Vacation Bible School

VBS WebBanner


General Information:

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a week-long program designed to foster the faith of children.  It is a fun-filled week of interactive and multimedia Bible Stories, music, movement, crafts, snacks, games, and drama - all interconnected by a theme of the day.  VBS is open to all children, ages 4 (by July 1) through rising 5th graders.  VBS begins 9:00 am and concludes at 12:00 noon each day of the week.

beeThe most important thing we can teach our kids is that God loves them.  As Catholics, we believe that we were created in God's image and likeness and that we were created by a loving God for the purpose of love (Catechism of the Catholic Church #355).

At Maker Fun Factory VBS, children don't just hear about God's love; they live it! They see it, touch it, sing it, taste it, and put it into action through prayers, discussion, God Sightings, Connecting Kids to Justice, and more.  As kids move from station to station, they move deeper into their understanding of and relationship with God.

May wonderful things happen at VBS when a child is immersed in discovering more about Christ.  A child will understand more about his or her own faith journey, more about Scripture and prayer and church teaching - and more about what it means to live a life of discipleship.
