V.B.S. (Summer Catechesis Program)
June 19th - June 23rd, 2017
8:30 am to 12:00 noon
At Maker Fun Factory VBS, kids discover not only that God made them the way they are, but for a purpose too. Maker Fun Factory is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings.
Each day at VBS participants aged PreK 3 through Grade 6,
- Begin at 8:30 am in the school cafetorium. (PreK 3 & PreK4 youth meet in their rooms on the first day only.)
- Experience cool experiments, fun games, upbeat music, hands-on activities and snacks

MIDDLE SCHOOL EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM
If you are entering grades 6, 7, 8, or 9 this coming fall 2017 and are signing up for Ascension's VBS program "Maker's Fun Factory" scheduled for June19-23 you are welcome to join our Middle School Ministry’s Extended Day Program. As written by Middle School Minister, Mary Blucker:
“Each day after VBS ends (about 12:15 PM) we gather for our own time together for fellowship, service, learning and fun. We finish up about 3:00 PM.
Usually on Friday after VBS clean-up and put-away is done we take time to have fun as a group to celebrate our week of service.
What we do:
- When VBS is done and the children in our care have been picked up and we have signed out from the VBS table, then sign in at the MSM table in the back of the Cafetorium
- Help Betsy and the VBS team get ready for the next day- sweep, straighten chairs, take out trash
- Eat lunch together. Bring a bag lunch Mon, Tues, and Thursday. Wednesday Mary makes tacos/taco salad and Friday Betsy provides pizza.
- Circle time- talk about our morning of service and help each other problem-solve and strategize how to make the next day even better.
- Time to relax, study the VBS Bible story of the day at the middle school level, do an activity, game or craft, listen to a guest speaker from our parish or local community who comes to share their faith with us”
