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!

Our theme for VBS 2017 is “Hero Central”.  Our kids will participate in epic adventures alongside biblical heroes connecting the Bible with our lives today.  In the process we will get to know Jesus better as our Lord and Savior and Ultimate Hero!

Students in grades 1-8 are invited June 12 – 16 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.; students in preschool – kindergarten are invited August 21-23 from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. Full schedules and registration are below.
