VBS - Vacation Bible School

St. Andrew’s Church, Ottawa - 2019 Vacation Bible School: ROAR!

Join us this summer for


August 12th - 16th, 2019 - 8:30am to 4:30pm

A VBS summer camp for preschool and elementary kids (age 4 and up).

At Roar VBS, kids discover that even though life gets wild, God is good. Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings®. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!

Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project, through a program called Operation Kid-to-Kid™, that will provide nutrition and good health opportunities to moms and babies in Zambia, Africa.

Cost for the week is $50 per child. Extra hours childcare is $5/session.  Registration fees can be dropped off at the church or mailed in to the church office. (Please be sure to clearly mark your child's name on the payment.) Hours for extra childcare is from 7:30am-5:30pm.
