VBS (Vacation Bible School) July 24-28
Monday-Thursday 9 am – 2 pm and Friday 9 am – Noon

Join us for a week of Bible Study, games, songs, crafts, and fun as we turn our telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator.  Amongst the stars and planets, we will discover the wonder among all wonders– that the God who created everything there is– the knowable and unknowable, the visible and the invisible-wants a personal relationship with each and every one of us.

Check-in starts each morning at 8:50 am. Each day, campers will participate in Bible study, games, songs, silliness, crafts, lunch, quiet/nap time, science, worship, and service. Our registration numbers are broken down as follows:
 12 pre-schoolers (must be potty-trained)
 78 K-5th graders (these are the grades students will be in for the 2017-2018 school year)
