Vacation Bible School

SHIPWRECKED: Rescued by God

Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.

During Shipwrecked: Rescued by God, our church will be transformed into the scene of a giant shipwreck! Join us in the summer of 2018, as we are reminded that God's plan from the beginning, was always to rescue us. Whether you feel lost, are weighed down by worry, are struggling, have done wrong, or feel powerless, God has the ability and the desire to rescue you!

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 6th grade? Students in 7th grade and above and adults of any age can volunteer! There are 30 jr. high volunteer slots and 50 high school and adult volunteer slots available this year. Sign up quickly if you want to be a part of the VBS ministry team.
