Hello Parents and welcome to Part II of The Tree of Life VBS. Here, children will continue our lessons from last year, as they learn more about God’s plan of salvation and redemption for our sins.

Our theme focuses on God’s relationship with His people through his covenant promises. Each day the children will learn what it means to be a child of God, learning another aspect of Our Lord’s plan to bring us back into fellowship with Him, starting with His promises to Abraham!

God’s plan for Abraham takes us through the covenant promises made with Abraham and how the substitution of a ram for Isaac foreshadows the crucifixion of Jesus.

David and Goliath teaches us how God gives us strength against even the mightiest of armies!

Daniel in the Lion’s Den and the Fiery Furnace demonstrates God’s love for us, and how He protects us when we are faithful and stand fast when others do not.

Jesus Preaches the Kingdom tells about Jesus’ struggle with the devil in the desert and His ministry.

The Crucifixion and Resurrection explain the central role of the cross in Jesus’ final victory over sin, death and the power of the Satan.

We are looking forward, with anticipation, to meeting you and your child(ren) and are planning a fun time for all in a loving and “Spirit-filled” environment. The morning will be filled with bible stories, games, recreation, music, crafts and of course snacks! (Please make sure that you inform us of any food allergies on the registration form.)

The hours will be from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM. To ensure that there will be someone available to care for your child, we ask that you do not drop him/her off prior to 8:45 or leave him/her later than 11:45. Each day there will be an Opening and a Closing service. Please feel free to join your child(ren) for those activities.

Following the closing each day your child(ren) will be dismissed to your care or that of the person designated in writing to transport your child(ren). Please understand that this is for the safety of your child. You will also be requested to come into the sanctuary where your child will be waiting for you with their teacher.

On Friday, August 4 at 11:00 AM, we are planning to have a brief closing program. It will consist of a few songs from VBS sung by the children, and distribution of certificates of participation. The program should end by 11:30 AM. We hope that you make arrangements to attend along with your family and your friends. All are welcome.

Our VBS program is open to all children from Preschool age 3 & 4 (must be potty trained) through 6th grade (Sept. 2023). There is no charge for the program. There will be a donation box in the narthex for contributions, and we will be taking a free will offering at the closing program.

If you are able, and have some time that you would like to volunteer to assist please contact the church office or email me at

Registration forms may be mailed or emailed to the church. If you have any questions or concerns that have not been answered in this letter, feel free to contact me by email or at (603-899-9499).

Yours in Christ Jesus,
