Help Promote the 2018 LOM Curriculum

The LOM Curriculum Committee would like to ask for your help in spreading the news to the congregations in your area about the 2018 LOM Curriculum, “This Changes Everything.”   Please take a moment out of your day and share the following information to some congregations who support your ministry. LOM has a VBS bundle that we believe could be very useful to many congregations, but we need your help to get the word out!  All you have to copy the following and share it!  You can even cut and paste the text below.

***Here is wording for you to send to congregations***

As a supporter of our camp, you know about our ministry, but you may not know that we are a part of a larger organization called Lutheran Outdoor Ministries, or LOM.  LOM is an organization that exists to empower and equip outdoor ministry organizations, and one of the ways that they do that is by producing an outdoor curriculum each year.

Now, the same easy to use and theologically strong curriculum is available for congregations to use for Vacation Bible School.  LOM’s 2018 theme, This Changes Everything, will help campers learn how God’s grace changes these things and how we can work with others to show that grace to the world.  This curriculum has the same title as the theme for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering.  It has been written in collaboration with the gathering team.  The lessons are not the same but compliment those that will be used for the gathering.

LOM’s VBS package includes all you need to run your own Vacation Bible School program: 5 full days of Bible Study designed for lower and upper elementary students, crafts, games and the This Changes Everything graphics.  Priced at only $100, your congregation gets the tools that you need to help the children in your community engage with the Bible and their faith.  This theme, as well as others, are available on the Lutheran Outdoor Ministries website at
