Each summer, St Ambrose Parish Vacation Bible School provides a fun and nurturing environment for our children to learn and share Jesus’ life and message. The children and leaders enjoy crafts, games, and songs that reinforce stories from the Bible. This year’s Barnyard Roundup! shared the messages of Psalm 23: The Lord is our Shepherd. This theme allowed us to hear and see God’s message through a Petting Zoo and Country Fair to open VBS and a closing “Hoedown” to include parents and visitors on the last night.
Through the planning and support of parishioners, grandparents, parents, and friends of St. Ambrose, VBS hosts 80-100 children. Middle and High School students return as guides and are a testament to a growth in faith that is fostered in our church community.
This year’s schedule is intended to encourage even bigger attendance and welcome volunteers who weren’t able to commit to a full week of assistance. Meetings continue, and dates and times are announced through FastDirect and the church bulletin. Please join us.
For information on the program, call Barbara Buhs at 314-517-1683. Look for registration forms via FastDirect and at entrances to church in the Spring of 2017. A $10 fee per participant helps to offset the cost of materials. Please direct any donations to the church office.
