Children & Youth Ministry: Vacation Bible School – Not Just for Summer.

We are developing a new plan for Vacation Bible School Events throughout the year. This plan will help build interest and support during the year and help the program to grow. Below is our schedule with a brief synopsis for each event. We will follow the Religious Education calendar thus beginning our activities in the fall. Please watch for the event flyers to come home from Religious Education. Events will also be displayed on the bulletin board by the Mary Chapel and the Ministry Display at the back of the church.
