About 30 kids attended Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer, and about 9 pounds of Swedish fish were given out throughout the week – in keeping with the nautical theme of Gateway to Galilee. There were crafts, exercise on the lawn, themed snacks, and singing to open and close each day. On Friday, the kids gave a performance for the parents.
On Sunday, August 24, the kids from VBS presented a check for $105.38 to Mike Youse, the Executive Director of the Lutheran Camping Corporation. The money was raised from VBS offering throughout the week. Mr. Youse also received a check from Sandy and Kelsey Shaffer, who raised $100 this summer through the sale of cakes and homemade dishcloths at church.
