Our God can make the impossible possible!

A science lab conducts experiments that explain how things are possible. In Jesus' ministry, He did things that are impossible. His greatest miracle of all was dying on the cross and rising from the dead for our salvation. At God's Wonder Lab, discover that Jesus does the impossible for us.

Warm greetings to our families planning to join us for our VBS in 2021! We will be offering In-person and virtual options this year. If you are planning to attend online, please fill out the registration form for our online families on the church website: http://stpauls-lcms.org/vbs

Our week starts on SUNDAY, July 18th from 2 PM - 5 PM, and continuing Monday-Thursday of that week from 9 am - 12 pm! Please note that times on the first day differs from the rest of the week. 

The week will end with a short closing program starting at 12 PM on Thursday in the church sanctuary.

The situation with COVID-19 is ever changing but we will be following mitigations recommended by the Monroe County Health Department during the week of the event, including universal masking if needed.

All families who wish to attend in-person must pre-register using this form or by contacting our director at 618-719-9307.

That said, please feel free to bring friends and family to our event. We will have activities for students in PreK3 through 6th grade.

A note for our PreK families (entering PreK3, PreK4, or Kindergarten),

  • Children must be potty trained to attend. Please contact our director, Carleigh Ottwell, at carleigh.ottwell@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns about this.

  • There is a section on the application asking for your child's birthdate. Please provide this so we can group our younger and older preK students appropriately.

  • Pick up and Drop Off procedures will be communicated to families as the date approaches. Please check your email later this spring for these procedures.

  • Sometimes, our little ones (or parents) have a tough time being away from one another. Fear not! Our PreK program has time built in for students and parents to start their VBS day taking a few minutes to learn about the love of Jesus. More information about this will be communicated in our PickUp/Drop Off procedures.

Thank you again for your interest in VBS 2021 - God's Wonder Lab at St. Paul's. We hope your child learns and grows in Christ this week as they hear the word and are in fellowship with other children and adults of faith!

Any other questions or concerns, please email carleigh.ottwell@gmail.com or call the church office at (618)281-4600.
