The churches of Norwalk are busy preparing for the many festivities that summer programs have to offer.
St. John’s Catholic Church is gearing up for its fifth annual summer Bible school, which will feature the program Kingdom Rock; Where Kids Stand Strong for God, is a curriculum that is available for Catholic churches throughout the nation to follow.
“The program includes a multitude of games, arts and crafts, music, Bible stories and study that are all tied in with Kingdom Rock,” explains Judy Corcoran, who has spent the past couple months coordinating the program for her first time. “Our church, St. John’s, does a summer Bible school each year, and this is the program that we chose for the upcoming summer.”
The series will be held from Sunday, July 28 – Aug. 1 each evening from 6 – 8 p.m. On the fourth and last day of the program, the kids will perform a program of songs and Bible stories that they have learned throughout the week.
Kingdom Rock is open to all children throughout the community from preschool through fourth grade. Kids in fifth grade and beyond are invited to volunteer to help the younger children through the program.
“It’s a great leadership experience for the older kids in fithth grade and up,” comments Corcoran. “They will lead the younger kids through their activities and throughout the stations during the day. We have about 20 older kids that have already signed up to volunteer, many of them whom took the classes last year. I’ve talked to a few who couldn’t wait to get to fifth grade so they were able to take over those leadership roles and gain experience.”
