ST. AGNES VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL MAKER FUN FACTORY
Kids discover they’re lovingly crafted by God and built for a purpose. On this interactive adventure, curious kids become hands-on inventors and experience God—the ultimate Maker– in new and wildly creative ways! VBS will be held here July 10-14 in the Parish Hall from 9-11:30 a.m. The cost for the week is $20 and includes a t-shirt, snacks for your child each day and a gift. Participant and volunteer registration forms are located in the back of the church or can be found on the church website. We are looking for kids preschool to 4th grade who want to go on this adventure with us for the week! And we can’t have the fun without many volunteers! If you are going in to 6th grade or older, we can use your help!
Want to help with St. Agnes's VBS but don't think you have the time? There are lots of small ways you can help that don't require a big time commitment or for you to be there during VBS itself. We are looking for people willing to help make decorations that can be made in the weeks leading up to camp, create a science activity, or bring a snack for a day. If there is one day you'd like to help during VBS but can't commit to the whole week...No problem! All help is welcome and we know how hard it is to work these things into your busy schedule. This does count towards student/family volunteer hours for next school year. Contact Kathy at the parish office, 793-1330, if you are interested. We hope to see you there!
