Vacation Bible School 2019

Monday, July 29 - Thursday, August 1  
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A free summer kids’ event called Roar VBS (Vacation Bible School) will be hosted at Holy Cross Lutheran Church from Monday, July 29 - Thursday, August 1. At Roar, kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life. Dinner is included each night!

Open to those age 4 through 5th grade. Volunteer opportunities for youth and adults are available to help with preparations ahead of time including decorating and supply building, and during the week as well.

Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, and test out Sciency-Fun experiments.

Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 7:15 p.m.

SPARK Sunday School Workshops

Sunday Mornings, 9:30 a.m. 

Families attend worship together at our 9:30 a.m. service.  Following the opening song all children—from preschool to fifth grade, members and visitors—will be invited to attend the morning’s Spark Workshop.  Students will learn about God in a way that best fits them while parents are able to engage in the morning’s message.  Students will be brought back into worship at 10:05 a.m. before communion, and finish worship with their families. 

It's All About the Bible

Bible discovery and exploration is integrated in every program, every lesson, and every age group. Each story is told for 4 weeks in 4 different ways to increase retention and spark deeper curiosity.

Activities Kids Love

Lively, age-appropriate workshops—such as games, crafts, and science experiments—accommodate all the ways kids learn.  Modeled after VBS, leaders and students engage on a journey through faith.

Fostering Inter-Generational Relationships

Through a wide range of volunteers and intentional programming, we create a space for our community to connect and grow together in God’s Love

Flexible Volunteer Opportunities

Individuals, pairs, or families can volunteer to lead one workshop or ten!  Each session is self-contained and completely planned out!  To sign-up contact Gibson Stanton, gibson@HolyCrossLC.org or (651)739-0643.


The R.O.C.K.

Wednesdays, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm.
Dinner Available at 5:30 pm for $3.

Fun and fellowship for students in Kindergarten—5th grade.  We start our night in worship by singing vbs songs, camp anthems, and praying together!  We will be invited occasionally to share this music at worship on Sunday mornings.

The second half of the night, students will learn new group games and even play some classics.  This is a time for them to spend in fellowship with their peers.  Volunteers to help supervise are needed for this portion. Games and supplies will be ready.
