Vacation Bible School

Roar! Vacation Bible School 2019

  • Life is Wild! God is Good!

July 29-August 1

ROAR Vacation Bible School (VBS) will take place at the Parish Hall the week of Monday, July 29th through Thursday, August 1st. We’ll start each evening at 5:30 with supper. VBS will then run from 6-8:15PM. If you’d like to register your child, forms are available in the narthex or west entrance to the church, or call the church office at 319-254-2216. If you have a teen that would like to help at VBS please contact Becky Rauenbuehler:


Food and/or donations are welcome! You can place your donation in the offering plate, marked VBS or find any of the VBS team! If you’d like to see what goes on at VBS each night, you’re invited to just come watch and/or join in. 


We are also hosting an Avon fundraiser July 1st - July 14th for VBS this year. Laura Craig has graciously offered to donate 100% of any profits to VBS this year. What a great way to try some new products while you’re helping us out at VBS! Thanks, Laura!  Visit this link or contact Becky Rauenbuehler to find out more or to place an order.  Here is the fundraiser link:

Please prayerfully consider this exciting opportunity for your children. We hope that all of our kids that are now completing grades K-5 (ages three through fifth grade; entering grades 1-6 next fall) will participate in this fun VBS week. Youth that are older than completing grade 6 are welcome as volunteers for VBS.

For children that are ages 3 through preschool (and fully potty trained), we will have a supplemental program entirely led by church volunteers. If your child is in this age group, please have an adult staying or ensure they are comfortable with our church volunteers.  

Please be sure to invite your friends! Contact the church office with any questions at 319-254-2216.

Grace and Peace,

Swedesburg Evangelical Lutheran Church Christian Education Committee
