VBS 2015

Monday: Crown of Victory
Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. (1 Corinthians 9:25)

Tuesday: Crown of Glory
And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. (1 Peter 5:4)

Wednesday: Crown of Rejoicing
For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? Indeed, you are our glory and joy. (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20)

Thursday: Crown of Life
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him. (James 1:12)

Friday: Crown of Righteousness
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day-and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:8)


Keeping Your Kids Safe

At Redeemer Lutheran Church, we want to ensure the safety of your children when they attend VBS. All of our volunteers have gone through our Safe Church training program in compliance with our Safe Church Policy.

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

The doors will open at 8:45 am for you to drop off your child in the church Sanctuary.

Preschool Parents: You may pick up your child in the gym beginning at 11:40 am. If you choose, you may take you child to sit in the Sanctuary for the daily closing with the elementary children.

Elementary Parents: You may pick up your child in the sanctuary at 12:00 noon.

On the registration form, you will find a place to list those people who are allowed to pick up your child. Our teachers will only release your child to one of the names you provide. Please make sure it reflects an accurate list.

No child will be allowed out into the parking lot without a parent or guardian. The parking lot is busy with activity at the end of the day.

Closing Program

We invite you to attend our VBS closing program on Friday, starting at 11:40 am in the Sanctuary where the children will present and sing many of the songs they have learned throughout the week.

Sunday, June 28th

We invite you back for our Sunday morning worship service at 10:45, in which all of the children who attended VBS are welcome to sing one of the songs they learned during the week.

Offering Projects

India Transformed
One sixth of the world's population lives in India. Children scavenge for food and have little hope for future opportunities. Countless women are abandoned and destitute. Less than 3% of Indians have the Hope of Jesus. Join us this VBS for Sharing Jesus' love and hope in India. As we practice giving up in order to provide for another's needs, we are reminded of what Jesus has given us. Imagine the excitement each day when your children bring their offerings to the front and pour them into the donation box. It will be a gift to the Lord, and we will send the money to help children in India. These children lack the basics of life. Your gift helps them with food, shelter, and education but most importantly introduces them to Jesus. He brings life to all people. May He pour out His life to the fullest measure on us as we participate in Sharing Jesus love and hope in India.

Redeemer Food Pantry
Bring your canned goods to VBS each day as we help to fill our food pantry with donations. This food will be given out to those in need in our own community. Many people in Peoria are hurting and in great need. Some of the items needed include peanut butter, canned soups, canned fruits and veggies, mac and cheese, spaghetti sauce, pasta, cereal, toilet paper, dish and laundry soap, etc.
