(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – Trinity Lutheran Church’s Youth Leaders are offering a Summer Vacation Bible School from Tuesday July 10th to Thursday July 12th.
The three day event will run from 9 AM to 12 PM at the Trinity Lutheran Church in beautiful Bisee. The program is free of charge and open to children from the ages of 3 to 12.
Trinity’s preschool director Evodia Cassius says, “It is no doubt that a greater percentage of St. Lucians are Christians. What we have discovered however, is that many of the children we run across can’t tell you even the most basic account of the birth, resurrection and death of Christ. Either the message is not getting across in a way that they can internalize it or it is simply not being taught” says the St Lucian born Cassius. “Summer Vacation Bible schools and similar programs not only teach life skills and morals, but link even the youngest of children with their Savior Jesus Christ. No one argues the importance of spirituality in the development of children. So opportunities like this are vital for happy, healthy kids who will be thrown into a chaotic world.”
The theme this year will be LIVE LEARN and LEAD. The program not only focuses on Bible stories and songs, but a large part of it will include outdoor activities and sports. Staff Minister at Trinity and former St Lucia Junior Crickter says, “With so many video devices in our childrne’s lives today, we find it vital to link the children’s faith with athletics and movement. We have got to get our children moving and this is another way to do it.”
Trinity has two active youth groups and both will be participating in the organization and carrying out of this year’s Summer Vacation Bible School. Trinity Lutheran Youth Group is made up of secondary school children. The Christians in Action Youth Group is made up of those who have graduated from secondary school. Also participating this year is some of the youth group from St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Antigua.
