Vacation Bible School

June 18-22, 2018 | 6 - 8:30pm 

Join us for our Shipwrecked VBS this summer! We want to anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms and rescues in life's tough circumstances. As kids are surrounded by God's Word, the reality of God's love will gain new meaning and relevance for their everyday lives. We will have a week full of fun, incredible music in a relaxing island-getaway setting that will point kids to Jesus!

  • Vacation Bible School runs from 6:00-8:30pm nightly.
  • Programming is available for children 4 years old by August 31 AND potty trained, through 5th grade. 
  • Westover KidsCare will be provided for the volunteers' children who are under 4.
  • We will have a special program for 5th graders called VBXtreme that will help them transition into middle school.

 

Serve with us during VBS!

Did you know it takes over 300 volunteers to make VBS a success? We have 10 different volunteer roles available. Here is how you can serve and teach children about being rescued by Jesus:

Pre-School Crew Leader  |  Preschoolers will start in their classrooms!  You will lead the children during the classroom time which is reviewing the bible story, supervising free play, and guiding them to the stations on the hall.  Register Here

Elementary Crew Leader  | You will have a group of 6-8 kids that you will travel from station to station together.  You will also lead the small group discussion related to the bible story, bible truth, and bible verse each night.  All materials are given ahead of time in training to give preparation time ahead. Register Here

VBS Buddy  | You will be paired one-on-one with a preschool or elementary aged child that week who needs extra assistance during VBS. Register Here
