Vacation Bible School
Vickie Detmers

1930 was the year Trinity conducted the first Vacation Bible School in Nokomis, making them a pioneer in our community. In the early years four weeks of the children's summer was devoted to Bible School where a variety of subjects were taught.

The Vacation Bible School has continued through the years and is now a one week school for children age 3 through 6th grade. Our enrollment includes children from Trinity and St. Paul's as well as other children from Nokomis and the surrounding area.

Many laypeople have served as teachers, leaders, and helpers, while others have donated cookies, drinks, and kitchen help. We encourage anyone who is interested in helping in any capacity to contact either of the directors.

Jesus said, Let the little children come to me and do not forbid them, for such is the kindgdom of God.

The Fellowship Club meets once a month on a Sunday evening. Since the primary focus of the club is fellowship with other members, there are many fun activities planned.

The Club provides a fellowship setting where members of the congregation can come together to share common ideas, concerns, and joys as we rear, train, guide, and strengthen our ever growing families in the Lord. We strive to integrate members of our congregation into various service projects which financially support missions and missionaries, as well as community projects and special church projects.
