Each summer we host vacation bible school, typically held from Sunday evening through Thursday evening with dinner at 5:30 and VBS program starting around 5:50. The children rotate through Bible story, crafts, music, and science classes, with snacks. We end our week with a family presentation on the last night and the kids sing in the next Sunday morning service. We love VBS week and we love our kids!

Children are returned to their families during the last song of the service.
