Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School dates are July 29 - August 2, 2019.  Registrations will begin mid-June.

This is our very successful summer program for grades pre-K (age 4) through grade 5. It is held in late July/early August and is a themed bible study program of activities including music, theater, story telling, drama, and games. VBS (Vacation Bible School) runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 and is divided into 25 minute segments, each with a different emphasis. The children rotate through the various groups and the mood is lively and upbeat. There's always time for fun and snacks, which are included in the fee. Generally there is a main theme for the program such as "Power Lab" or “Geared for God” , which were two recent themes. The program is designed to incorporate the teachings of the Bible into our everyday lives. We had a wonderful session when we learned that when we are “Shipwrecked, Jesus Rescues!"

The theme for Vacation Bible School was “Shipwrecked." Camp was held July 31 - August 4 and once again, we had a full house. We welcomed over 100 campers and had just as many junior helpers (teen volunteers) and more than 20 adult leaders! it was such a fun week. One of the best parts of the week was when we learned about 5 different organizations that help our community, including Bread for Life and Family Promise, and were able to participate and help these organizations during the week, too.


We can't wait for next VBS, which is being held July 29 - August 2, 2019.  Our theme for this year is, “Roar:  God is Wild About You!”  Please contact the RE office for registrations to be a camper, a junior helper or an adult leader.
