Jesus Saves the World

Lift off for an intergalactic adventure and learn about God’s plan of salvation from creation to the cross! Just as the earth revolves around the sun, our faith revolves around God’s Word. Keep Jesus and His Gospel at the center of your children’s VBS experience with Miraculous Mission.

Trinity Lutheran Church VBS Miraculous Mission 2019

VBS 2019 Miraculous Mission where your children look into the Bible, God's Holy Word, and discover God's miraculous mission to save you, me, and the whole world! The Bible accounts of God's mission for us share how God made the universe; His promise of a Savior to Abram; the birth of Jesus, our Savior; Jesus' death and resurrection; and Jesus' ascension.

Approximately 170-200 children, youth volunteers, and adults work and play together during this amazing week of Bible stories, crafts, games, music, and snack.

VBS Dates:

With school out so late this year, we have a very different schedule for VBS. We begin on Thursday and Friday, June 27 and June 28, and continue on Monday through Wednesday, July 1st-3rd, 2019.  9am-Noon

Is VBS Free?

Yes!  Over the week, we do collect a free will offering for a mission project.  Last year, our mission project raised approximately $8,802 for the Feed My Starving Children Mobile FoodPack in Ithaca.  We also collected donations of clothing for the Rescue Mission.

When Does Registration End?

In order for us to have supplies, class lists, and name badges for every child, please register today.  However; we welcome walk-ins anyday and do not have an enrollment limit at this time.  Any pre-registrations greatly help!

Can Students Older Than 6th Grade Attend?

YES! Those graduating from 7th grade (&up) are welcome to join us as Youth Helpers.  Please register any Youth Helpers under the age of 18 on the "Student Registration" link. A mandatory orientation/training session for Youth Helpers will be held on Saturday, June 22nd.

Do You Need Adult Volunteers?  How Can I Help?

YES! And Thank you! Thank you! Your help is a wonderful gift to all the children & adults who attend.  Even a single day is appreciated.  We couldn't do it without all the generous donations of time.  Nursery care is provided for Volunteers having children ages 3 and below. Adults are also asked to attend the orientation/training session on Saturday, June 22nd.

How do I Register to be an Adult Volunteer?

You may register by clicking on the "Become a Volunteer" link.  Or if you prefer you may still send an email to Mary Milbrath ( with the days you are available and the place where you would enjoy helping out.  I should have your contact information if you registered a student.  Otherwise include the best way to contact you. I try to put volunteers in the area they most prefer but this is not always possible as some locations have limits.

An application must be completed for anyone aged 18 and older who will be on the premises volunteering with the children. The VBS director will have one for you shortly after you register or contact her about your willingness to serve.
