What: Fun, Lessons, Snacks, Games, Music, Crafts, Skits!
Each morning, VBS will open with a fun, music-filled gathering where students will be introduced to the Bible point and key verse for the day. After the opening celebration, students will travel with their class (classes based on grade level) to the different stations- Area games (recreation), Marketplace Shops (arts & crafts), Paul’s Adventures (small group lesson time), and Food Market (snack time). Everyone will come together again for the closing celebration and review the lessons they learned during the day. During VBS, students will not only have loads of fun playing, jumping around, and singing, but they will also learn and experience God’s Word in a fun and interactive way.
