For over 30 years, our church has been offering a community Vacation Bible School for children throughout the area of all faiths (or none). They come from the hills of Stephentown down to Valatie to be with us for this fabulous week of learning, love and laughter. This is the first time we are offering a full day VBS hoping that it will help parents as they plan their summer days for the children.

Vacation Bible School will run from
Monday, July 30 – Friday, August 3 from 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM. On Friday we have the Big Camp Social when we share with our families the songs and lessons we have learned. We’re adding a skit to this year’s VBS! Of course, there are always ice cream sundaes!

The theme COME AND SEE will feature Old and New Testament lessons, crafts, music, playacting, games and science. There will be quiet time in the afternoon with lie down/video for little ones and quiet crafts/games/reading for older kids. There will be water fun and outdoor games (weather permitting).

We’ll be learning about the great island of Madagascar and how Christians there celebrate and worship. Our new pastor, Jeniffer Tillman, spent a year there in Young Adult Global Ministry.  There will also be a service project (to be determined) that will help the children see how faith makes a difference in the world as we help others.

Children will provide their own lunch. We will provide mid-morning and afternoon nutritious snacks. There’s always cold water to refresh us! We ask that children bring labeled re-usable water bottles.

VBS is offered at no charge through the J. Paul Trust for children and senior ministries. Our Parish Nurse is on hand for boo boos and any emergencies. The children are formed into age groups and shepherded through the day by teenage counselors and junior high counselors-intraining. Each activity area is staffed by one or two adults.

For more information or to register, call Marilyn at 518-326-5276 or email
