Free Vacation Bible School in Battle Lake

On July 24-27, four area ELCA Lutheran churches will be jointly sponsoring a free Vacation Bible School. The host site of VBS this year will be First Lutheran Church of Battle Lake. All students who have completed grades K through sixth grade are welcome to register and attend regardless of church affiliation, including children visiting the lakes area with grandparents or on family vacation.

Each day will begin at 9 a.m. and finish at 3 p.m. A snack will be provided but each child is requested to bring a sack lunch.

Registration is required and may be completed at any of the sponsoring churches. Registration may also be completed July 24 by arriving 15 minutes early. The day camp will be led by the counselors of luther Crest Bible Camp. There is no cost for this day camp.

The theme this year will focus on water and its life-giving properties. The week will culminate on Thursday, July 27 at 2:30 p.m. with a closing program that is open to the public at no charge. This program will be followed by rootbeer floats for everyone in attendance.
