The Marketplace of Galilee
2017 St. Andrew’s Cathedral Vacation Bible School
July 14th - 16th

Sunday, 16th, 10:00a – Closing Service

Journey with us to the Land of Israel as we travel back in time to Galilee. We will transform the church into a marketplace in Galilee, full of tents for our children to explore what life was like there, where Jesus performed many miracles, including walking on water in the Sea of Galilee!

Our children will experience the first century Galilean culture through going to the synagogue; being part of a family tribe and experiencing many activities including weaving, baking bread, mosaics and more. We will walk in Jesus’ footsteps beside the Sea of Galilee, remembering the miracles he brought about here and the calling of his first disciples– plan to join us in The Marketplace of Galilee.

Weekend Format:
We will begin Friday July 14th from 5:30-7:30 when we will share dinner, have a short activity and explore the marketplace. Saturday we will be in Galilee from 9-3 and then end our weekend at the 10:00 service Sunday with a celebration following in the Parish Hall.

Hope to see you there!
