2018 Vacation Bible School
July 23, 2018 @ 9:30 am - July 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm EDT
Our annual Vacation Bible School is available for children from ages 4 through 12, with children are grouped according to their age/grade to ensure appropriateness of lesson. Children from various churches in the community attend our Vacation Bible School. Typically scheduled for the last week in July, children are invited to enjoy a morning learning Bible stories, playing games with peers, creating themed crafts, and have a snack. Each class will learn a chosen Bible verse and hymn or Psalter.
Planning for Vacation Bible School begins months in advance with our dedicated teachers selecting and developing a gospel-centered, child friendly theme rather than purchasing a boxed curriculum. Daily, the same topic is discussed in each class, however, teachers work to bring an age-appropriate message and application to their class.
The week concludes with a presentation for parents and guests. A slide show projects while people gather in the sanctuary waiting for the beginning of the presentation. Each class will share their song and Bible text and the entire group will share the VBS song for the week. A time of fellowship follows. Our Consistory provides each child with a gift, usually an age-appropriate book.
