Monday--Friday, July 18-22
9 a.m. to 12 noon.
*longer on Friday until 1:30 p.m. for the closing and picnic

For children going into 2016/17 grades preK-5, with middle school and high school youth volunteers and adult volunteers!

This summer, children in grades preschool through 5th grade are invited to explore the world and discover God at work in the lives of real people in a different corner of the world each day of VBS week.

The children will enjoy:
hearing the bible adventures of Jesus Christ and
experience in song, games, snacks, crafts, and activities the Faith lived out in a different culture.

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, the children will cross cultures and encounter Christ in all nations, for "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life (John 3:16)."

The adventure begins in Vacation Bible School for children entering 2016/17 grades preschool through 5th grade on Monday through Friday, July 18--22 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Parents, please plan on joining your children on Friday, July 22 at 12 noon. We'll end with a closing program in church, followed by a grand picnic on the lawn of church until about 2 p.m. We’ll have plenty of surprises, give aways, and just good faith-filled fun all week long!

High School and Middle School Youth 2016 VBS Volunteer Sign Up Here!

Many hands are needed to help with Vacation Bible School and High School, Middle School, and Adult volunteers are very much appreciated. Volunteers are needed as Group leaders and Aides, and in Crafts, Recreation & Games, Kitchen (snacks), and Nursery (for children of VBS volunteers).

Especially needed are singers and musicians to join the VBS band that opens each day, enriches the children's morning with music sessions, and leads the praise and worship in the closing program on Friday of VBS week.

In this Jubilee Year Vacation Bible School, we are also looking for volunteers who come from other countries to give hands-on presentations (show and tell) of their cultures. If you can help, please contact Ellen Ward at ward@stfrancisa2.org or call 734-821-2130
