Orthodox Vacation Bible School
The Orthodox Vacation Bible School
(OVBS) has been a longstanding educational outreach program of the Malankara
Orthodox Church. It provides our younger generation with an opportunity to learn
more about the basic tenets of the Orthodox faith through participation in a fun
and interactive program that takes place over a series of days.
OVBS focuses on deepening the knowledge and experience of the Orthodox faithful
and embraces the teachings and traditions of Orthodox Christianity: Scripture,
saints, feasts, prayers, worship and music. Also, the curriculum will attempt to
teach and engage participants in the following areas: classroom lessons &
discussions, memory verses (from Bible and/or parts of Orthodox tradition â€“
especially prayers), songs/hymns (liturgical & non-liturgical), Orthodox
worship/prayer, activities, arts & crafts, recreation, and more.
The theme for 2010 OVBS will be taken from St. John 11:28 - "The Teacher is here
and is calling for you."
