Vacation Bible School is June 12 to 16, 2022
THEME We are excited to announce our theme: Jerusalem Marketplace! Step back in time to where Jesus walked to the Cross! Smell the fresh, warm bread; weave a basket of reeds; make clay pots… Can you hear the music echoing through the Marketplace? Engage all senses as you are transported to a different time and a fresh experience—and walk with Jesus!
BARNYARD The goat was such a hit that we would love to have live animals in our “Barnyard” each night of VBS! If you have a donkey, sheep, honeybees, or chicks (or know someone who does), please contact Pastor Tom or Kay Sykes.
SHOPKEEPERS The suggested Marketplace shops this year include Carpentry, Pottery, Weaving, Herbs & Spices, Musical Instruments, Jewelry-Making, Basket-making, and Bakery. If any of those relate to one of your hobbies, consider joining us for one or two evenings as a Shopkeeper. A lesson plan will be provided!
DAILY DRAMA The Bible comes to life at Jerusalem Marketplace. Roles this year include Rachel & Eleazar (1 evening), James (2 evenings), John (1 evening), Roman Guard (1 to 5 evenings), Mary Magdalene (2 evenings), Hannah (1 evening) and Peter (1 evening). Scripts and costumes will be provided. Line memorization is not necessary.
BOUNDLESS DAY CAMP! Calvary is excited to partner with Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio to offer an affordable day camp experience in Chillicothe this summer.
