Churches partner for in-person vacation bible school
vacation bible school

Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church has partnered with St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church to host a collaborative Vacation Bible School (VBS) on June 22-24 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

This joint program is free to children from rising pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. Their VBS will turn its attention to the feelings of children through the lens of the parable in Holy Scripture about two brothers and a father who were lost and found (Luke 15:11-32).

Children will be invited to explore and honor their feelings in a safe environment through Bible drama, crafts, music, games, prayer and food. The goal is to make sure that the young participants know they are loved and there are adults who will help them work through feelings like fear and celebrate feelings like joy. Learning to explore emotions teaches children about how God has made everyone unique and in God’s own image and likeness.

“This summer program is a great way for the children in our community to get acquainted with their peers again in a setting that is spiritual, safe and fun,” said Spirit of Peace Pastor Devin Strong. “Spirit of Peace would like to thank St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church for agreeing to partner with our church to provide this vacation bible school to the community.”
