Dear St. John's Parents, Grandparents, and Friends
We are so excited about the upcoming Vacation Bible School at St. John’s! The program will run Tuesday-Thursday, August 4th–6th, from 5-8 p.m. Each evening will include play time, supper, a lesson, craft time, and worship. Please REGISTER HERE so that we can plan enough food, materials, and staff. There is no cost for this year's Vacation Bible School!
- FUN: Each evening will include some time to just hang out and play. We have a great group of children and youth at St. John’s and they enjoy being together. Let’s give them the time and space to do that.
- THE BIBLE: The stories during Bible School will be from Jesus’ life. It is called Holy Moly! Each lesson includes a brief, funny video and reading, discussion time, and a craft. After supper each evening, the kids will be divided by age for the lesson time. We are confident that your children and youth are going to love this program.
- WORSHIP: Our children and youth are very comfortable in church. They are at ease in all parts of the building and seem to be very much at home. We are so happy about this, and, as parents, we should feel good about fostering this comfort in our children and youth. However, worship in the Episcopal Church is not always easily accessible. So, we are going to teach our children and youth how we worship. Michael Bennett, our music director, will teach some of our worship music. We are also working on a worship booklet to make worship more accessible for young readers. During Bible School, we will walk through the worship service with the children and youth each evening, inviting them into our regular worship. We invite you (the parents, grandparents, and friends) to join us for worship Monday-Thursday at 7:30pm and on Friday at 7pm.
We are really looking forward to this Vacation Bible School. Please feel free to invite friends by forwarding this information. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
