WHY VBS?

Our VBS camp is a ministry designed to reach children 3 years old through 5th grade, leading them to know and respond to Jesus Christ. It is one of the greatest evangelistic weeks in the life of the church, and it is so much fun!!!

As you look for summer fun and activities, think about the potential lifelong impact that a week of Vacation Bible School has.  It provides an "in your neighborhood" camp experience that focuses on Jesus, plus it's fun!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Vacation Bible School Camp is fast approaching and we would love your help!  This year's VBS camp dates are August 6-8th. Our program runs 9a - 11:30a. The theme for this year is "Shipwrecked, Rescued by Jesus". Whether you can give a day, or the whole week, we'd love to have you on the team. If you are willing or able to volunteer, please contact the church office. We thank you so much!!

VBS HISTORY

VBS has had one of the best track records for reaching kids and their families for Christ. The Southern Baptist convention reports every year:

•    2.7 million people enrolled in VBS

•    72, 925 faith decisions are made at VBS

•     56,386 people per year join Sunday school/small groups as a result of attending VBS

The first recorded Vacation Bible School can be traced back to Hopedale, Illinois in 1894. It enrolled forty students and lasted four weeks.  Most churches do not have four week-long camps anymore, but most offer 3 to 5-day camps. They usually consists of:

•    Interactive "Up beat" worship

•    Creative Bible stories

•    Arts and Crafts

•    Science experiments

•    High energy games

•    Wonderful "Exceptionally sweet" snacks

Integrated into all that activity, kids are hanging out with a bunch of kids their own ages and learning about Jesus!
