USAG Bavaria Religious Support Office NEWS RELEASE


GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria Religious Support Office invites children to this summer’s Shipwrecked Vacation Bible School.

The week-long summer program for children ages three to 12 will be hosted at the chapels in Netzaberg, Rose Barracks, Garmisch and Hohenfels.

At Shipwrecked, kids will discover that in the troubles of life, God rescues them. Kids sing catchy songs, play games, devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible memory buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out science-fun gizmos they can take home and play with all summer long.

Kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Sail Away Sendoff that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.

“Kids at Shipwrecked VBS this summer will also join a mission effort to provide seeds for families in Haiti to grow food,” said Katherine McMath-Dorman, director of Religious Education.
