Vacation Bible Schools

Here is the long awaited list of at least some of the VBS locations in Lincoln this summer.  Since I am a week late, a few churches had theirs already – sorry about that.   If the church is unfamiliar to you, please make sure that you are comfortable with the teaching that could be going on.  First Free MOPs is not endorsing any of these programs – we just wanted to let you know about them.  Also, if you do send your child(ren) to VBS, my challenge is to figure out how you can also be involved.  Our small church does not have VBS, so for the past few years, we have gone with our neighbors.  While I am really wanting a break from “teaching” during the summer, I have enjoyed helping out in the kitchen each year.  I am great at cleaning up tables! 🙂  If you have really little ones helping may not be feasible, but I bet at any location they would welcome your contribution of a bag of oreos, if they happen to serve snacks.  On to the list …
