Wright-Patterson Air Force to Provide Fun Faith-based Activities For Youth
As summertime quickly approaches, many students are looking forward to going on vacation or attending summer camp.
The Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Chapel of Ohio is hoping students will also think about their religious studies as they decided what to do for the summer break.
“We want them to be excited about their faith,” said Cheri Champagne, the Catholic administrative assistant. “We want that fire lit to have them want to go out and do what these missionaries are doing.”
The Chapel is providing a two-week, innovative Vacation Bible School that includes activities for youth grades 1-12. These events are sure to be fun, interactive and faith-based.
The first week of their VBS will have Roar!, which is a non-denominational program for children four-years-old through the fifth grade.
Roar! seeks “to inspire courageous Christian faith through music, Bible memory, science activities, sports, and videos.”
The Chapel is looking to host its events from July 8-12.
The theme for Rora! “is centered on African adventures and experiencing the Bible with all five senses. Children will learn Bible stories about the Israelites in Egypt, God’s goodness and Jesus’ death and resurrection.’’
During the second week of the VBS, Totus Tuus will host programs for students in the first through twelfth grade. It will include activities like drama, educational classes, and mass preparation. This is set to occur July 15-19.
The program geared towards teenagers covers more mature topics such as spiritual growth and building relationships with peers.
