Vacation Bible School

Rome: Paul and the Underground Church

 

About

St. George Vacation Bible School (VBS) will be held from Monday, June 12, 2017 through Friday, June 16, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 12 PM each day.  VBS is available to children from those entering Kindergarten through 6th grade.  The success of VBS depends on the generous time commitment of our adult and teen volunteers. 

Description

Families step back in time at Rome, exploring the life of the apostle Paul and the underground church. Kids and adults participate in a memorable Bible-times marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig in to Roman eats, visit Paul while he’s under house arrest, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Each day concludes at Extollo—a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Kids and adults at Rome will join nearly a million participants in Operation Kid-to-Kid—a project to help provide clean water to people in Peru. With this service opportunity, families’ donations will change the lives of other families across the globe by helping provide them with safe drinking water.

Daily Schedule

Each day, kids and adults will gather for a brief time of worship at Celebration before joining their Roman Families for small-group interaction.  During Family Time, Roman Families will get ready to step back in time by looking at their "travel itinerary" (their daily schedule) and preparing to share God's love throughout Rome.

Then Families are off to visit Joseph while he's in prison (or when he's moved into the palace), or laugh and play at the Roman Playground.  Every Family will have plenty of time to explore the Marketplace, where they might create an Roman board game, craft a jeweled Collar, design an authentic-looking necklace, and much more. 

The day in Rome wraps up with Family Time, where kids and adults connect their experiences "in Rome" to their modern-day lives at home.  Finally, everyone will gather for a brief time of singing and announcements at Celebration.  This unique, hands-on approach to Bible learning is one that kids and adults won't soon forget!
