St. Luke's offers VBS

Want to take a family vacation without leaving home?

Lakes area families are invited to Jerusalem Marketplace, a Vacation Bible School experience in which participants travel back into Bible times -- without setting foot outside the community.

This free, hands-on, Bible-times village will be set up in St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Detroit Lakes.

Each day families --children and parents or other caregiver -- can feel like part of history as they see, hear, touch and even taste what it was like to live in Bible times. Explore authentic marketplace shops, become students in synagogue school, take part in games, dance to lively Bible songs and sample tasty tidbits to discover more about life when Jesus walked the earth.

Families join together to form small tribal families -- one of the 12 tribes of Israel. VBS will be Sunday through Wednesday, June 1-4. The adventure starts with a simple supper at 6 p.m., followed by 6:30 p.m. Bible school and will end at 8:30 p.m. Families may register for this Bible adventure by calling 844-5185.
