Vacation Bible School

Purpose
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a spirit-filled adventure for all age groups, babies through adults, that provides concentrated Bible Study and encourages real-life applications. VBS is one of the most strategic outreach tools for the church and include age-appropriate evangelism emphasis.
 
VBS is a flagship church event, uniquely inviting and exciting for everyone involved. VBS is centered on a theme that permeates content, methodology, and the learning environment, creating an experience totally distinct from Sunday School.
 
VBS provides sound, relevant Bible study that enables participants to experience and respond to the gospel message in ways that are appropriate for them as led by the Holy Spirit. Everything that happens during a day at VBS grows out of the biblical content and emphasis of that day. The primary elements of VBS are Bible study, worship, crafts, music, missions, recreation, and snacks. Each age group may adapt these elements.
 
Vacation Bible School is our largest Evangelistic outreach ministry and is an entry point to the church and Christianity for many people. VBS gives the church the opportunity to establish long-term relationships with these people.

Finding Truth
Below the Surface
 
Prepare to embark on an adventure like no other, scouring the mysterious fathoms of the deep sea. Thrilling discoveries wait just beyond the portholes of your submarine. Things look very different once you get below the surface – and that’s true for life above the surface, too. As kids of all ages submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus saw people differently. He didn’t just see what’s on the outside; He saw who people were deep down. Participants will learn to see themselves and others as Jesus sees them, they can realize that everyone needs a Savior – even those who look like they have it all together.
 
All you have to do is dive in!
