Vacation Bible School
Contact Duane Nelsen, (402) 483-4541

For one week each summer, the church is transformed into a castle, lagoon, lighthouse, airplane hangar, farm, or some other exotic locale for Vacation Bible School. The children have thematic Bible lessons, learn music, do crafts, and play games in a week that is edifying, a good outreach opportunity, and great fun for all involved.
