Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School at St. Stephen Presbyterian Church is a high energy, ½ day or all day experience. We teach religious music and energizer songs to kick off the morning then send the kids on a journey through our recreation locations, cooking station, science lab, Bible story nook, Crafts creations, and Mission station before returning to return home OR stay on for movies, wet rec, popsicles and snow cones, and more music.
This year’s theme is Holy Roly Poly.
Our goal to teach children to develop a kinship with bugs and plants, and food and recycling to help out with the repair of our God created Earth. Kids will be introduced to nature around the St. Stephen campus, enjoy meeting bugs and habitats, adopt a tree, be conscience of the food we bring in and how NOT to waste it. We’ll also be aware of recycling by asking everyone to bring their own Water Bottles to use each of the 5 days.
God said that creation was “good”; let’s help God maintain that goodness!
The Youth of St. Stephen contribute highly into shepherding our aged based flocks of kids and they and key adults run the afternoon program. Come for the fun, the tee shirts, the tie dye, the wet rec in the afternoon, but always for the snow cones!

NOW, we need to we have a good representation of youth and sponsors on the trip. Can you commit? We need VBS workers and sponsors; we need construction workers who build decks, paint and cut brush. We all work collectively on seeking our funds. Goal $19,000. VBS All Day funds go to YMT; Youth Garage Sale funds and YMT Stock propel us to our goal.
