We hope you LOVE your box and know that we are going to make use of every item this week as we are on this Virtual Journey together (even the tissue paper!) for Arts Camp VBS.
Join us on Zoom from 6:00-6:30pm for an opening session and Water Blessing (found on page 6 of your packet). Before the Zoom session, take a walk around your home and yard to find symbols of life and baptism. Fill a bowl with water and use the floating candle found in your box.
We will also be preparing a piece of paper for painting. This activity needs to be prepared the day before painting. You will need: white paper, white glue, table salt. Use the white glue to draw a symbol of water or baptism on your paper and then sprinkle with salt. We will let this dry overnight! For video instructions - click here!
Now that the glue is dry on your art project, you can use your water color paints on your dried glue and salt outline. For video instructions- click here!
Instead of a Zoom meeting today, your activity is one we hope you will do as a family. On pages 37-38 of your packet, you will find options for an indoor or outdoor prayer walk. Use these pages to guide you and share your experience with us via email or social media. We would love to hear and see images from your prayer walk.
We are excited to offer a week of Virtual VBS this year. Join our volunteer leaders for a week of faith formation and fun, July 27-31.
This summer, families are invited to explore our Baptismal Covenant through Water of Baptism, Water of Life by Anne Kitch. Written materials from the book and all supplies will be provided to each camper the week before Virtual VBS. The activities of Arts Camp in a Box might be playful, but the meaning in them is profound.
The Baptismal Covenant is at the heart of our faith; it is the statement of what we mean when we say we follow Jesus.
Water is a rich and powerful symbol: it is the source of life and necessary for life. All the water that ever will be already exists; it has been here since the beginning of time. All water is holy water.
Registration is open to St. Paul's members and their families at this time.
