Vacation Bible School
Journey Off the Map
Join us on a journey that will take you to uncharted territory where we will begin to understand that obedience to God can lead us beyond the expected. So, toss the map, stick close to your guide, and prepare to listen for God’s direction in this journey that is unknown to us, but known by Him. There are 3 ways to enjoy this great event: Attend, Serve, and Play!

The Day Of
We'd love to have you! We have a place for everyone - games, crafts, small groups, worship, decorations, VBX, and much more! Please click on the button below to register to volunteer, and if your child is coming with you to VBS, please tell us by registering them below.
Can't help the week of but want to get involved? Consider helping the decorations team. If you love transforming spaces into amazing places where children can explore and learn, then this team might be for you.
CRAFTS: This year's crafts will be using some elements of nature, one specifically will require a lot of small sticks (roughly 8-12 inches long). Please remember us as you're cleaning up your yards this spring and bring them in! There is a collection box on the third floor grade school hallway near the balcony entrance.
HOSPITALITY ROOM: This is a place where our amazing volunteers can take a break and refuel. Donations can be dropped off at the information desk at any time. Suggested items: 2 liter sodas, orange juice, cookies, chips/dip, donuts, brownies, pretzels, cupcakes, fruit, veggies/dip, or crackers/cheese.
