Vacation Bible School 2020: August 16—August 20

Rainforest Explorers:  Jesus Leads the Way

Approximately 39 children—ages pre-school through grade six-- gathered for Vacation Bible School at St. John during the week of August 16-20.  A light meal was followed by devotions, lessons, music, crafts, activities, and snacks.  Students explored Bible stories centered on God’s love shown to us through His Son Jesus.


 Melissa Seelhammer and Dianne Salge registered students as parents brought them to St. John for Vacation Bible School.

 At 5:30 p.m., before Vacation Bible School activities began, parents and children alike enjoyed a light meal and family fellowship.

 Pastor, helped by Bonnie and Julie, led the opening devotion with a message based on the evening lesson theme.

Pre-schoolers through kindergarten children take part in a relay contest to get enough water in the pool to float Noah’s ark.

Grades one and two learn songs based on the VBS theme during their music time.

Third and fourth grade students concentrate on their Bible lesson.

 Pre-schoolers through kindergarten children listen as the evening’s Bible lesson is told and discussed.

First and second grade children work on a craft which complements the lesson for the day.

Students in grades five and six work on their craft project.

 A snack based on the evenings' Bible lesson is enjoyed by students in grades five and six.

With the help of the VBS music leaders, Pastor led the children who attended Vacation Bible School--as well as the teachers, helpers, and parents--through the VBS closing devotion and program.
