VBS 2022

This summer we will celebrate VBS during our Sunday School hour each week!

Anne and Grace Durrett will be the VBS leaders so be prepared for whacky music/dance and super fun games and thoughtful Bible lessons!

Our theme this year is ROCKY RAILWAY!

Rocky Railway doesn’t rely on more traditional teaching methods (like fill in the blank puzzles or word searches), kids EXPERIENCE Bible stories in powerful, life changing ways!

VBS begins Sunday, June 26th at 9:30 a.m.

Meet at the Side Door Service and following the Children’s Message we will hop on the train for a summer of FUN!
