Vacation Bible School 2021

New Life Lutheran Church invites children preschool through eighth grade to participate in Vacation Bible School the mornings of Monday, July 26 through Friday, July 30 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM. The theme for this year's Vacation Bible School is: Soaring High. Float through the skies in this travel-themed Vacation Bible School! Soaring High! takes students on a hot air balloon adventure to learn core Biblical truths from locations around the world. As students reach their destination for the day, they will learn:

  • that Jesus is their best treasure.
  • that God made the world and everything in it.
  • that God wants us to look for ways to help others.
  • that praising God is a good thing.
  • that because of Jesus we will enjoy homes in heaven.
