Continuing the work of Jesus.  Peacefully.  Simply.  Together.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School will be held in July again this year.  Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for this year’s adventure July 15-19 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

This year we are going "In the Wild" to have amazing encounters with Jesus. Start up the all-terrain vehicle, we are headed on a wild adventure!  With our cameras in hand, we'll encounter elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles. As we gather snapshots of exotic animals, we'll also examine snapshots of Jesus in the Bible. We will experience opportunities to respond to the gospel through every encounter, filling our week with moments to go from bewildered to believing!

Day 1: Encounter in the Temple (Luke 2: 41-52)

Day 2: Encounter at the River (Matthew 3: 1-17)

Day 3: Encounter on the Water (Matthew 14: 22-23)

Day 4: Encounter at the Tomb (John 20: 1-18)

Day 5: Encounter on the Road (Luke 24: 13-35)


 All children ages three through Grade 5 are invited to enjoy Bible stories, music, crafts, and fun!

 For the closing program on Friday evening, July 19, the children will sing some of the VBS songs they have learned. Parents are encouraged to stay with their children Friday evening, as classes will be dismissed from the sanctuary to load onto hay wagons for the traditional closing hayride.  Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the hayride. After the hayride, everyone will meet back at the parish hall to view the wonderful crafts children have worked on and enjoy an ice cream social.
