VBS: A long tradition of ministry and outreach to the children of Winchester

Vacation Bible School 2017: Passport to Peru - Discovering God's Good Gifts
July 10-14, 2017

Vacation Bible School is the product of two parishes working together, as it has been for a number of years. Christ Church is always happy to partner with our neighbor, Grace Lutheran, to offer this ministry and outreach to the children of Winchester and the surrounding area.

Each summer, more than 250 children attend the weeklong Vacation Bible School, which is held on Grace Lutheran’s campus. These children range in age from two to current 6th graders. More than half of the children attending are not affiliated with either Christ Church or Grace Lutheran. For some of these children, VBS is their first exposure to the Gospel’s message.

For this ministry to be a success, many hands from both parishes are needed. There are many ways to help, before VBS begins and during the week. Beforehand, we need help to cut things out, build props, sort supplies, and more. During VBS, we need volunteers to help with registration in the mornings, help fix snacks, lead outdoor games, or just be on hand to help wherever needed.

Teachers and assistant teachers from Christ Church are always needed. All materials and instruction guides are provided. Parents, grandparents, and anyone who enjoys children are welcome as teachers! Youth finishing 7th grade this spring and older are welcome as assistants. While VBS runs from 9:00 am until Noon, teachers do not have their class for three hours straight; the children rotate through music, game time, and snack with other adults in charge.
