Salem Lutheran Church holds Mystery Island VBS
Salem Lutheran Church was pleased and excited to offer their Vacation Bible School “Mystery Island” to 87 students the week of July 13–17. A spokesperson for the VBS said, “Our kids grapple with questions like these every day: Is there just one God? Who is God? What is God like? Does God love me? Can I know God? At Mystery Island, students uncovered the truth about our Creator God! There’s a sea of confusion about who God is and what he’s like, so we tracked down the one true God and learned how amazing he is through the pages of Scripture. Mystery Island VBS was packed with teaching that connects the Bible to the real world and gives kids a better understanding of our awe-inspiring Creator and the salvation he offers through Jesus Christ.
Each day, kids learned more about one of God’s attributes (great, almighty, ruler, Emmanuel, trustworthy) and how that applies to their lives. From the minute the Islanders arrived at Mystery Island, they were able to find clues to uncover God’s true love at the various parts of VBS.
Lighthouse Bible Lessons: During the teaching time, islanders were able to track down truths about the one true God and discover he’s a priceless treasure.
Ride the Tide Games: The recreation location. At this spot, islanders attempted fun surf and sand challenges.
Tropical Treats: The snack spot. Islanders enjoyed island eatables at this yummy spot.
Deep Sea Science and Crafts: Electrifying science experiments were explored, creative crafts were invented and high-energy songs were sung.
Salem Lutheran Church also had 50 adult members, youth, and friends volunteer to help in the weeks leading up to and throughout their VBS week.
The Mystery Island curriculum is a production of Answers in Genesis.
Throughout the week offering gifts were made by the children. The funds gathered this year went to support the Hungry Hearts Lunch Program. Salem Lutheran Church is proud of the love and support that everyone showed. Thanks to the kids offerings $283.50 was donated to this project.
The members of Salem Lutheran Church would like to thank the parents and grandparents for bringing their children to VBS each day, for listening to them rehearse the VBS songs (over and over and over again), and for generously supporting the Hungry Hearts lunch program with their monetary donations. They look forward to providing another exciting VBS program next summer.
