What’s Included

Put on your boots and hats for a Ranching Round Up with Cowboy Joe and his namesake in this  St. Joseph VBS!

Cowboy Joe teaches the children of your parish about his favorite Saint in this St. Joseph Vacation Bible School and how he works hard to live the virtues like him. Join Joe and his cowboy buddies around the ranch to learn about Courage, Obedience, Prudence, Justice, and Faith.

Each day begins with Praise and Worship and a lesson from Cowboy Joe (or Cowgirl Jo*), followed by splitting up into small groups (grouped by age or multi-age groups, or families, whichever works best for your parish!) to head out onto the range for stories, games, crafts, snacks, skits, and more!

*Cowboy Joe or Cowgirl Jo are integral parts of the initial setup lesson for the day, and is played by a member of the VBS team.
