We’re heading on a BIG APPLE ADVENTURE!!

(NOTE:  JULY 3 UPDATE – Registration is FULL.  If you want to put your child(ren) on the waiting list,

please email Rev. Paula at stmarkspres@eastlink.ca  )

 

Join us for our Vacation Bible School “Big Apple Adventure” as we learn where faith and life connect!

The Adventure begins Monday, July 22 and runs until Friday, July 26 from 9:00 am. til Noon each day.

The program is for “tourists” ages 5 to 12 and there is also a Teen class.

Please note:  we regret that we are not able to accommodate children with special needs – whether physical or emotional.

The program includes a daily Bible lesson, games, music, crafts, and snacks (snacks are provided – food allergies must be noted on the registration form.)

Registration is $5  * (see below)

If you wish to register your child(ren), please call Rev. Paula at 902-892-5255 or email her at stmarkspres@eastlink.ca

**Because registration is limited to 60 children and we are full every year, we now require the registration fee be paid prior to July 1 to ensure your child’s space is reserved.  This is to avoid other families being told there are no spaces available only to have “no shows” the week of VBS.

Living God’s Unshakeable Truth

VBS Crew croppedPictured are some of the 75 children and youth and 22 volunteers who gathered at St. Mark’s July 25-29 for Outrigger Island VBS: Living God’s Unshakeable Truth.  Based on Psalm 86:11, the program took us on a journey to “Outrigger Island” in Hawaii.  Each day, we explored God’s truth at Beach Hut Bible Studies, learned faith-based songs at Music Falls, made awesome crafts at the Crafts Cabana, played energetic games at Recreation Reef, and ate tasty and nutritious treats at the Snack Shack for a week of faith and fun!

Water Project Kenya SchoolAs part of our program, we raised funds for The Water Project.  By Sunday, we had raised over $500 by taking the Water Challenge.  Last year, funds we raised helped drill a borehole well for a school in Kenya!
