Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School | Wayside Chapel

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a Children's Ministry outreach of St. Mary by the Lake which provides opportunities to foster a relationship with Jesus. Children learn about faith through fun, age-appropriate activities. Life lessons help every child learn how to be a good person and a friend to others.

Vacation Bible School is hosted at St. Mary by the Lake Parish in Caledonia in a fully air-conditioned facility.

St. Mary by the Lake VBS 2018

At Scuba, kids explore what it means to have a friendship with God! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and create crafts that get imagination bubbling. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Fin-tastic Finale that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. 

Scuba is for kids from K4 to grade 5 and will run from 9:00 am to noon each day. For more information, call 262-639-3616.

Cost is $15 per student. You may submit a check, made payable to St. Mary by the Lake the first day of VBS or mail to the parish office.
