Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a day camp for children, which takes place at the beginning of June for students in elementary and middle school and the end of August for early childhood students. Children learn songs, play games, have snack, go to lesson and make crafts. VBS is free and open to church members, school families, neighbors and friends; please feel welcome to invite others to join you!

The 2016 theme is Kingdom Games. Christ calls us into His kingdom in baptism and the endurance race to heaven begins. But we are never alone, Christ is with us every step of the way, in every trouble and in every joy. Students in grades 1-8 are invited June 13 – 17 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.; students in preschool – kindergarten are invited August 22-24 from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. Full schedules and registration are below.
