Vacation Bible School is offered each year during the first full week in June. This fun time together with a special theme is staffed by parent volunteers and youth of the parish as counselors. It is open to children who are rising K-5th graders.


Rome_LogoROME: Paul and the Underground Church, June 5-9
This summer, your kids will be surrounded with the sights, sounds, and smells of first-century Rome. Your children won’t just hear about Bible events – they’ll experience them! They’ll mingle through a crowded Roman marketplace, learn with the Apostle Paul, tiptoe past Roman guards to a hidden cave where they’ll pray with first-century Christians who eagerly await news from their imprisoned friend – the Apostle Paul. There will be Roman crafts, foods from the culture, games and dramas to act out the Bible stories. And as always, there will be a component of service to others: As we learn about the aqueducts and clean water, we will be collecting change to send the gift of life-giving water to kids in some of Peru’s most remote areas. Rome – where kids explore God’s love, live God’s love and feel God’s love!
