VBS

Welcome to Virtual Vacation Bible School!
Camp has been a beloved part of our summers together for many years. Although we are unable to gather in our traditional format, we hope this provides you with a few of the loved elements that have been a fun part of VBS.

How to use the virtual program
VBS is broken into 5 days. You can set the participation pace however you like! You might choose to do it Monday through Friday as we have done traditionally, or perhaps you’ll choose Saturday through Wednesday, or maybe even one day a week for 5 weeks! Or maybe you’ll do it all in one day! Choose the pace that is right for you.

The Camper materials are comprised of 2 videos per day and corresponding activities from a camper bag. Camper bags have been assembled at Christ Church for you to pick up in a contact-less manner. The bag contains a music CD, crafts, student booklet, crayons and glue, and yes….even DAILY SNACKS! Send an email to scoffman@ccparish.org to reserve your camper bag by providing the name and grade of your child. The date and time for pick up will be sent via email.

Our primary story for the week of VBS is the old testament story of Jonah and the Whale. The student booklet explores a different element of the story each day. Here is how we suggest you organize the video viewing and material use:

Extra videos!
You will notice there are 5 additional videos available! They are Yunas and the Whale, The Little Fish That Got Away,  When God Made The World, Swimmy, and The Boy And the Ocean. These are great stories read by Reverend Alison Schultz. They have great messages and can be used as a springboard to have some beautiful conversations with your child. You can view one each day, one each week, or at whatever interval you would like.
