Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School at Resurrection is a unique experience. We enjoy all the same activities as a typical Vacation Bible School: arts and crafts, recreation time outside, treats, Bible stories, and music.
What makes our week unique is that we do it all through a musical. Throughout the week the children learn the music and words to a musical that tells a Biblical story. Middle and high school students act as counselors, shepherding the kids through the process, playing outdoor games with them, singing with them and leading by example. Sets and costumes are created by volunteers and a host of people come and play in the Resurrection pit orchestra for the Friday night performance.
This year's camp was held June 25-29, and featured the musical "Old Testament, Fast Forward". We had 67 students in attendance, 10 counselors and 30 adult volunteers! Thank you to all who donated to this year's VBS mission, Lutheran Social Services Refugee Services. With your generosity, we were able to fill 46 backpacks for refugee students who will begin school in Minnesota this fall. We also collected over $1400 for LSS Refugee Resettlement Services. Thank you for your generous donations!
