Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is a form of religious education that focuses on children.  It is usually a three days in duration and teaches the Bible to children in a fun, safe, and wholesome environment.  It includes music, crafts, Scripture, Bible stories and much more.  It is designed to bring the Word of God to the children in a way that they will not only enjoy but remember for years to come.  There are many volunteers needed for Vacation Bible School and people can help out in a number of ways. There are always items needed to make the program successful so we invite parishioners to donate items.There are many volunteer positions available for the actual program. Parishioners can volunteer to lead children through the program helping them understand the lessons. They can also help with crafts or games. Volunteers are needed behind the scenes as well for food preparation, paperwork, registering children or other fun activities to enhance the program.  Contact Melissa Heichel at 614-989-2724 or [email protected] to volunteer.
