Vacation Bible School kit

As most of you know, Augsburg Fortress no longer publishes Vacation
Bible School kits, but they offer other publications that can very
easily be used for that great week (usually) of learning during the
summer months. Such as: the Taking Root series, Rotation Sunday School
materials, and there are still resources available for Baobab Blast.
We have just received the kit from Cokesbury: Operation Overboard -
Dare to go deep with God. The kit contains the classroom leader guides,
the Director's guide, some of the crafts and other "sea life", as well
as other highlights of the program.
If you would like to review this offering from Cokesbury, call the
Resource Center at 715-833-1153 or email: staff@synodresourcecenter.org

"People of Faith: Christianity in America" is an excellent choice for
an adult forum or for educating your confirmation class or for a senior
high class. It's the story of how Christianity shaped life in the
United States. Well researched, balanced, fast-paced and insightful,
"People of Faith" features expert commentary from an array of scholars
representing Evangelical, Mainline Protestant and Catholic
prespectives. This amazing resource will help you discover the
importance of Christian history as we consider the future of the church
in America.
Check it out now for Sundays in Lent.
