Vacation Bible School (VBS) is the high point of the summer for St. Paul’s kids and volunteers—also for kids from surrounding neighborhoods and churches. We schedule VBS for the first week in August—a blanket mailing with online registration boosts our attendance. The congregation lovingly funds VBS, so there is no fee for anyone!
Using a variety of themes, we have transformed our building into the Grand Canyon, the grasslands of Africa, the Australian Outback, the rainforest, jungle, and a variety of other settings. We learn Bible stories, sing catchy songs, have science experiences, play outdoor games, sometimes even have visits from live animals. We enjoy skits and crafts, and mostly, we learn how much Jesus loves kids—and so do we! VBS is a fun and exciting week for all.
Our VBS staff and volunteers, which all undergo annual background checks; includes moms, dads, high school students, grandpas, and grandmas. All have a passion for VBS with many planning their vacations around VBS.
