Vacation Bible School 2021

Children entering K - 6th grades
Anacortes Lutheran Church Education Committee hosted this year's VBS July 12-15th in the evening.
It was a huge undertaking not knowing what COVID restrictions we will have or if it will be cancelled due to a rise in cases.
Nonetheless, God prevailed and gave us over 70 volunteers and 66 children in attendance.
Each day the kids sang praises to God, played games, learned about the One True God, ate snacks and sang praises again!
The daily themes were
Day 1 - God is Great
Day 2 - God is Almighty
Day 3 - God is Ruler
Day 4 - God is Trustworthy
Thank you to all the volunteers that helped behind the scenes with all the prep work, setting up, tearing down, clean up, moving treasure boxes, changing slides and playing the music, providing crafts and organizing snacks AND those that helped register the children when they arrived and signing them out when they left, teach the word of God to the children by leading them through VBS, act in the Drama and skit, play games, and share science experiments.
It was an awesome sight to see so many people in this church enthusiastically teaching and learning about the One True God. The voices of the children and adults singing praises together and shouting “God is Great!” shook the stones on this church. A special shout out to Kendra Kennedy’s family and to all the leaders for helping make VBS possible this year: Bill, Carol, Dorothy, Don, Paul, Rachel, Stacey, Lane, and Kenny. Thank you to all of our youth volunteers. Lastly, Thank you to this church for financially supporting our children’s ministry and outreach event.
