Thank you to all of our volunteers and families who made this years VBS so much fun! Check out Facebook to see pictures of the fun!
Each year Gethsemane VBS has a service project component. Because the curriculum focuses on a global and local aspect, we have two service projects:
We raised $466 in monetary donations to ELCA World Hunger Relief
We collected 140 pounds of rice for our local partner:
Isaiah 58 Ministries.
Day 1 Theme: God loves us.
Theme verse: “We love because God first loved us” (1 John 4:19).
Day 2 Theme: Let your light shine.
Theme verse: “Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon” (Isaiah 58:10 New Living Translation).
Day 3 Theme: No fear.
Theme verse: “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear” (1 John 4:18a).
Day 4 Theme: God loves everyone.
Theme verse: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears God and does what is right is acceptable to God” (Acts 10:34b-35).
Day 5 Theme: Building God’s neighborhood. Theme verse: “Each of us must please our neighbor for the good purpose of building up the neighbor” (Romans 15:2).
We are able to keep our costs low thanks in part to financial support from Thrivent Financial and our generous Gethsemane members. You or your children do not need to be members of Gethsemane to join in the Vacation Bible School Fun!
