St. John’s Lutheran hosted 328 children ages three through ten for Splash Canyon Vacation Bible School July 9-13 from 8:30 am-12 pm. During the theme-integrated camp, children learned that Jesus is on their side for life’s wild ride while hearing Bible stories, playing games, and making crafts.
As a service project, the children donated $1508.25 for Kade’s Playground in Herculaneum. Because the goal set before them was reached—and exceeded—Vicar Austin Wellhousen, Pastor Andy Becker, Pastor Jeremy Schultz, and VBS Director and Director of Children’s Ministry, Haley Link, got all wet in a classic homemade dunk tank!
Haley Link explains, “Vacation Bible School is an outreach event. We look forward to welcoming children from the community and teaching them about Jesus in a high-energy, fun, and engaging way. I think we accomplished just that!”
Always held in July, St. John’s VBS is completely free and open to children in the community.
