Gods Peace & Blessings to all of you!

I hope this message finds you and your family safe, and well. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the day that we can all be together to worship our God together again
 

Even though we haven’t been together in awhile, I’ve been hard at work planning our Christian Education programs for the future. I have some exciting things happening in the fall!

With this said, it’s time to announce the news that in the best interest of safety, the Executive Committee and I have decided we will not have a traditional indoor 5 day Vacation Bible School this year. This was an extremely difficult decision, that was done prayerfully for the best interest of the

church, the safety of our volunteers, and the children. I had a very exciting theme chosen, but it just won’t work in our “new (hopefully temporary) normal”.

I am however happy to announce that I am working on a 3 day Outdoor VBS program in the month of August. Details for this are still coming together. 

With this said if you are interested in Volunteering for our Outdoor VBS Adventure please contact me!

zionlutheraneducation@gmail.com

I will be putting together a list of interested volunteers and then set up a Zoom Meeting where we can discuss the plan for this years VBS!

 

I have spent many hours searching for a curriculum that we could effectively execute in an outdoor setting, and I hope you’ll be as excited and energized as I am when we release the theme!

I look forward to building our VBS Team and look forward to hearing from you! Please remember to contact me if you are interested in helping this year!

God Bless,

Michael Haspe

Christian Education Superintendent

Vacation Bible School Director
