Bilingual VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL July 11-15 M-F,10 a.m.-12
This year we're back to the parables (Mustard Seed, Lost Coin, Lost Sheep, Leaven) and the ever popular Loaves & Fishes story about sharing our food;
with accompanying activities and a bit about how we celebrate the seasons of the church year;
and how we participate in the liturgy at church. (Sign of the Cross, reverence, Gospel procession, Prayers--including candles!-- and communion).
Our one-room school is very flexible and welcoming to younger siblings and parents if they want to come.
We learn songs in English and Spanish, with some Hebrew and Swahili as well.
We march, we plant, we dye eggs, we bake bread, we make sandwiches for StreetChurch, and we eat snacks together.
You don´t have to be a member of our church to participate. You can also volunteer to help with transportation or activities or snacks for the week or for just one or two days.
Escuela Bíblica de Vacaciones bilingüe, 11-15 Julio (L-V), 10 a.m.-12
Este año volveremos a las parábolas (Semilla de Mostaza, Moneda Perdida, Oveja Perdida, Levidura) y la historia popular de Panes y Peces cerce de compartir nuestra comida;
con actividades relacionadas y un poco cerca de cómo celebramos las estaciones del año eclesial;
y cómo participamos en la misa (Señal de la Cruz, reverencia, el Evangelio, Oraciones--incluso encendiar velas-- y comunión).
Nuestra escuelita de sólo un salon es muy cómodo y da la bienvenida a los hermanitos y a padres y madres si quieren asistir.
Aprendemos canciones en inglés y español, con poco de hebreo y swajili también.
Marchamos, sembramos, pintamos huevos, horneamos pan, preparamos sándwiches para IglesiAfuera, y comemos bocados juntos.
No necesitas ser miembro de nuestra parroquia para participar. Puedes ayudar con transporte o actividades o bocados por la semana o sólo un o dos días.

COS' NEXT GENERATION:
The best thing about C.O.S. are the people. They are kind and loving. They will welcome any new people. All the people love the children. The people at C.O.S. let children color and read. That is very kind. My favorite person is Mother Paula. She makes the children feel special. I also like how the people at C.O.C. let the children help with passing out names. They also let the older children help read things. Most years on Easter, the people of C.O.S. color and hide Easter Eggs for the children to have an Easter Egg hunt after church. The children even have their very own gospel lesson. C.O.S. would be very different without all the kind people. -- by Ronni (Veronica) U.
