God is Good! Vacation Bible School

Catholic Teacher Daydreams presents God is Good! Vacation Bible School, just in time for next summer.

God is Good! is an invitation for children to celebrate and learn about what we believe as Catholics, while enjoying vacation fun.  Although our Catholic faith is a beautiful gift, and it is our duty as parents and faith formation leaders to teach about those Catholic gifts, there are times to play as we learn.  Just as Genesis teaches the children that God rested on the seventh day, or Matthew instructs the weary and burdened to come to God, we too are reminded that children are to relax, let go and trust God.

The basic elements of our faith are the Bible, the Mass, the sacraments, Church traditions and teachings, and the lives of the saints.  We are blessed by these truths as members of the Holy Church’s family.  Adults learn about their faith in the adult Catechism and children learn with Catholic curricula, including the timeless Baltimore Catechism. 

The first section of The Catholic Catechism is The Apostle’s Creed: What Catholics believe.  The following is a basic outline of the children’s week, and it follows The Apostle's Creed from a child's perspective.

Day 1: God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth
Day 2: Jesus Christ, His only son, our Lord and His Mother, Mary.
Day 3: Holy Spirit and Holy Catholic Church 
Day 4: The forgiveness of sins,
Day 5:  Resurrection of the Body & Life and Community 

Everything you need to lead God is Good! is a phone call away: 952-290-0483.  The program will offer your parish, or home school co-op, preparation instructions, assembly lessons, references to learning stations and snacks, video, music  and more. 

May God Bless your God is Good! celebration,
