Vacation Bible School

Update: The VBS participant and volunteer rosters are now FULL!

Thank you to all parents and volunteers who are eager to see children know what it means to follow Jesus, the Light of the World, this summer.

Even though we're full, we still need your help!

Set up and Break down

June 18 @ 7 pm and June 19 @ 9 am, we will begin setting up all the incredible decorations that help VBS come alive. If you enjoy creative/artistic endeavors or just want to come out and support VBS in some way, we could use many hands that weekend. After VBS, we will take down the decorations on June 24 at 12:30 pm and June 25 at 8 pm. Please help us then as well!


VBS Donation Wall

We plan on serving approximately 210 kids for five days! We could use your help with providing materials for so many children. Find the VBS Donation Wall at the north wing on the upper level, by the adult Sabbath School classrooms, and submit your donation to the church office before June 20.

What is VBS? Open to ages 3 & 4 and students entering Kindergarten - 5th grade, VBS will explore what it means to follow Jesus through energetic songs, fun games and science experiments, and delicious snacks.

Volunteers: Are you older than 5th grade? Students in 6th grade and above and adults of any age can volunteer!

VBS Aftercare is a daycare program from 12pm - 5pm after each day of VBS. The cost is only $2 per hour ($10 per day*)! Enjoy our special offer of $40 if you register your child for the whole week!* Open to children ages 5 to 11 only. You can still register your child if s/he is registered for VBS. See our VBS Aftercare table in the foyer during VBS week.
