Trinity Lutheran Church in New York Mills held its annual Vacation Bible School this week, Sunday through Thursday.

The theme this year was "Crocodile Dock: Where Fearless Kids Shine God's Light". VBS began each evening with supper at 5:30, followed by Sing & Song Swamp Stomp.

Pre-schoolers then headed off to the Rocky's Preschool Playhouse area for Bible Adventures & Missions, Games, Chadder's Theater, and Craft & Play. Elementary kids traveled in multi-age "bayou crews" to Bible Bayou, Crawfish Crafts and Missions, Dockside Drive-in, and Gator Games.

Vacation Bible School concludes Thursday with the Firefly Family Campfire Finale with roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.
