VTS 2021 Immersed in HIS JOY

What is JOY?  Where does it come from?  How can we get more of it in our lives?  How can we hold on to it?  Especially in these times of chaos, confusion, and trouble?  What makes JOY different from happiness?  

There is no doubt in the mind of a believer that these questions are as relevant today as they have ever been.  This years Vacation Torah School seeks to equip yeladim with the tools to understand, and access the JOY promised to all people who would put their faith in the one true G-D, the creator of JOY, and the one who designed us, no matter the circumstances we face, for HIS Joy!  Each day we will gather the children into "schools", with a faith filled leader and a fish-tastic youth assistant, to dive deep into the question of Joy.  We will learn what the Creator of Joy has to say about it by reading the word.  We will experience it in games with the "Hammerheads and Sawfish", in fellowship, and in worship at the "Shoreline Sunrise".  We will discuss the topics "Deep in the Grotto", while we do "Porpoise-ful Crafts", and even talk about it over our "Fresh Catch in the Aquarium".  All week long we will explore the idea of JOY and what it means to believers in the WORD of G-D, and followers of The Way of Yeshua.  We will investigate our own thoughts, and ideas, and we will learn in many different ways how we can walk always in the Joy of our L-rd!

Registration for this years "JOY" VTS Begins May 12th and runs through July 2nd
