Lutheran Vacation Bible School Madison WI

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is fun for all ages, children and adults, beginning the second Monday in August each summer. For four days, our children and youth travel through different stations each night learning the Bible point through games, art, creative drama and even snack time. The evening includes fellowship with a family meal, a group opening presentation, and adult Bible study led by the pastors. This is a multi-generational event at Midvale. For more information, contact Brenda Goble at 238-7119 or brendag@midvalelutheran.org.

You can help!

Here are some of the needs we have for VBS if you are willing to help us out! Even if you won't be here the week of VBS, there are some food & snack needs that could be brought in at any time! (All snack items need to be here by Monday night at 6:00 pm.)

Children age 3, 4, and 5 year old not starting kindergarten in September are invited to attend Tinker Tots Preschool where they will have age appropriate stories, crafts, and games with less transitioning around the building.

Youth who are in kindergarten through high school will be invited to join a multi-age crew which will rotate to various stations throughout the church for Bible Discovery, Snack Factory, Game Makers, Imagination Station, and Kid-Vid Cinema. Even youth who think they are “too old” to participate can be of great service as mentors/helpers.

Adults may attend a Bible study just for them! Or, we’d love to have your help one or more nights.

During VBS, photos will be taken for use in print and web advertisements for MCLC. If your child cannot be photographed, please send a written request to Brenda Goble (brendag@midvalelutheran.org). In this case, your child will have a different colored lanyard or wristband to indicate that their photo will not be taken.

If you are not available in an emergency, what is the name & number of someone else we may contact?
VBS is a high energy experience! We do a lot of dancing, running & playing as we transition around the church. Does your child have any medical or behavior concerns we should be aware of? If you would prefer to discuss in person or over the phone just indicate you’d like a follow up here!
A snack will be served each night. Please list any food allergies/concerns. For multiple registrants, please list name associated with reply.
Are there any nights that you know you will not attend? Check all that apply.
