New Life Lutheran Church invites children preschool through eighth grade to participate in Vacation Bible School the mornings of Monday, August 5 through Friday, August 9 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM. The theme for this year's Vacation Bible School is: Spirit of Life-A Holy Spirit VBS. Students will learn the third article of the Nicene Creed and how the Holy Spirit is active throughout history.
The program will be held on the church grounds. On the last day of VBS, a picnic lunch will be served as a wrap-up for our week.
There is no cost or obligation for VBS (There is a nominal fee for Volleyball Camp, see below.) Freewill gifts can be given to defray the cost of materials. If you have any questions you can call the church at 847-438-5018.
Bring your kids to learn a story from the Bible, sing some songs, make projects to take home, play games, enjoy snacks and close out the morning with a reminder of what they've learned. Register your children today!

The cost for the camp is $50, which includes a t-shirt. This fee may be paid on the first day of camp. At camp the kids will learn the fundamental skills needed to play volleyball, the rules of the game and most of all, how to have fun playing volleyball.
Volleyball camp will be open only to kids who attend VBS. Kids attending VBS and volleyball camp bring a sack lunch which gets put in the fridge until 11:30 AM. To attend the sand volleyball camp as well as VBS, check the appropriate box on the registration form below.

Please submit one registration for each child you wish to sign up.
