Vacation Bible School (VBS)

VBS is a week-long faith formation program for Kindergarten through Grade 6 that is scheduled in the month of June or July. Bible stories, songs, games, snacks, and lots of fun and interactive learning. Each year there is a different theme and we need many volunteers to make decorations and help with the program.

Volunteer Information

All our religious education programs need adult and high school students to volunteer their time and talent to accompany our youth in their faith formation. There are opportunities to become certified as a catechist as well as ongoing enrichment in theology and spirituality.  You don’t need to make a weekly commitment, whatever time you can serve in this ministry is welcomed.
