Vacation Bible School
Through the Years of VBS:
June 2023 – Stellar: Shine Jesus’ Light
Our week together for Stellar VBS took us out of this world on some incredible space adventures! We gathered daily at our launch pad with the planets lined up above us as we learned all about how to share Jesus’ light in the world around us. We were greeted daily by our own astronauts and we got to experience their space adventures as they learned how to work together to complete their mission in space.
We listened to Bible stories each day about shining the light of Jesus in our daily lives, and we made our own “bouncy planets” and straw rockets in the Imagination Station. We also learned new music, played instruments and spaced theme games, and of course, we had water play. We ended our full week with a movie, astronaut ice cream and a real rocket launch!
Stellar VBS 2023 was out of this world!
June 2022 – Monumental: Celebrating God’s Greatness
During the week of Monumental VBS, we went off-road for an exciting adventure through the colorful canyons and sunbaked trails of the southwest desert. During our time in the desert, we experienced God’s awesomeness and we learned about the greatness of God’s love through the following daily themes:
- God loves you no matter what
- God is with us everywhere
- God is stronger than anything
- God is surprising
At the Imagination Station, we made slime and participated in some cool experiments. We also celebrated the awesomeness of God through music, and we played fun games and enjoyed water play. Our time together helped our children to form a rock-solid faith for the road ahead.
June 2021 – “Moses: Let My People Go”
July 2020 – God at Work!
July 2019 – ROAR!
Each day at VBS, we went on a exciting safari to Africa and learned about life’s lessons: Sometimes life is hard, sometimes wild and fun, and God is always there to be with us, comfort us and lead us. When life is unfair, scary, or sad, God is good. When life changes, God is Good. When God is good, we remember and celebrate! Our kids and leaders explored God’s goodness and celebrated our ferocious faith that powers us through this wild life.
At the imagination station, we experimented with some of God’s amazing mysteries of nature. What an incredible scientist God is to have created the entire world and all creatures great and small! And of course, we played hard, ate together, sang and prayed together!
“Give thanks to the Lord for he is good! His faithful loves endures forever.” ~ Psalm 136:1
July 2018 – Shipwrecked!
We ventured onto an uncharted island where kids discovered how Jesus carries them through life’s storms. Shipwrecked was filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences for kids to see, hear, touch, and even taste!
June 2017 – Rome!
We explored authentic Marketplace shops, visited the Apostle Paul (who was under house arrest), snuck to the cave where the Underground Church meets, took part in games, danced to lively Bible songs, and sampled tasty tidbits as we discovered more about the early church. These experiences made God’s Word come alive with new meaning for all who participated!
