Vacation Bible school (VBS)

 

St. Antonious church is happy to announce Its VBS Program.  Vacation bible school is a one or a two week summer camp for elementary school aged children.  You can sign up for one, or both weeks. Each week has its own bible theme with stories, snacks, and crafts.  We spend our time learning bible stories, hymns, and church traditions. This is done in a fun learning environment.  There are activities, games, arts & crafts and much more.  Our program runs Monday through Friday of each week from 9-3.  We offer extended Day care hours in the morning from 7-9 and in the afternoon from 3-6 p.m.  We will have a field trip on Thursday of each week, locations varies.   In the previous years we have visited the San Jose Children Museum and the Oakland zoo.   We also went bowling, to the Movies and the Sculpture Creek Nature center.  Each Friday we start our day with an instructional mass which goes through the rituals of the Coptic orthodox faith.

While our VBS program is mainly for the kindergarten through 5th grade kids, we rely on our middle school and high school youth to volunteer and help us run this program.  This also teaches the youth the importance of responsibility and service.   We encourage all the kids to put aside their electronics and come in unity to serve and learn about our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are so excited to spend our summers learning about Jesus and having a great time together.
