Vacation Bible School (VBS) August 4-8, 2014

“Catch the Buzz!”

Through Catch the Buzz! Grace Lutheran Church invites children to add their hands, voices, minds, and hearts to being a part of God’s work in the world. Through Bible stories, games, crafts, snacks, stories and songs, children will learn about malaria and how it is affecting children around the world. They will also have the opportunity to join in the fight to end malaria. But, most importantly, children will learn about how much God loves them and all children. They will experience how God works through their hands and the hands of others to make a real difference in the world for God’s people.

                                         “God’s work. Our hands.”
WHEN:   August 4-8 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Lunch will be included.
Week concludes with family worship on Saturday, August 9, at 5:00 pm with a potluck to follow with highlights from our week.
WHO:   For all children age 4 through those having completed grade 5
There is no registration fee.
To sign up your child go to “Downloadable Forms” and hand in or e-mail to the church office.

Parents, Grandparents, Older Siblings, Relatives, Friends:

holy week2Holy Week is the high point of our worship. This week is totally focused on God’s great exchange – Jesus taking our sin and human limitations and giving us God’s eternal life and salvation.
Palm Sunday is the beginning of this week as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem as Messiah, Savior, Lord, and King, and the surprising twist Jesus gives to the notion of King.
Maundy Thursday literally means “commandment” Thursday – Jesus giving us a new commandment in the Lord’s Supper that we are to love others as God loves us.
♦ Marks the end of Lent by receiving individual absolution.
♦ Begins a three day worship of Jesus’ death and resurrection (there is no benediction, greeting, or dismissal on Maundy Thursday or Good Friday since it is all one worship service that does not end until Easter Sunday).
Good Friday is “good” because of God’s act of love and salvation in God dying for us.
Easter Sunday is the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. As Jesus is raised so we shall be also.

Palm Sunday   April 12 & 13 5:00 pm Saturday 8:30 and 10:45 am Sunday
Maundy Thursday April 17 at 1:00 and 7:00 pm
Good Friday April 18 at 1:00 and 7:00 pm
Easter Sunday April 20 at 6:30, 8:30, and 10:45 am Sunday (no Saturday Service)
