Multi church vacation Bible school coming up

July 6, 2022
The Cushman family will bring live sheep to the Multi-Church Vacation Bible School at Trinity Lutheran Church on “I AM the Good Shepherd Day." Daughter Avery, pictured here, is a very loving human shepherd!

Mark your calendars for three days of exciting Vacation Bible School Tuesday through Thursday, July 19-21, for all kids entering kindergarten through grade six. This Multi-Church program will run from 12:30 to 4 p.m. at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 6784 Cody Street, Bonners Ferry. This year's theme is "The Great 'I AM' Words of Jesus."

Besides the usual VBS activities of Bible lessons, crafts, music/songs, science/discovery, snacks and games with old and new friends, this three-day program will have several unique features. Maren Hinderlie, Pastor Andy Hinderlie's sister, will be here from Mexico/Wisconsin to help make the Bible stories come alive each day. Maren is a professional story teller/dramatist, with a background in acting.

Another unusual feature will be live sheep on the Trinity lawn, brought by the Cushman family from their farm, for the "Jesus said, 'I AM the Good Shepherd' day."

The other two days- "I AM the Bread of Life” and “I AM the Light of the World” will also have special events.

At the end of VBS on Thursday, the young people will present a program at 4:30 p.m. for families and friends, followed by refreshments.

Beginning in 2013, four churches in Bonners Ferry started this co-operative VBS, making this is the ninth annual event, missing only 2020 because of COVID.

Register early to beat the long lines on the first day by filling out and returning a form for each child—available at any of the four churches: Church of the Nazarene, Springs of Living Water Free Methodist, Trinity Lutheran and Bonners Ferry United Methodist, at Hair Connection downtown or online on Facebook at Bonners Ferry Multi-Church VBS.
