VBS at St. John’s Lutheran
St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lakeville will hold Maker Fun Factory VBS 9 a.m. to noon June 12-16.

Children from preschool to fourth grade will discover that God made them – and for a purpose.

Kids will participate in Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day will conclude with the Funshop Finale that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 11:30 a.m.

Kids at Maker Fun Factory VBS will join a missions effort to help create or provide materials for Mid-wife kits for countries in Africa.  Money donations are also accepted.
