopkins, Heidi Freeburg, and Angie Cook for the hours of prep work they did to help make this week such a great success!  Also, thanks to everyone who helped provide or serve snacks, helped with registration, or provided supplies for the week.  This is definitely a whole-church project!  Thanks for your part in helping us help get God’s Word ROOTED in their hearts!


Below are just a few pics from the week!

The theme:  ROOTED – in Grace, Christ, Faith and Truth

The VBS Camp Counselors:  Hannah, Sam, Greta, Liz, and Dani Cook

And what is VBS without great songs??

…. and more great songs!!

And of course, great snacks each day!  (Becky Ives, Pam Radig, and Vicki Kerns – Wednesday kitchen crew)

Fun and Games at the closing party – – thanks, Lori!

And each student attending VBS got to take home their very own tree on Thursday, so they could watch it get ROOTED!

Thanks for sharing the VBS songs with our family and friends!  It was a GREAT week!  We hope you can come back and join us when Sunday School resumes this fall!

The theme “TRANSFORMED” comes from Romans 12:2

  • Monday:  Built on Jesus  (“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Heb 6:19a)
  • Tuesday:  Built with God’s Instructions  (“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Prov 16:9)
  • Wednesday:  Built to Rise Up (“…but those who hope in the Lord with renew their strength.  They will sour on wings likes eagles;  they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint.”  Is 40:31)
  • Thursday: Built to Go  (“Therefore go and make disciples of nations…”  Matt 28:19)

If you have any questions, please call the church office at 335-3663.  Let the fun begin and let’s be TRANSFORMED!!
