St. John’s planning annual vacation Bible school

St. John’s Lutheran Church, 1200 13th Ave. NW in Austin, will host its annual vacation Bible school June 19-23.

VBS is for 3-year-olds to children completing fifth-grade. Each day begins at 9 a.m. and a light lunch will be provided daily from noon to 12:30 p.m. and parents are welcome to join. Both VBS and lunch are free of charge.

This year’s theme is “A Mighty Fortress” is in celebration of 500 years since the Reformation. At VBS, kids learn that God is their refuge and strength. Friends may fail them. They may not ace their test or make the team, but God promises to be their rock and their salvation—their fortress and sure defense.

People can join for crafts, play and lessons.

Early registration would be very helpful. To register, call St. John’s at 507-433-2642 or stop by the office Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to noon.
