These photos and videos will be used by Lutheran Church of Hope to promote VBS via mainstream marketing channels such as: church bulletins, printed newsletters, special publications, website and social media. If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, please direct them to Chris Gunnare, Executive Minister - Operations, at chris.gunnare@hopewdm.org or 222-1520.

Join us for an action-packed week at VBS! It’s a time both kids and volunteers won’t want to miss. Through large group worship, music, skits, crafts, outdoor activities and lessons, we will explore five awesome stories from the Bible for children to learn and experience in memorable ways.
