This year will be our sixth Vacation Bible School that we hold in August the week before school starts.
In 2008, we had 75 children participate with about 15 helpers. We have had as many as 135 students with 22 adult volunteers and 41 youth/young adult volunteers.
We have always been able to offer this as a “free” program – we ask for donations in our July Poor Box to help cover the cost of our supplies and we fill the wall of the vestibule of church with items that are needed that parishioners can buy an item and donate to us to help defray the cost which is our way of including a lot more people in our program. Everyone is excited to see the pictures that line the windows at the end of the week.
The children have fun moving from station to station enjoying outdoor activities, science projects, Bible stories, crafts, music and snacks! All the activities are geared around the theme for the year and relate to a particular Bible story.
Please join us this year for Kingdom Rock!
