Please join us for Vacation Bible School
July 16-20, 2018
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
All children ages 3 through 5th grade are invited! New this year: Adult Study - VBS isn't just for kids!
This year’s theme takes children on a whitewater rafting adventure to experience the ride of a lifetime with God! Along the river, children discover that life with God is an adventure full of wonder and surprise and that they can always trust God to be with them through anything.
The children of Apostle Presbyterian, First United Methodist and Mount Hope Lutheran will ride the rapids of Amazing Grace!
Rolling River Rampage has spirited music, exciting science, creative crafts, fun recreation and memorable Bible stories to help kids know that God is always with them.
WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH THE WATERS, I WILL BE WITH YOU. Isaiah 43: 2
VBS is a free weeklong event. For additional registration forms, please contact the church office. PLEASE RETURN THE REGISTRATION FORM TO THE CHURCH OFFICE BY JULY 8, 2018.
Each day at VBS, the children will learn Bible verses, act out Bible stories, sing contemporary biblical music, watch and participate in skits, create crafts, play games in recreation, take part in a mission project, discover science activities, and have a healthy snack. Nursery care will also be provided.
Each family who registers will receive a free Rolling River Rampage music CD.
During VBS this year, the VBS student Rafters will explore God’s promises for their lives. The Rafters will discover ways to serve others and God. Our mission project will be the Hope Closet. The Hope Closet is a ministry that provides new clothing for children and their families who are in need. They may be living in a shelter, with another family, or even in their car. The Hope Closet receives referrals directly from the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District.
We ask that all of our VBS kids bring some change each day that will be collected during the opening session for the mission project. We will have a speaker from the Hope Closet visit us during VBS week.
On Thursday evening from 6:30pm -7:30pm, the children will present a VBS program with word and song. Afterward, all will enjoy an ice cream treat. And on Friday, the wonderful week of new friends and learning will end with a lunch.
To get started on this amazing adventure, come to the River Outlook Center (Mt. Hope Lutheran 8633 W. Becher St.). Join us as we go rolling down the river and experience the ride of a lifetime with God!
KEEP CALM AND RAFT ON!
