VBS 2019 Generic

St. Matthew Lutheran Church

Inviting families to hear about Jesus!

This year at St. Matthew, we want to offer a VBS that's for everyone: children, parents, singles, everyone!  Whether you're 2, 22, 42, or 92, everyone's invited! 

Parents come with their children.  Grandparents can too! Adults, teens, singles, everyone is invited!

Created in Christ

We'll start each night with a free dinner served at 5:30pm.  Just a great chance to have fellowship and conversation with other Christians, and no need to stress over getting dinner prepared before an evening VBS.

From there, volunteers will lead children (age 3+) in Bible study and games, while teens and adults will also have a Bible study led by Pastor.  Little children are welcome to remain with their families in this Bible study.  Both groups will be learning the same topic from God's Word, so that families are encouraged to keep the conversation going at home!  The adult class will include a brief discussion each night that helps encourage parents and grandparents to share the faith with their children at home.

Both groups will come back together again for a craft activity each night, followed by a puppet show and a brief closing service.

The theme for the year is: Created in Christ, with a focus on how our identity doesn't come from the world or from how much stuff we have, but instead, our identity comes from Christ and what He has done for us!

Where do we learn our identity?  Christ teaches one thing; the world teaches another thing.  As the Church catechizes her young, so does the world.  Today, the world has many things to say about who we are and what our identity is. 

"Created in Christ" is a VBS program about our true identity as baptized children in Christ.  How did God create us?  What has the fall done to our identity?  How has Christ redeemed us?

Join us for VBS this year as we explore the beautiful truths of Christian identity!
