A summer kids’ event called Shipwrecked VBS will be hosted at:

Immanuel Lutheran Church located at 511 Russell Rd; DeKalb

from July 16 to July 19, 2018 (Monday—Thursday)

Shipwrecked is for kids from 3 years to 5th grade*

*Special programming for youth entering 6th grade—8th grade.

Class times are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon each day.

For more information, call 815-756-6669.

At Shipwrecked, kids discover that Jesus rescues them!  Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Sail Away Sendoff that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.

Kids at Shipwrecked VBS will join a missions effort to help others in need.

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.  Register before July 1 and get a free cd with the VBS music—cost of the cd after July 1 is $8.


*A special, and separate, “middle-school” camp will be available for youth

entering grades 6th—8th.  

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!
