The mission of Vacation Bible School (VBS) is to carry God’s word to children through age-appropriate work, play, song, and dance; to give the children of the parish and surrounding neighborhoods an experience of community and faith; and to witness the faith growing in our youngest members. Vacation Bible School is presented annually during the last, full-week of July, on parish grounds. At MSW, we utilize a Catholic-specific version of the materials.
Vacation Bible School came to Mary, Seat of Wisdom in 2003 through the efforts of the parish Christian Family Movement (CFM) group and the support of many volunteers who return every year. Over 125 children attend every year, and nearly 100 volunteers help in some way. Teens through seniors all lend a hand in this fun and valuable ministry.
Goals and Objectives
VBS helps our children discover Jesus through crafts, themed-snacks, Bible adventures, games, music and new friends. Each day, a "Bible Point" is presented using a "Bible Buddy" character and a "key verse" from the Bible.
• Volunteer positions for VBS 2017 include: station leaders (including games leaders, crafts leaders, treats leaders, Preschool room leaders), decorators, and LOTS of crew leaders and assistants.
