What about health and safety of the children? See the health and safety page for more information.

When is Vacation Bible School? Vacation Bible School (VBS) is Monday through Friday. It starts at 9:30am each day and ends at noon.

Who is it for? Any child going into kindergarten this coming Fall through age 12 may attend the Vacation Bible School. The child must be kindergarten. We may make exceptions for children who are almost that age, but a parent or guardian must attend with the child to help supervise. The reason for this is that we have challenges keeping up with the extra-wiggly children, given our staffing level and the type of material that is being taught.

What is the cost? There is no cost. We offer our Vacation Bible School as a free community service.

How do I register? To register click here and fill out the form. That's all it takes!

Is there an online option? This year we will not be offering a "live" version of VBS online. Instead, each day we will upload the main sessions to the church YouTube channel. We would be happy to send you a packet of materials for your child if they will not be participating in person but instead plan to watch this "delayed" version of VBS. Please send the church an email to confirm you want to participate in this online form of VBS. It is not necessary to fill out the online registration form if this is the case.

What is Vacation Bible School? Vacation Bible School is a week-long series of meetings when children can learn about Jesus through a re-telling of various portions of the Bible. Our goal, as you might expect, is to show the children the good news of how to become a Christian. This good news is called the "gospel." This will help our children discover how they too should obey God's desire for their lives.

What does a typical morning look like? A lot happens in the two hours of the VBS. After enrollment/registration, the first group session is held. There are songs, team competitions, and then the first Bible lesson.

Then there is a break for a couple of rotation classes (science and games), followed by the second group session with more songs, Bible drill, and then the second, shorter Bible lesson. The morning closes with presentation of prizes and reminders for the upcoming days of VBS and for children to memorize their Bible verses to get even more prizes.

How can parents be involved? The final day's closing program is special because parents are invited to join in and see what happens and what the children have learned during the week.

Parents are permitted to stay and watch on any of the days if they want. Or they may want to use the time to do some errands. This year, we are encouraging parents to drop their children off instead of coming into the building with them. Monday through Thursday pickup will be at the front door of the church instead of inside. This will help reduce close contact between families who may be concerned about COVID-19.

Who teaches the Bible lessons? Our VBS teachers this year have done lots of children's ministry in our church. Our church also supplies volunteers to help with crafts, games and logistics.
