Faith briefs for the week of June 9

VBS at St. John’s Lutheran
A summer children’s event called Maker Fun Factory VBS will be hosted 9 a.m. to noon June 12-16 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lakeville.

At Maker Fun Factory, kids age 4 to fourth grade discover that God made them—and for a purpose. Kids participate in Bible-learning activities, sing 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 concludes 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 midwife kits for countries in Africa. Monetary donations are also accepted.
