Welcome and God's blessings!
For the first time ever, Christ the King is offering a Vacation Bible School experience for children who are entering preschool through Grade 5 this fall! VBS takes place this week ~ July 26th through 30th ~ and our theme is "Superhero Saints."
Activity stations will include "Create with the Saints" (arts and crafts), "Devotion in Motion" (outdoor games), "Saint Sightings" (videos and journaling), and "Holy Heroes" (service projects). Please keep all our volunteers and participants in your prayers!
For our last day of VBS, our "Saint of the Day" is St. Kateri Tekakwitha. Check out this video to learn more about our first Native American saint!

Faith Formation curated playlist
