  1. Faith Lutheran VBS - 5:30 pm
    • What do a bunch of paper bags and Faith Lutheran Church have in common? A Shipwrecked Vacation Bible School of course! Donna Peckham, and Ken Koeppen, volunteer members at FLC, are busy making scenery for the 2018 VBS that is set on a deserted island filled with rocks (paper bags)! Some days all of us feel a little deserted and lonely and we want to share the good news that ‘When You’re Lonely…Jesus Rescues!” Loneliness is a real part of life for kids, that’s why it’s so encouraging for kids to know that Jesus rescues. We’ll explore that Jesus doesn’t always rescue us by taking us away from a hard or lonely time. But, like a life preserver holds you above the water, he’s always there to hold us and love us.

      At Shipwrecked, kids discover that Jesus rescues them! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God's Handiwork. Each day concludes with the Sail Away Sendoff that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time.

      A Shipwrecked VBS starts Sunday, July 15 and runs until Thursday, July 19, from 5:30 to 8:30 each evening. All 3 year olds through 5th grade are invited to pre-register at FaithBranson.org, or call 417-334-2469. There are limited Pre-K spots available, so give us a call early. Faith Lutheran Church is located at 221 Malone St. in Branson, right off the ‘round about by Cox Hospital.

The Adoption Center is not licensed to accept stray/surrender animals but receives animals through their partnership with facilities such as Taney County Animal Control. In addition to operating the Adoption Center, the Humane Society operates two Thrift Shops in Branson to provide funds for their operating expenses. The full service Veterinary Clinic next door to the Adoption Center opened in June 2018 to work with the community and local rescues to enable more pets to have access to quality, compassionate care at an affordable price. There are many ways to support the Shepherd of the Hills Humane Society – adopt, donate, volunteer.
