Youth Episcopal Pilgrimage to Washington

St. Paul’s youth in ninth through twelfth grades and 2019 confirmands are invited to join Director of Youth Ministries Nick VanHorn on an Episcopal Pilgrimage to Washington, DC, Sunday, July 21 through Friday, July 26.

The group will view historic places through the lens of the Episcopal tradition, studying social justice at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where the Rev. King spoke and discussing supersessionism after visiting the Holocaust museum. The group will also visit the Museum of the Bible, the National Cathedral and other “surprise” locations.

The cost is $425. Registration and a $100 deposit are required to reserve a spot. Scholarships are available. Deposits are non-refundable unless all spots are filled.

Space is very limited and will be filled as registrations and deposits are received. A waiting list will be kept once all spaces have been filled.

For more information and to register for the trip, contact Nick at nvanhorn@stpauls-ws.org.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School will be offered Monday, July 29 through Friday, August 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. This year’s theme is, “To Mars and Beyond.” Registration is open to all children from three years old through rising sixth-graders.

The To Mars and Beyond space travel adventure will encourage voyagers to explore where God’s power can take them.  Along the way, children will discover new possibilities as they reach for the stars and encounter the limitless power and love of God!

All are welcome to attend the closing program at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, August 2, in Colhoun A.

Adult and teen-aged volunteer Star Guides and Station Leaders are needed to help make the journey successful. Star Guides lead the voyagers from adventure to adventure. Each voyager group will need at least one adult guide and one teen guide to keep the voyagers safe and on mission. Each Station consists of at least one adult and one teen to put the voyagers through their training.  The stations include Bible Story, Drama, Crafts, Science, Recreation, Snacks, Mission and Power Launchers. Adults are also needed to help voyagers find their space crews at the beginning of each day.

To volunteer, contact the Rev. Lauren Villemuer-Drenth, Director of Children’s Ministries, at lvillemuer-drenth@stpauls-ws.org.

To register a child, download the registration form and mail it to Lauren, along with your check, payable to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, for $15 per child. Scholarships are available.
