Join other children from age 3 years old to those entering third grade in fall 2008 for a fun-filled week of scientific adventure, “Discovering Jesus’ Miraculous Power” at Vacation Bible School.

“This year our ‘Power Lab – Discovering Jesus’ Miraculous Power’ VBS program will provide fun and memorable Bible-learning activities for kids,” VBS Director Donna Richardson said. “Our fun-packed VBS will take place daily from 9 a.m. – noon July 7 – 11 at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church, 2390 North Road. Each day kids will move from one whirlwind activity to the next, taking part in fun Bible learning they can see, hear, touch and even taste. It will be a week fizzing with fun sure to make the kids bubble over with excitement.”

Power Lab VBS is a way for kids to learn more about Jesus’ miraculous power, she said.

“Get ready for a hyper-speed adventure, following Jesus as he heals, helps and gives power to people who need him,” Richardson said. “We are thrilled to have Ellen McBee returning as our coordinator for the opening skits and the Faith Fusion Finale, which will delight all.”

Throughout the week, the children will also be able to participate in a wonderful mission project by assisting children in underprivileged countries through Heifer International. Their contributions will help children and families around the world receive training and animal gifts that help them become self-reliant.

“It is going to be a wonderful experience in which we invite you to participate in,” Richardson said. “We hope Power Lab VBS will lift up Jesus’ miraculous power in Los Alamos.”

Back by popular demand is the Rainbow Trail Day Camp. The Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp staffers run the program for those entering fourth through seventh grade in the fall. The day camp will run July 7-11 from 8:45 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, 3900 Trinity. The Friday session will conclude at noon. The optional campout will start at noon Friday and go until 10 a.m. Saturday. During the week we’ll also make use of the Aquatics Center, Griffith Field and other outdoor locations.

The theme for the day camp this year will be “IS God calling you?” Kids will have a week of fun participating in activities including Bible Study, worship, arts and crafts, singing, fellowship, and nature studies. Day campers may choose to go on a campout on Friday night.

All youth entering grades four to seven in the fall 2008 are encouraged to sign up. You do not have to be a member of the congregation. Day camp is open to everyone.
