This Year’s Theme … “Galactic Starveyors”
Kids ages 4 years old to those entering 6th grade are invited to spend a few days with us every summer during the month of July. Our VBS weeks include a great lesson, bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to our kids. We also enjoy wonderful music, crafts, snacks, and games. This July our kids will become Galactic Starveyors! They’ll discover the God of the universe and encounter amazing and wonderful things designed by a Creator who is even bigger than the vastness of His Creation. So, mark your calendar now – VBS week takes place during the week of July 23rd. We’ll kick off the week with a Family Fun Night on the 23rd from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. VBS Week begins on the 24th, from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. You can register by downloading this registration form pdf VBS 2017 Registration Form – just complete it and drop it in the mail, or you can bring it with you on the 23rd.

Our 2016 VBS Week, entitled ‘Submerged’, took our kids on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. As our kids submerged themselves in God’s Word, they discovered that Jesus saw people differently. He doesn’t just see what’s on the outside; He sees who people are deep down.
