Vacation Bible Camp

Music, Drama, Crafts & so much more!

Get ready for a family adventure at First Lutheran Church as we learn about God's grace through our Vacation Bible School program: Knights of the North Castle.

We will be experiencing music, Bible stories, science experiments and crafts in small groups each night. Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armorinvites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book, the Bible.

Families will sign up for a time slot and walk through all the stations on the grounds of First Lutheran Church in the evenings.

Registration for First Lutheran Church of Columbia Heights, MN Vacation Bible School which takes place August 3-6th, with Aug 7th as our backup rain day. Each family comes as a group for this outdoor event.

Sign up for a time slot from 4:30-6:30 pm and go through our Music, Bible Story, Science at the Garden and Crafts stations. We'll have games and learning in the parking lot too!

We will stay socially distanced, with no contact activities and invite families to wear masks. This VBS will be for all ages. After you've visited each station families will pick up picnic lunches and a discussion guide so they can have dinner together and discuss what they've learned.
