Vacation Bible School


Monday-Friday ~ August 13-17 ~ 9 a.m. – Noon

This year’s Vacation Bible School is entitled SHIPWRECKED!  Kids will discover that Jesus rescues them.  On this interactive adventure, curious kids learn that there is Someone bigger than their struggles, Someone stronger than their weakness, and Someone who loves them unconditionally….Jesus!  Shipwrecked strives to teach the kids important truths in fresh new ways – and dive right into the Bible.  VBS is for kids entering 4K through 6th grade.  Each day, they will move through field-tested activity stations with their Crews.  Every station is designed to reinforce the daily Bible message in a hands-on, interactive way that keeps everyone engaged.

At Castaway Sing & Play, children will start the day together singing a fun mix of classic worship songs and some brand new songs.  They will experience the Bible in a very real and active way through Bible Discovery, and then circle up with their Crews for thought-provoking discussions.  At KidVid Cinema, we will watch short films about real kids who tell how God rescued them.  At the Imagination Station, kids will be challenged with Sciency-Fun Gizmos that reinforce the Bible message for the day.  All of the children in attendance will also enjoy running, jumping, and even splashing through games that connect with the daily Bible verse at the Ship Rec Games station.  Finally, our crews will take turns preparing and serving the yummy snacks that connect with the day’s theme at Tropical Treats.  WHEW!!  Each and every day is filled with busy-ness and FUN!!

Don’t miss out on this wonderful summer opportunity here at First Church!  Look for the registration form (link below), or pick up a form at the Gathering Table in the Atrium.  The cost is $10 for the first child, $5 for each additional child, with a maximum cost of $20 per family.
