2014 will be the seventh year for St. Simon to host a Vacation Bible School in August the week before school starts – August 11th thru 15th.
In 2008, we started with 75 participants with around 15 helpers. Since that time 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 by asking for donations in our July Poor Box to help cover the cost of our supplies and we fill the wall in the vestibule of church with items that are needed so parishioners can buy an item to donate to us which helps defray the cost and includes the parishioners in our program. Everyone is excited to see the pictures that line the windows of the cry room 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 Workshop of Wonders!
