Saint Andrew Invites Children to Kingdom Rock: Where Kids Stand Strong for God

Vacation Bible School at Saint Andrew will be from June 16th to June 19th, 2014. At Kingdom Rock, kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, and experience epic Bible adventures. Each day concludes with Fanfare Finale—a celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. The program also features a group service project to teach children about serving others.

Kingdom Rock is a drop-off program for kids entering kindergarten up those entering fourth grade and runs from 5pm to 7:30pm each day and includes dinner. The program takes place in the Saint Andrew School Transitions/Extended Day room.

The cost is $30.00 per child or $50.00 per family. Space is limited to 40 children and registration is on a first come first served basis.
