St. John’s Lutheran hosted 291 children ages three through ten for Mighty Fortress Vacation Bible School July 10-14. During the theme-integrated camp, children learned that the victory is won in Jesus while hearing Bible stories, playing games, and making crafts.
As a service project, the children donated loose change to help underprivileged children in Honduras. The original goal was to collect an average ten-year-old’s weight, or about 70 pounds. In the end, 230 pounds (an equivalent of $1,459.08!) was collected. Because the campers exceed the original goal set before them, several VBS leaders, including Assistant Pastor Andy Becker and Student Pastor Ben Berteau agreed to be tarred (with chocolate sauce!) and feathered.
Always held the second week in July, St. John’s VBS is completely free and open to children in the community.
