Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a week-long summer program for children in grades Preschool 4s-6th grade (grades are determined by child’s grade in the coming year). Throughout the VBS week children learn five Scripture stories, make crafts, learn new songs, participate in group assemblies, and share fun snacks. A large group of adult and teen volunteers act as teachers, craft guides, snack helpers, welcoming committee, and song leaders.
All volunteers are VIRTUS trained (in compliance with the Diocese of Cleveland’s guidelines for child safety). The VBS program selected is written for Catholic Churches and approved by the United States Council of Catholic Bishops.
VBS is open to all children (not just St. Brendan Parishioners).
In 2012 all VBS child participants and volunteers will travel to the “SonRise National Park” to learn about true peace, true riches, true power, true love, and true hope. Throughout the week students will discover and learn the Scripture stories of Jesus calming the sea, feeding 5000 people, the temptation of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, and the escape of Paul and Silas.
As we explore the SonRise National Park we will learn some exciting songs about each of the Scripture stories, makes some exciting crafts using many items found in nature, and have a really great week!
