VBS was always my favorite event of the year! Themes, crafts, outdoor games, engaging scripture lessons that got kids up and moving -- this was my kind of faith formation.
Which VBS is your parish using this year? With which other churches are you collaborating? What fun ideas have you used in the past? What do you plan this summer?
At St. Patrick, Youngstown, we invited ourlocal fire department to bring one of their pumper trucks and asked parents to send their children with swimsuits and towels. The firefighters climbed into the basket on the high ladder and sprayed water all over the parking lot as kids ran through. Teen helpers monitored the little ones to prevent falls, and even some catechists got in on the wet fun!
