VACATION BIBLE CAMP 2016
Setting the scene. Cheri Beitz along with many great volunteers helped to create our spectacular environment. We were gifted with a beautiful sea scene from the previous DRE, Georgette Jebb for our stage. We thank Cub Scout Pack 4 for sharing and setting up the ship from their Blue and Gold Dinner. The entire gym was a sea of waves, dolphins, sea gulls and whales.
Fifty three children attended the camp. Daily groups gathered in their groups with leaders. We had Playful Pirates led by Emily Horab, Jessica Howard and Sarah Schuler. Julie Lenyo and Lauryn Saldana oversaw Patrick's Pals. Erin Brege and Erin Sliwinski guided the Merry Missionaries. The Brave Shepherds were led by Rachel Schuler and Emily Wilk.
We began each day reviewing what we learned the day before and the day's activities were introduced. We began our prayer service in song followed by a prayer for the day's theme. On Tuesday our Pastor, Father Paul Seil explained to us St. Patrick's breastplate
