In Jesus the Victory is Won!  At Mighty Fortress, kids will 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. So raise your banner! In Jesus, the victory is won! At Mighty Fortress, kids will hear real Bible stories about real people to learn real life lessons from Scripture. From the Opening to the Closing, every aspect of VBS is designed to help them better understand the Bible and grow in their faith.

Cost:    Freewill donation will be gratefully accepted

(Note:  We encourage a minimum contribution of $6/child per day to help cover programming.  It is our desire to make this ministry available to all children, therefore there will not be a set registration fee.—If you are able, consider donating above the suggested amount so that another child might attend also!)  Make checks payable to Immanuel Lutheran Church.



*A special, and separate, “middle-school” camp will be available for youth entering 6th grade—8th grade.  

This will be run the same dates as VBS — but be an entirely different program geared

specifically to older youth.  Let us know if you have a child who is interested and watch for more details!
