Parables on Parade! Vacation Bible School
What do tax collectors, rich fools, seeds, yeast, salt, light, Holy Cross kids, the Adventures of Frog and Toad and wise builders all have in common? They will ALL be at this year’s Vacation Bible School, Sunday July 14 - Thursday July 18, 5:30 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. Campers, parents and youth gather at 5:30 p.m. for a simple meal, singing, prayer and an orientation to the evening. After dinner, teachers and helpers accompany their groups to Story Telling and Song, and Creation and Recreation. Expect juggling, singing, parables coming ALIVE, crafts that matter, dance, mission mindedness and faithful songs to keep in your back-pocket for a lifetime! We gather again to share the joys of the day, thank God and sing together, and close at 8:15 p.m.Our VBS leader, Rev. Bruce Stewart, is a much loved friend of Holy Cross. (VBS leader, sabbatical labyrinth guide, guest preacher, he’s been around!)
“Bruce has an amazing talent to write songs and create movements that are very catchy and that the kids will remember for years to come. (My kids can still sing the songs and do the movements!). He is able to engage the adult helpers in ways that are meaningful, which makes the whole program a learning experience and fun for all ages.”
Kate Hayes, HC parent, Youth Leader and former Director of Children and Youth Ministries at HC.
“Bruce Stewart is that perfect combination of spirituality and fun plus he plays the guitar and sings – he is the total package. He is able to draw parallels between a child’s everyday life and the stories of God’s people in scripture. He is not your father and grandfather’s priest.”
Pam Nicolson, HC parent and former chairperson of many VBS programs, including the ones Bruce led here!
