VBS climbs for mission project goal



June 18, 2013 - 12:00 AM

As the Grace Lutheran Church’s Vacation Bible School ended its first day Monday, shouts filled the sanctuary.
“Go tell it on the mountain,” Kim Kristalyn, VBS director, said.
Kids replied back with shouts, “That Jesus Christ is Lord!”
Grace Lutheran started its VBS this week with 48 kids registered. The program runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
This is the fifth year the church has had VBS in its new building.
Kristalyn said the Bible school does not require a registration fee. Instead, they collect an optional offering throughout the week to help raise money for a special cause.
“Our mission project this year is build a Mountain of Hope with the Ready Now: Disaster Response Fund,” Kristalyn said.
Ready Now helps children who have been affected by disasters like earthquakes, floods and tornadoes.
“For every $2 we raise, $1 will go for Ready Now and the other dollar will go toward VBS expenses,” Kristalyn said.
The Bible school has a goal of $200.
The decorations in the sanctuary include a mountain and a fire. There are also flags that have important messages that the kids learn throughout the week.
The kids also make crafts throughout the week, have music, game and snack time and learn Bible stories from Pastor Bruce Kristalyn.
On Friday the kids will be able to take home keepsakes from the program.
Kristalyn said that kids can still register by calling 365-6468.
