Great Big Beautiful World is a four day Vacation Bible School (VBS) curriculum that embraces Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si and our call to care for our common home. It begins with the creation story in Genesis 2 and includes psalms, stories of Jesus, and the vision of a new heaven and new earth in Revelation.
This comprehensive look at the biblical story reveals God’s deep love for all of creation, including each child. Great Big Beautiful World invites children to see the ways God cares for the earth and challenges them to be part of caring for and preserving the created world.
Each day starts with relationship-building, joint worship, music, prayer, and a dramatic presentation of the Bible story. This is a time to SOW seeds of friendship, joy, generosity, and wisdom. These seeds will GROW as children explore, create, play, and learn about God’s story at three response stations. In closing worship, children will be challenged to GO out into the world to care for the beautiful world God made.
Our offering this week will go to Catholic Relief Services – Clean Water (https://gifts.crs.org/give-gift-water). This organization is helping to provide fresh, clean water to a community that needs it. There is no pressure or requirement to contribute!
Please bring the whole family for the “Creation Celebration” recognition at Mass on July 23rd at 10am!
