VBS Service Project:  School Kits for Lutheran World Relief

One of the projects during the week of VBS will be to assemble school kits that will be distributed around the world to children in need.  As we get closer to July school supplies will start to be on sale.   Our goal is that each child at VBS will be able to assemble two whole kits which means supplies for 250 school bags.  A supply donation list is below and we’d love your help!  Thank you!

When considering supplies, please note that they need to be new, and may not have any messaging, or religious, military, or patriot images or symbols.  Plain items are best.  

  • 4 spiral notebooks - 70 sheet count, wide or college ruled
  • 1 ruler, with centimeter markings at least on one side
  • 1 pencil sharpener
  • 1 pair of blunt nose scissors
  • 5 unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers
  • 5 black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink)
  • 1 box of 16 or 24 crayons
  • 1 eraser, 2 1/2 inches

More information may be found at and donations may be dropped off in the church office labeled for “School Kits” at any time or brought to VBS.  Thanks!

Bible Jeopardy: Sunday, June 3, at 10:00 a.m. in the Fireside Room.

It’s time to review! Back by popular demand, the last Sunday of Sunday school will once again host Bible Jeopardy to recap the year from 10:00 - 10:55 in the Fireside Room!

Bring your family and fans to help cheer your team on! Grades 1- 12 will challenge each other and there is a rumor that a brave adult team might enter! (You can do it parents!)

Bring cookies or bars to share! (No nuts please.) Click the link below for review sheets of all of the stories we have studied this year or pick up a copy at church. These make a great devotional activity for the home as well.

Please contact Beth Tobin for more information. Have fun!!
