Vacation Bible School - VBS
During the week of August 10-14 St. Mark and St. Paul (York St.) Lutheran churches held their annual Vacation Bible School with a twist. We had 28 children register.
This year, because of social distancing requirements, VBS was done on line through YouTube.
The theme was “God’s Secret Messages” focusing on parables. Each day a different parable was presented along the games, music, crafts, and snacks appropriate to the lesson. The children learned about ‘The Weeds and the Wheat’ (Monday), The Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin’ (Tuesday), The Mustard Seed’ (Wednesday), and “The Good Samaritan’ (Thursday).
On Friday, families gathered on the lawn at St. Mark (socially distancing and wearing masks!) to review God’s Secret Messages, have some music, present their favorite crafts, and have a snack. We had 10 families present.
Gretchen Walter (St. Paul) did a wonderful job of coordinating, presenting and posting the videos. Michael Lobaugh filmed Karen’s message and presentation of the snack each day.
Thank you to all who helped make this virtual VBS a meaningful and fun time for the children!
