Every year, the first week in August, Saint James hosts Vacation Bible School. Saint James VBS presents Bible lessons with: skits, videos, puppet shows, fun games, songs, crafts, lots of lively singing, music & fun-filled ways to learn Bible passages! VBS is open to children age 3 – entering 8th grade. (If child is not toilet-trained, we request parents remain on-site during VBS.)
THERE IS NO CHARGE for our Vacation Bible School. Saint James offers our VBS to the community the way God offers salvation to our world—freely. Each year we rely on generous financial support & over 60 dedicated volunteers to make our VBS possible. If parents wish to help contribute to the cost of materials, t-shirts, buttons, arts and crafts and refreshments, they are certainly welcome to do so, but it is not required. It is our custom to gather a “mission offering” on Thursday of VBS, that serves the needs of children. A letter will be sent home on Wednesday explaining this year’s mission project, we invite families to participate in it. No pressure will be put on the children to participate.
Also, all children & families are invited to attend a special worship service at 9 am on the Sunday after VBS week where families can hear the children sing some of the songs that they have learned during VBS!
Our prayer is that Vacation Bible School will help children realize God’s great love for them. God reveals this unconditional love through Jesus Christ, our Savior!
