Vacation Bible School will be held August 15th -19th. Our theme this year is "God's Wonder Lab." A light meal will be served at 5:30 p.m. We will kick off each evening at 6:00 p.m. with opening and then head off to different sites of Storytelling, Snacks, Games, Crafts, Music, and other fun surprises. We will gather together at 7:50 p.m. for closing, review of the lesson, and how everything ties together from the different sites and activities. We will also sing some cool and fun songs. More information will be coming regarding age groups for students as well as donation opportunities for adults.
Vacation Bible School at St. John was promoted/advertised during the June Jubilee Parade on June 10. Below are some photos taken before the parade started. The parade entry was a joint effort between the Board of Evangelism and the Board of Christian Education.
St. John Youth Fundraising Activities
Youth from St. John have started a couple of ongoing fundraising ventures to help cover expenses related to Lutheran Island Camp tuition and the upcoming National Youth Gathering. Scrip gift cards are available for purchase as well as candy bars from The World's Finest Chocolate. The youth receive a rebate from each gift card sold and a percentage of the cost of each candy bar.
When you purchase a gift card from the youth scrip program, the merchant returns a portion of the money spent to the youth of St. John. This is a marvelous way to support our youth programs at no extra cost to the purchaser!
St. John Youth look over the array of delicious candy bars they have for sale after the Sunday service.
Pastor Meltzer and Bonnie E. lead the Sunday School students in singing their favorite Bible-based songs during the opening of Sunday School. All students are invited/encouraged to attend Sunday School classes at 10:15 AM on Sundays after the Divine Worship Service to read the narratives of our "fathers in faith" as recorded in the Bible.
