We are gearing up for this summer’s Vacation Bible School. Plan now to join us from 9:00 a.m. until noon on June 10-June 14. This Catholic based summer camp, Life is Wild — God is Good!, is intended to be a fun, dynamic experience for children and families of all ages!
Music… Service… Games… Arts… Science…Community… Faith… Friendship… JESUS!
This is what children will experience at St. Paul’s week-long summer camp, Vacation Bible School!
One of the many great things about Vacation Bible School (VBS) is how creatively and seamlessly it combines all the above elements into a week-long, half day summer camp that teaches our children about their faith. We use good, old fashion fun to teach students about God, the saints and the Bible. Broken into five stations each morning, the youth rotate through each station to complete themed activities that reinforce the day’s Bible message.
In Wild Bible Adventures, the Bible comes to life with period costumes, scripted actors, props and special effects! The children don’t just hear a Bible story, they experience one! They may be transported to Pharaoh’s palace, onto Noah’s Ark or even to the foot of the cross. What better way for children to truly connect with scripture than by experiencing it?
Another great aspect of VBS is that the entire family can participate! The main body is made up of students from age 3 through 6th grade, broken into programming specifically for their age group. Students in 7th grade and older make up the bulk of our crew leaders and VBS is often their first taste of leadership and evangelization. Adults of all generations volunteer their time and talents to share their faith with our parish’s young people. Even our tiniest parishioners (infants and toddlers) are welcome to participate with their parents.
Families come back year after year to celebrate the joy of our Catholic Faith. Past participants have often shared that the friendships made during VBS last a lifetime. And the music! We often hear children singing the VBS songs months after camp has ended! VBS is a one-of-a-kind experience. We hope to see your family this summer!
PLAN NOW TO JOIN US ON JUNE 10-14, FROM 9:00 A.M. UNTIL NOON!
