What is Vacation Bible School?

Vacation Bible School, or VBS, is a summer program that many churches offer to connect with children and families in the community. It’s been a popular program for decades and usually runs for about a week. Each program has its own exciting theme and usually includes games, snacks, crafts, skits, learning songs, and Bible stories. There is always a connection between God and the theme of the program, which allows children to discover more about God in a creative and fun-filled way!

Is a Religious Background Needed to Attend?

Absolutely not!

VBS is open to everyone, regardless of their religious background.

Is there a cost?

Nope! VBS is a completely FREE program. However, if you are interested in letting your child(ren) enjoy a full day of activities and choose to sign them up for the Sportball morning program (8-12 pm), there is a $25 fee for that.
