Vacation Bible Schools

Yes, that’s plural. Emmanuel is offering Vacation Bible School both for children and adults this summer.

For Children, our VBS program, Kingdom of the Son, will take place July 20-July 24, 2015, 9am-12:30pm. It will take place in the Rectory at 16 East Broadway.KoS

Registration is now open to the community, so to secure your child’s spot register now! We are limited to 30 children and last year we filled up and had to turn people away. We will not be able to take new registrations at the door on the morning of 20 July. You’ll find the Registration Form here:  VBS 2015 Form.

Volunteers are needed to work the VBS program. We welcome Middle School and High School students as volunteers. Please let Heather Fitzgerald or Heather Costantino know if you are able to help give the children a fabulous week!

Adult Vasamson-and-delilahcation Bible School will also be offered the week of July 20 – 24 and will feature Scenes from the Book of Judges. We will look at the themes of sin, repentance and restoration that give shape to the book’s stories, and the extraordinary attention paid to those on the fringes of society. Then we will examine with adult eyes some of the stories that we may have learned – in a much edited form – as children, such as the saga of Samson & Delilah pictured here. (Note: the adult class will not meet on Tuesday, 21 July, due to the previously scheduled service of Holy Communion at 10:00 AM and the Clergy Bible Study at Noon.)
