Vacation Bible School 2018 (VBS)
Each June, VBS offers Bible-based learning that connects with a mission project through which children can share God's love with others. Each year VBS develops a different theme with activities designed for a variety of learning styles. Teachers and volunteers are needed to assist with VBS. We begin recruiting each year in April. Nursery is provided for children of VBS teachers and volunteers.
We are very excited to announce this year’s VBS - Rolling River Rampage June 11-14, 2018! During this fun-filled week of rafting-themed activities folks of all ages will experience the ride of a lifetime with God!
