St. Francis Episcopal Church and Willow Glen UMC invite every child between the ages of 3½ years through fifth grade to Vacation Bible School, June 24-28. It's a Quest for the Ten Commandments and you won't believe where it will take us! Throughout the week, we will have amazing Bible adventures as we discover the ten commandments and how God's rules can guide our lives and relationships. With a variety of games, crafts, songs, and a community of friends, each day will bring new experiences and help us live as God's people.
Come join the Quest for the Ten Commandments!
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
In the last full week of June, we team up with Willow Glen United Methodist Church down the street to co-host a camp-style Vacation Bible School. The fun includes worship, Bible stories, crafts, science, and play. Preschool-aged children through 5th graders (completed) are invited to participate. Each year we choose a theme to explore for the week such as Moses: Wilderness Escape, Building the Peacable Kingdom: A Person's a Person No Matter How Small, Rock The World, Amazing Love: Traveling with the Apostle Paul, etc. With 200 participants we can create hands-on learning experiences that can't be had in the church school classroom.
St. Francis teens and adults also participate as teaching assistants and activity leaders. This is a truly wonderful week where we celebrate God’s gift: our children. It’s especially fun to see our own St. Francis youth graduate from participant to volunteer and help with the young children. The volunteers who give their time to this event end up receiving just as much (if not more) as the young participants. This is a once-per-year event that you don’t want to miss. St. Francis members and their friends receive priority registration in March.
