Vacation Church School

Vacation Church School - 08/09/21

This year, Dormition hosted their first annual Vacation Church School (VCS): Growing in Christ. The kids met from 5:30-8:00 P.M. for one week in which they shared a lenten dinner, rotated between a lesson, crafts, and music, and finished the night with evening prayers. Each day's lesson centered around Growing with God. The kids heard and learned about a Parable from the Bible: Parable of the Sower, the Wheat and the Tares, and the Fig Tree. On Thursday, the kids discussed the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and how they can connect what they learned to living a good Christian life. On Friday, the kids sang the Paraklesis service in preparation for our Patronal Feast of Dormition.
