IRON MOUNTAIN Mount Olive Lutheran Church of Iron Mountain will be hosting its annual Vacation Bible School program beginning Monday, Aug. 6 and coming to a close on Friday, Aug. 10.
The event will run from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. each day of that week. This special program is open to all children of the community, ages three to 12 years old, and enrollment is 100 percent free.
This year's theme is "An Amazing Desert Journey. "
"It is bound to be a fun and exciting way for all to learn about God's word," said a spokesperson.
Participants will experience a "desert journey" through the lands of the Bible, learning about how Jesus leads all through the journey of our own life, as we trek on towards heaven. The fun "desert journey" atmosphere will be enhanced through Bible stories, decorations, songs, art projects, and even desert-themed snacks.
Overview of the lessons children will learn during their five-day journey:
Monday: "Promises for the Journey - God promises to save us from sin."
Tuesday: "Provisions for the Journey - God provides all we need."
Wednesday: "Strength for the Journey - God gives us strength to resist temptation."
Thursday: "Hope for the Journey - God's Son rescues us."
Friday: "Joy for the Journey - God's Son leads us home to heaven."
