Vacation Bible School

Your children are invited to vacation Bible school! This year we will explore the call to love our neighbors! Through a fun-filled time of learning and experiences, children will discover that neighbors are more than the people who live next door. This interactive VBS series will lead children deeply into five Bible stories focused on God’s care and compassion for neighbors close at hand and around the world. Who Is My Neighbor? will take children on a journey as they discover more about God’s great love and what it means to be a neighbor and to live out our faith.

Your child will make new friends, sing fun songs, watch dramatic presentations of the Bible stories, play active games, do art projects, and dig into the Bible. Join us as we discover neighbors near and far!
