Welcome!

The video accessed through this link, below in brown, contains a welcome message from the pastors of our two churches, Trinity United Church of Christ and Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in East Petersburg, PA.
 

What’s An Online Choice Board?

(To go directly to the Online Choice Board, scroll down.)
 
The video accessed through this link, below, which was also released on Trinity’s Facebook page, provides an explanation of some of the ways one might use the online choice board.
 
 
Click on the links in the choice board blocks to access the various activity pages.
 
You can choose to do as many or as few of the activities on the choice board as you wish.  You can choose the activities of interest to you.  You can make it a game to complete four (or any number, your choice) activity blocks in a row. Or you can even do everything on the board!
 
If you would like a more organized, traditional VBS path, Ms. R. will make suggestions of some of the activities, organized in a daily path, in the daily Opening videos, in the top row of the choice board.  In general, largely, each column could be used one a day from left to right across the board.
 
One can download and print the pdf to be able to color in the blocks you do, or put bingo chips, or pennies on the spaces, your choice.  You are encouraged to be creative.
 
Each of the activities on the choice board may be done at any time, whenever you have the time.  The only time sensitive VBS activities are the Teen/Adult Video Call Class, and the Bible Story Bingo.

Hi Everyone,
Look carefully as you explore the VBS pages.  How many photos of me can you find?
I’ve also left some paw prints behind as I’ve explored the site.  How many of these can you find?  Some are big and easy to find, but others may be more hidden.
 

Bible Story Bingo

Friday, July 17, from 6:30 – 7:30 PM, in place of a traditional closing program, we will play Bible Story Bingo via Zoom.  Each of you should be receiving an email containing one Bible Story Bingo card per person, along with the information to get into the Zoom call.  If you have not received an email with the Bingo card and Zoom information by Tuesday, please first check your SPAM folder, and then email VBS@trinityeastpete.org to request one.
 
For anyone interested in where we bought the Complete Bible Story Bingo game that we used, a link is below to the site.
 

Share Your Creations

We would love to see your coloring pages and crafts!  If you wish to submit photos of your creations to share with us, please email them to VBS@trinityeastpete.org. We may share some of your submissions in the Photos Gallery.  The link below will take you to the Photos Gallery page.
 

Mission Projects

The choices continue.  So many organizations are in great need at this time, that we encourage anyone who is able, to support one of the three organizations listed below.  If you live far away and would instead like to support one of your local charities, please feel free to do that as well.
 
Donations may be made payable to Trinity UCC and mailed to the address below.  Please be sure to designate to which organization you would like the donation to go.  Donations may also be made online through Trinity’s Online Giving.  Or feel free to give a donation directly to the organization listed below as well.

General Information

Videos and music have been put on separate pages to try to reduce the load time for each page. Sorry that the trade-off is more clicks.

Teen/Adult Video Call Class

The Teen/Adult Video Call Class is meeting from 7:00 – 8:00 PM, Monday, July 13 – Thursday, July 16.  If you did not receive the information to be able to access the Call and would like to, please email VBS@trinityeastepete.org to request the information.  The class is using the book, “The Gift of Hard Things: Finding Grace in Unexpected Places” by Mark Yaconelli.
