Event Details:

  • Date: Monday - Friday, July 17 - 21, 9AM - 12PM

  • Price: FREE
    Through the efforts of many volunteers and donations, we are fortunate to not require a registration fee.



  1. Please do not send your child(ren) with a cell phone.  If he or she is seen with a cell phone, their Team Leader will hold onto the phone for them until the end of the day and you can collect the phone from the church office when you pick up your child(ren).

  2. For the safety and well-being of all of the children, we expect all children to be respectful of everyone around them.  This includes listening to all Team Leaders, Site Leaders, and all of the other children.  This also means the children are expected to keep their hands to themselves.

  3. This year’s Vacation Bible School is designed to get the children involved.  We hope every child will feel encouraged to participate in all activities during the day.

  4. HAVE FUN!
