Vacation Bible School – The Wonders of God’s Creation

As Christians, we view the world through God’s Word with eyes blessed to see by the Holy Spirit.  We see the Father in heaven’s love all around us in sea and mountain, birds and beasts. Through Christ, we know God is not far off but with us always even until the end of this age.

It has the makings of a happy VBS to which all are welcome. The main requirement is that you can sit still.  If you have trouble with that maybe your mother or father could also come and sit next to you. If you have a neighbor or cousin or someone you love who might like to come too, please bring them.

These are a few notes about our teachers for the week:

  • Brian Clapp is an engineer who worked on the Hubble telescope.
  • Ron Brandhorst spent his life teaching children science at Lutheran High School.
  • John Oss is the congregation’s photographer.  He spent many years as a nuclear engineer in the Air Force overseeing Hydrogen spectroscopy, Ion and Raman microscopy instrument development, Satellite design, analysis and launch.
  • Mark Brand works at Children’s hospital in psychiatric emergency services helping children in crisis and is writing a chapter for one of Linda Bartlett’s upcoming books.
  • Dr. Melanie Badtke participated for many years in cancer research and teaches science at Regis University.
  • Linda Sherrill is a mother that has a degree in biology and chemistry and has firsthand experience with children developing in the womb.

Music for the week will focus on the Creation and the praise of the Creator. Our theme music for the week will be the canticle, All You Works of the Lord, Praise the Lord (LSB 931); this will be sung WITH the congregation next Sunday.

Other music will include:

  • Now Thank We All our God
  • Thy Strong Word
  • I Will Sing My Maker’s Praise
  • …and many more hymns!
