Join us for an at-home/virtual VBS experience with All Saints’ Episcopal Church from July 27-31 where your kids and you can explore what it means to have compassion for others, ourselves and the world. This program by Illustrated Ministry is geared toward pre-school age children through fifth grade, but there will be some lesson plans you can go over with your teenagers so the whole family can be involved!
There will be music, games, crafts, yoga, and compassion in action activities!
All Saints’ Episcopal will provide take home packets for each child/family. This will include supplies that may be needed for crafts. Packet pickup will be July 26 at All Saints’ Episcopal Church from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. If you’re unable to pickup at that time, then we can deliver them to your home within Johnson, Pope, Yell or Conway counties.
Videos will be made live Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. on our social media pages. There the kids can go over the lesson for the day at any time. Then we will gather via Zoom and Facebook live at 2 p.m. each day to discuss what we’ve learned or show off our craft item.
All families are welcome.
Shirts will be provided to the kids. There is no cost to attend at home/virtual VBS but if you’d like to help defer the costs of the shirts, which were $10 each printed locally, you can make a donation here, selecting the fund “Support Children and Youth” and add the memo VBS shirts. Or you can mail your gift to our office at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 501 S Phoenix Ave, Russellville, Ar 72801.
Shirt orders must be received by July 15 at 3 p.m. Deadline to apply for VBS camp is July 22nd by 3 p.m.
