VBS 2019 – To Mars and Beyond!


To Mars and Beyond VBS 2019
A fun and faith-filled week

Children Age 3 through entering 6th Grade will experience the ride of a lifetime with God! To Mars and Beyond uses music, science, crafts, games, and Bible stories to help kids discover a life-long mission with God.


Here are more details:

On Monday, participants are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in, receive their name tag, and find their Small Group for the week.

Parents or assigned guardians must sign in and sign out their children every day of Vacation Bible School.

Please enter and exit through the church’s front gate for drop-off and pick-up. Times will be announced.

On Wednesday, participants are asked to wear their VBS T-shirts for the group photo.  (T-shirts are distributed on Monday, the first day of VBS.)

On Friday, parents and friends are invited to a VBS Program in the Sanctuary. The children will share songs and stories from VBS, and the VBS video will be shown.  Following the program, everyone is invited to stay for lunch in the Social Hall.

VBS Worship is on the Sunday following VBS, at 9:30 AM in the Sanctuary.  The participants and Youth Assistants will lead worship. Everyone will enjoy seeing the completed VBS video!  After worship, families are encouraged to stay for refreshments and conversation in the Social Hall at 10:30 AM.
