Vacation Bible School

God's Love Is So Cool! - Vacation Bible School!
June 18-22, 9-Noon!

at Lutheran Church of All Saint's
5800 State Park Rd, in Fox Lake

Come with us as we experience how God's love for us is so cool! Our Vacation Bible School this year will once again be done in partnership with All Saint's Church in Fox Lake - this year at their great facility!

At VBS this year, kids will experience God’s Word in surprising and unforgettable ways! Each day, leaders reinforce one simple Bible truth — which makes it easy for kids to remember and apply to real life! It's an incredible Bible-learning experience where kids will see, hear, and encounter the truth about God's love for us! Team-building games, cool Bible songs, and active Bible adventures are just a few of the activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes, safe shoes, and maybe with a towel since we will play some fun water games!)

Your kids will also participate in an outreach project, called Operation Christmas Child, that will let the kids in our community shine God's light to hurting kids around the world.

Limited openings are available! Sign up now by downloading the registration form (Click Here!) and returning it by June 9, along with payment to:

Pollinator Pocket

Pollinator Pockets - Coming to Joyful Harvest!

Pollinator Pockets are very popular urban landscape features. They are small wildflower patches that fit well into the corner of yards or other places. Their name comes from their role in being made up of flowers that produce pollen which attracts butterflies, bees and birds such as hummingbirds.

Many times these flowers are simply commercially-produced popular flowers like black-eyed Susan, purple coneflowers, coreopsis, asters and phlox. But Pollinator Pockets can also be comprised exclusively of native, local plants. These are the plants that are most valuable in propagating and preserving the local butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. And that is an important point these days because those pollinators are an important part of ecology and often their very existence is threatened. There are more endangered and threatened native wild plants and animals in Lake County than in any other county in Illinois. Planting these ecological treasures and making seed and transplants available to others can help reverse the losses.

But there is another aspect of Pollinator Pockets that is even more precious than the ecological preservation - the opportunity to have a piece of God's divine natural creation to walk by or through on a regular basis; the opportunity to learn about and appreciate and be a part of and enrich this precious divine entity. And in the process enrich our own lives and the lives of our children and friends.

Joyful Harvest will be planting an indigenous Pollinator Pocket this spring! Want to help out? Sign up on the Welcome Table or call the church office!
