What is VBS?

Kids Connecting Faith and Life!

Vacation Bible School allows God’s love to come to life like never before…touching lives, awakening hearts, and drawing kids and adults closer to Christ.  Here, at Saint William Parish, we are proud to use the Totally Catholic Vacation Bible School curriculum from Our Sunday Visitor.

Connect – God is everywhere!  When kids and adults are surrounded by God’s Word, the reality of God’s love gains new meaning and relevance to their everyday lives.  They’ll have an amazing time trying out new games, songs, awesome science experiments, meeting Saints from our Catholic Tradition, and more during this firsthand adventure into God’s endless love.

  • God Sightings teach kids to look for the daily awe-inspiring evidence that God is doing great things all around us.
  • VBS Crews are like families allowing kids to travel to stations in a group where kids naturally learn with and from one another. 
  • Daily Bible Points are reinforced during every activity-ensuring kids will remember each one! Kids will know that Jesus loves you!
  • New and classic songs are always a hit with the kids. Kids will sing, dance and learn about Jesus!

Change – Not all kids learn the same way, so VBS offers seven stations to meet the needs of every learner.

  • Awakening hearts - that's what VBS is designed to do! VBS is designed to prepare each child's heart for a closer relationship with God and one another.

Action - Kids put into action what they learn at VBS!

  • Operation Kid-to-Kid™ and Catholic Relief Services help the children participating in VBS give to children in need around the world, in a meaningful, tangible way.
  • Bible Memory Buddies® are not only a big hit, but provide a unique way for kids to share God's Word with family and friends after VBS. The Bible Memory Buddies also serve as a reminder of the Bible Points learned!
