VBS: Southside Ministries
This is the 28th year for Southside Ministries Vacation Bible School, which met July 9 through 20 at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity. The free program was open to anyone in preschool through eighth grade. Participants could attend any one or all of the sessions.
The evenings began with a brief biblical story and discussion lead by one of the churches in the ministry. Then, participants rotated through four stations each evening.
Three of the stations were arts and crafts, a lesson and snack time, all related to that evening's biblical story. For the fourth station, they rehearsed music and dance for a production they presented to family and friends the last night of the program.
The member congregations of Southside Ministries are University Parish of Holy Ghost Roman Catholic Church, St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Cathedral Church of the Nativity and St. John's Windish Evangelical Lutheran Church.
