What is VBS?

Vacation Bible School is an annual five day Bible-based learning experience in late July for children four years old through fifth grade from 9:00 am until noon. Throughout the day children take part in crafts, music, Bible stories, games, and snack stations that help reinforce the Bible message. VBS is also an opportunity to make an impact in our community for Christ as children, families, and volunteers raise funds to go towards a designated mission project. Youth and adults get involved in VBS by volunteering their time and talents to ensure VBS is an impactful event for all who attend.

Join us for VBS 2017 as we walk through God's Doors of Grace and explore the many gifts He gives to us! We will jump into the time machine and go back 500 years to learn we are saved by Grace, through Faith, based on Scripture, because of Christ and His Love for us.
