Join us this summer for a great adventure! Vacation Bible School 2015 is Sunday, June 28- Thursday, July 2 from 5:30pm-8:30pm. We start with a kid-friendly dinner to make it easy for families on those busy weeknights. Kids age 3- entering 6th grade are invited! Older youth can serve as volunteers and assistant leaders.
The Youth Group, with the help of the parents, held a delicious picnic following the worship service. The pulled pork BBQ was donated by Shawn’s Smokehouse and the chicken was donated by The Culpeper Cattle Company. The free will offering collected will help pay expenses for Synod Assembly and other youth trips. Due to chilly weather we held our picnic in the Fellowship Hall and still were able to enjoy an indoor game of corn hole.
On Sunday December 16th, St. Luke’s children gave their performance of “It wouldn’t be Christmas without…” Following their show and the worship service we all gathered around for hot cocoa, cookies and good fellowship.
Three St. Luke’s Youth and one adult advisor attended 7th Day on March 3-4 in Lynchburg, VA. This excellent event for 5th and 6th graders is led by the Virginia Synod of the ELCA, and the youth had a blast! They are already planning to go again!
The theme for this year was: “Be Humble…Be Exalted…Be in God’s ‘Hood.” Check out the great images below.
6 St. Luke’s Youth and 1 adviser enjoyed a great weekend at Winter Celebration, a Virgina Synod ELCA youth event. Over 375 youth and leaders from all over the state participated at Eagle Eyrie Camp in Lynchburg, VA. The weekend was reinvigorating, full of faith, and surpassed expectations!
The theme was “Called to Peace” based on Colossians 3:15
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.
