This year’s VBS theme is Shipwrecked! Throughout the week we will be learning about how Jesus saves. We will celebrate and discover through crafts, games, bible study, nature, songs and worship and daily bible verses.

When is it? Mark your calendars for July 30th through August 3rd. VBS will officially begin at 9am on Monday, July 30th but doors will open at 8:30am for at the door registration. Also, we want to flexible for the busy families so optional early pick-up will begin at 12:30 but each day will come to a close at 1pm.

Who can register? Our curriculum is geared towards ages 5 through 11 (children entering Kindergarten thru 6th grade). However, if you are 12 or older and would like to be apart of our team you can register to volunteer on our website!
