Zion Lutheran Children's Ministry

July 2022 Newsletter

Hello from Ms. Rachel!

July is here and I am not sure how that happened! For our family, June was filled with VBS preparation. The month flew by but boy was it worth it- Monumental VBS was AMAZING! We spent the week learning about Joseph and his coat, his brothers, Potiphar and then Pharaoh. I know that each participant walked away with more Bible knowledge, a deeper understanding of God and a renewed excitement for their relationship with Him. There were many amazing moments throughout the week. A highlight for me was overhearing a visitor to our church, as he walked down the hall on the last night, say "I am really going to miss this place."

As much as I plan on savoring the last half of summer I am also looking forward to and praying over our Fall Kick-Off of Connection Hour. We will be implementing new curriculum for preschool through 5th grade and building off of an incredible first year of Kids Connect.

Please join me in prayer for Children's Ministry here at Zion and let me know if you feel God tugging at your heart to walk alongside our precious kiddos and serve as they grown their faith!

VBS was a MONUMENTAL success!

Thank you VBS Volunteers!

My heart is overflowing with gratitude for all of our amazing VBS volunteers. Looking through these photos I see excited and smiling faces engaging with the kids. I am reminded of what an awesome God we serve and I know He was smiling down on us last week. Making sure VBS is a fun and safe environment for 120 kids is no easy task. I could not have done it without your help. Thank you for serving along side me!
