VBS: Faith on Fire! June 11-15

posted Apr 14, 2017, 7:13 AM by Gethsemane Lutheran Church   [ updated Apr 21, 2017, 10:26 AM ]
Monday – Thursday, June 12-15    
9:30 am – 2:30 pm

Opening meal at 6:00 pm on Sunday, June 11

$60 per child. Scholarships available.

Kids will spend time at VBS learning about how their faith is a gift from God and how that faith can motivate their lives. Using daily themes of Gather, Build, Ignite, and Feed, the Green Lake Counselors will guide kids through fun and meaningful Bible studies, crazy crafts, active games and singing their favorite camp songs.

New this year – we are moving to days so we have more time to spend with your kids! That means more games, more outdoor time and more fun!  

Sunday evening we will start with a family meal at 6:00 pm. After we eat together the parents and kids will go to the registration table, meet counselors from Green Lake Bible Camp and learn about the fun they will have during Faith on Fire!  

Monday through Thursday kids will meet from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm.  Lunch will be provided or your child can opt to bring a bag lunch. 

For families needing all day childcare we are offering Kid’s Care: 

Let us watch your kids and let them help others through daily, age-appropriate service projects. Kids love to help others and in this nurturing environment led by Nina Zieska the kids will have opportunities to learn about different local and international service organizations.  We will offer structured service projects, active play and down time to meet all of the kid’s needs.

Kid’s Care is available for children enrolled in the Gethsemane VBS program and will be held Monday - Friday. 

Kid’s Care Morning Session is from 7:30 – 9:30 am and is available for preschoolers through 6th graders. The cost is $50.00.

Kid’s Care Afternoon Session is from 2:30 to 5:30 pm and is available for Kindergartners through 6th graders. The cost is $50.00. 

Since the VBS program is Monday through Thursday we will offer a full day of Kid’s Care on Friday. If your child is signed up for both the morning and afternoon session they will get to attend the all-day Kid’s Care on Friday free of charge. If your family is signed up for only one of the sessions the cost for Friday is $20.00.
