Vacation Bible School


This is our very successful summer program for grades pre-K (age 4) through grade 5. It is held in early August and is a themed bible study program of activities including music, theater, story telling, drama, and games. VBS (Vacation Bible School) runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 and is divided into 25 minute segments, each with a different emphasis. The children rotate through the various groups and the mood is lively and upbeat. There's always time for fun and snacks, which are included in the fee. Generally there is a main theme for the program such as "Power Lab" or "Avalanche Ranch” , which were two recent themes. The program is designed to incorporate the teachings of the Bible into our everyday lives. We had a wonderful session in August 2016, when we learned that God is Our Light in the Darkness.

The theme for Vacation Bible School in August 2016 was "Caves: God is Our Light in the Darkness." Camp was held August 1-5 and once again, we had a full house. We welcomed over 100 campers and had just as many junior helpers (teen volunteers) and more than 20 adult leaders! it was such a fun week. One of the best parts of the week was when we helped kids that we might never even meet when we held a Back-to-School supply drive to help Literacy Volunteers. LV supports families whose adults might have never finished or even attended school themselves so they might need help learning how to help their kids find success in school. We can't wait for next year!

We began planning for VBS 2017 in the spring. This year’s theme is “Get Geared for God” and we will be using our creative and constructive sides to remember that we belong to God.   Camp will be held July 31- August 4, 2017. Please consider joining us for a fun-filled week. Signups will start on Sunday, June 18, after the 8:30 mass in the middle school room (basement) of the Geraghty Center.  Registration continues until all 100 spots have been filled.
