Vacation Bible School – May 29 – June 3

“ROLLING RIVER RAMPAGE” VBS in Rembrandt May 29-June 3

Don’t panic – the Little Sioux River is not involved in this rampage. But Vacation Bible School participants in Rembrandt will experience “the ride of a lifetime with God.” Dates are Tuesday through Sunday, May 29 to June 3.

Rolling River Rampage VBS adventures are offered to area children ages 4 through those completing sixth grade. Sponsoring churches are the CHRISM parish, Our Savior’s Lutheran, Rembrandt, Trinity Lutheran, Linn Grove, Immanuel Lutheran, rural Alta, and Riverside Evangelical Free, Linn Grove. All activities will be at the Rembrandt location, with classes running 8:30 am to noon each weekday. The Sunday celebration service will begin June 3 at 10:30 am, followed by burgers and ice cream!

This VBS program will introduce Rafters (the kids) to a deeper relationship with God through the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rafters will encounter exciting Bible stories from the life of Jesus, explore God’s promises for their lives, and discover ways to serve God and others. Activities include great games, epic music, crafty crafts, spectacular science projects, yummy snacks and much more. The mission partner project this year is The Bridge of Storm Lake.

For more information contact Eloise Obman 286-5579 or any of the sponsoring churches.

National Day of Prayer 7 pm May 3

The public is cordially invited to gather to observe the National Day of Prayer, at 7 pm Thursday May 3, at Riverside Church in Linn Grove.
