Christ the King offers a Vacation Bible School (VBS) for children entering the first through fifth grades. This week-long summer school is an opportunity for children to experience God in a personal way. The Vacation Bible School will also focus on teaching scriptures that will help the children to grow in virtue knowing that to be more virtuous is to be more like Him who we love. There will also be short daily teachings on Life in the Spirit so that our children can more fully enter into life in a charismatic parish.
To help their children get the most out of this opportunity, parents are strongly encouraged to read the chosen scriptures and lives of the saints ahead of time. The four scriptures that will be the center of our teaching are:
- Matthew 6:22
- Proverbs 1:4
- Mark 4:9
- Hebrews 13:7
The saints are:
- St. Gregory the Great
- St. Dominic Savio and St. John Bosco
- St. Jacinta Marto and St. Francisco Marto
- St. Francis Xavier Cabrini
Vacation Bible School is from 8:30 am to 12:15 pm on Monday and 9 am to 12:15 pm on Tuesday through Friday during the week of June 25, 2018 The registration fee is $30 per child with a maximum of $90 per family.
If you or your age 12-17 teenager would like to volunteer, please contact the VBS secretary, Lauren Sauter at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need both adults and teens (teens over 18 should register as adults). Children of adult volunteers will be able to attend at a 50% discounted rate and a high-quality Pre-K, Kindergarten and Nursery are available for children of volunteers that are too young to attend VBS. There will also be a 6th grade program for children of volunteers.
The registration deadline is June 1st, 2018. Priority registration will be given to parishioners until May 1st, 2018, after which date registration will be open to non-parishioners.
Please note that the registration form contains a volunteer application for teen volunteers. If you have teen volunteers to register, please make sure they are with you to complete their application before you begin the registration.
For parents of children with food allergies: If your children or teen volunteers have food allergies, we would like you to send a safe snack for them. With the high number of different kinds of food allergies, it is definitely safest for you to prepare their snack! If your child has food allergies, there will be a table set aside for them to store their clearly labeled snack during the day. They can drop it off there in the morning and then pick it up when their group has snack.
