VBS for adults

Reformation Lutheran Church, Culpepper, Va., did the usual, offering vacation Bible school to some 50 children. But a few weeks later the congregation offered its first VBS for mature adults. Twenty-five participants gathered three evenings over a meal to study the Bible, make crafts and sing. Bradley J. Hales, pastor, called it a smashing success. By 2040, 25 percent of the population will be 65 or older, he told the local Star Exponent, adding: “We need to embrace the aging that’s coming.”
