We want to thank the VBS at the Zion Lutheran Church for the fantastic baskets that the children from the school put together. We were able to hand them out during our quarterly resident meeting and I can tell you that all the recipients were thrilled.  Besides our residents being seniors, they are also on a fixed income. The efforts that were put into these baskets was well thought out and put together with love. If your Bible school ever wants to get involved with an event for the fine folks at Mount Olive Manor, please do not hesitate to reach out any time. Again, I cannot thank you all enough for your kindness.

God Bless,  Leigh Ann Clancy, Property Manager, Mount Olive Manor

2019 VBS Superintendent Needed

We are very fortunate that Emily Rochotte has volunteered to lead Vacation Bible School this summer and we thank her very much for doing this! However, she cannot do it next year. We are actively seeking next year’s superintendent now so that he/she can work with Emily and learn how to run the program. The reality is if we don’t find someone to replace Emily by this time next year we will not be able to have VBS in 2019. Please pass the word, prayerfully consider our needs, and help us keep this important outreach going. Thank you!

 

“Game On” for VBS – Please Register 

Join us July 16-20 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM for “Game On: Gearing up For Life’s Big Game” or for the new Vacation Bible School Junior, a one day program to introduce children ages 0-3 to the fun of VBS!  Registration forms are available in the Narthex. Please be sure to include your email address on the form. Please contact Emily Rochotte at [email protected] if you have questions.

 

National Day of Prayer for VBS is May 20th

To celebrate Zion’s upcoming Vacation Bible School, please pause for a moment on the National Day of Prayer for Vacation Bible School. Here are some specific prayer ideas you can share with your family.

  • Ask for God’s blessing over your church’s VBS and all who will be involved.
  • Pray for the teachers, volunteers, and workers who will serve during VBS. Ask God to receive their hours of preparation as a pleasing offering and for the Holy Spirit to be at work in and through them.
  • Pray for the children who will attend VBS and the families they represent. Ask God to begin preparing their hearts to respond to the Good News they will hear at VBS. Pray for their physical safety and emotional well-being during the week.
  • Pray for those who are unchurched in your community who will join your church for VBS. Ask God to soften your own heart and the hearts of your congregation to welcome, serve, and build relationships with everyone who enters your doors.
  • Pray for those who will share the gospel during VBS and those who will follow-up with children, students, adults, and families. Ask the Holy Spirit to give them clarity, guidance, and discernment.
  • Pray for churches around the world who will conduct a VBS, Backyard Kids Club, or other evangelistic outreach this summer. Pray for God’s Kingdom to be expanded. Thank God in advance for the blessings and opportunities He will provide through VBS.
