VBS 2018

Marketplace 29 A.D. ”A Bibletimes Experience”

VBS 2018:  Friday, June 22~Sunday, June 24

 

     You’ve heard the saying “it takes a village”?  That’s what we are praying will happen with VBS this year!  We have a new format and we’re very excited!  The green space outside Grace will become a marketplace.  Tribal families will be comprised of a “mom” and children of various ages.  Their home base will be a tent.  Families will frequent the marketplace to experience learning occupational skills of the times.  Lessons will come through drama that take place at the well in the center of our marketplace.  Stories will be told by the storyteller in the desert.

     Planning and registration have begun!  We have many miles to go!  We hope that you will prayerfully consider how you might be involved!

 

Groundskeeper(s):

While this may seem daunting, a number of resources are already in place!  We need you to:

*become familiar with our curriculum and church grounds to create our “Marketplace” atmosphere;    

*recruit set~up and break~down crews;

*secure tents (approximately 4~6) for tribal families (1 adult/8 children);

*secure canopies for storyteller, shops and over the center of our Marketplace;

*”build a well” at center of Marketplace;

*secure and place snow fence around green space;

*secure sawhorses and plywood for shopkeepers;  and

*secure stakes for tribal banners and wooden forms for brick making.

 

Drama leader:

There will be 3 or 4 short dramatizations that take place at the well on Sat., June 23rd.

We need you to: 

*become familiar with materials;

*supply dcm with a list of costumes/props/sound and microphone needs as necessary;

*recruit actors/distribute scripts to actors/oversee drama rehearsals; and

*remind actors of “performance” times.

 

Shopkeepers:

We will need approximately 5~10 shopkeepers on Saturday, June 23rd between 10 and 4.

All materials will be provided.  We need you to:

*become familiar with pertinent information regarding your shop; and

*set up and lead a craft or manage a shop at which the children will browse.

 

Friday night family meal:

We will need people to help lead, prep, serve and clean up our pasta bar at 5:30 p.m. on the 22nd.

 

Saturday fun night family meal:

We will need people to help lead, prep, serve and clean up our evening meal on the 23rd.  This will be burgers and hotdogs/picnic style.

 

All of these positions will work closely with the director of children’s ministries!  You will be strongly supported!  We appreciate your willingness to help bring this amazing experience to Grace!  Please let me know if you have questions and if you are willing to serve!

NEW Community Shelter meal

Grace Lutheran donates the evening meal for the NEW Community Shelter, on the second Saturday of each month.  The people served are NEW residents and people from the community, who can’t quite make ends meet.  They are all ages, from small children to elderly.  All are very thankful.

This past month, the count was 188.  We were lucky that we had extra food, so 42 people came through a second time.

Grace provides 4 Servers, 30 Meatloaves and 7 Desserts.  Servers are there from 4:30 to 6.  No cleanup.  Meatloaves should weigh 2 pounds each.  Deserts should serve 24 and up.  They can be dropped off at the Shelter front desk even a day or two before. Sign up sheets are on the desk in the parlor.  Please consider helping in any way.

Thank you to all the generous donors who contribute each month. To be added to the call list, contact the Church Office, 920 432-0308.
