The most exciting four mornings of the summer! Children age 4 through grade 6, as well as adult and youth volunteers, have fun with wood working, science, games, crafts, cooking, singing, dance, skits and puppets, while learning and acting to help others.

The Hollis Congregational Church Vacation Bible School (VBS) is held each summer in July with an over-arching theme, such as “The Fruits of the Spirit” theme for 2018 and 2019.  Each of the four days has its’ own “sub-theme”, such as Joy, Kindness, Love and Patience. These daily themes are carried out in activities at four stations the kids rotate through each day: STEM, Arts & Crafts, Service, and Outdoor games.  Highlights include learning about caterpillars and butterflies, playing parachute games and water games, and the many arts & crafts the kids get to make and take home.

For the adults involved, one of the most rewarding aspects of Vacation Bible School is seeing last year’s campers become this year’s helpers and leaders.  Several activities are led entirely by the local teen volunteers, including singing, dance, games, skits and puppets. Special thanks to all of the adult and teen volunteers!  We look forward to seeing the children and volunteers every summer at VBS!
