By Derek Gean | Community Editor | Fort Leonard Wood Guicon | 03 July 2008
There is bound to be a lot of experiments going on over the next few weeks as the Installation Chaplain’s Office gears up for Vacation Bible School.
This year’s VBS, themed “Power Lab – Discovering Jesus’ Miraculous Power,” is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., July 14 through 18, in Bldg. 6501.
According to Carol Hudler, director of religious education, post children will have the opportunity to participate in the science-themed program and while doing so, learn about faith and how to apply Biblical principles to their lives.
“(This program) is part of the Installation Chaplain’s Office’s sponsorship, because it promotes religious education and spiritual formation,” Hudler said.
“It is not only a great opportunity to learn, but also a fun and exciting way to spend a week of summer break,” she said.
“The theme embraces the wonder of science, and the children will be involved in interactive lessons about the scientific ideas that relate to God.”
Each year, dozens of volunteers take part in the post’s VBS, and according to Hudler, help boost the program to a level of excellence.
“VBS is probably the pique of all the activities for religious education,” Hudler said.
“It is a time that we look forward to in religious education, and I would like for our community to know how much I appreciate the dedication of those who make it happen,” she said. “Because of this dedication, the children will remember the experience for years.”
This year’s program is open to children who have just finished any grade between grades Kindergarten through 6th.
Registration is underway and Hudler encourages parents to register their children as soon as possible. For more information, to enroll, or volunteer, call Hudler at 596.0089, e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org or register directly online at https://www.groupvbs.com/webtoybox/myvbs/flw.
