It's VBS season - here's a look at St. Mark's Lutheran

This the season for Vacation Bible School.

First out of the shoot is St. Mark's Lutheran. Making frogs on lily pads are (from left) Kaelah Yeary, Karissa Fox, Brianna Lambert, Robyn Newland, and Hannah Hines.


Camp Discovery is this year's theme. The children learn Bible stories, memorize a Bible verse, and have fun, too - play games and make crafts.

The coins they give this year will go to Lutheran disaster relief. Children will also bring food items for the Ada Food Pantry.

The closing event was Friday with lunch and a program.
