Vacation Bible School

VBS Week 1 – July 12th - 16th

VBS Week 2 – July 19th - 23rd

 

**REGISTER EARLY TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR SPOT!!**

 

Listen up! Dig deep! Jesus had a lot to say. And those who listened discovered a treasure in his words.

 

Digging for Treasure is a fun-filled, Bible-based learning experience focused on uncovering the stories Jesus told, also known as parables. Children will sing songs, play games, make crafts, eat snacks, and do other activities, all designed to help children discover amazing treasures in the parables.

 

Our VBS participants aged Kindergarten through Grade 6:

  • Begin at 9:00 am in the school cafetorium. The day will end at 11:30 am.
  • Experience cool crafts, fun games, upbeat music, hands-on activities and snacks
  • There will be a carline for drop off and pick up (unless your child is participating in Summer Care)
  • Each week will have spaces for 75 participants. Since we want the maximum number of youth to participate, please select only one week for your family members.
  • To keep everyone as safe and healthy as we can we will be asking everyone to wear a mask, keep 3 feet distant from each other and be patient as we clean the stations between rotations.

 

NEW THIS YEAR** - Middle School Service Week

During the second week of VBS (July 19th – 23rd), we will have a special opportunity for 30 rising 7th and 8th graders to serve with the heart and mind of Jesus. There will be daily service projects as well as Bible reflection and small group discussion. Middle schoolers registered for the service week will also be eligible to serve with the elementary student VBS if additional volunteers are needed. There will be a $5 fee for this experience to cover t-shirt costs. Click here to register for our Middle School Service Week.

For students not registered at Ascension Catholic School there is a $50 deposit per child attending which can be used towards the fee or will be refunded.

During VBS week, Summer Program employees bring youth over to the VBS activity in the morning and pick them up for Summer Care afterwards. Be sure to pack a lunch, drink and snacks for the afternoon! If you bring your child to VBS first, you can leave the lunch with our VBS volunteers and it will get over to the Summer Program. Click here to see a flyer with more information.
