Register now for “Backstage with the Bible” Drive-In Vacation Bible School hosted by Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Hudson every Wednesday in July at 7 p.m.

The traditional VBS format has been reimagined in light of Covid-19 safety precautions. This year’s event will be held outdoors in the church parking lot, with cars spaced so that there is an empty spot on either side. Songs and a Bible story will be shared on a covered stage by a costumed Bible character.

Participants can stay in their cars or sit on their own chairs next to their car. Each night’s program lasts about 30 minutes.

At the conclusion of the evening, families will be given supplies to take home with them to use on their own time – an art project; games; activity sheets and a snack that goes along with the night’s theme.

Participants will receive a t-shirt and CD on the first night as well.

Advance online registration is required at by June 27. The cost is $10. For more information, call Bob Brantsch, Director of Christian Education, at 330-650-6550. Gloria Dei is located at 2113 Ravenna St.
