Vacation Bible School  is a week long camp for preschoolers* - students who will be in Grade 4 in September 2017.  *Preschoolers must be 3 years old by December 30, 2016.

Children will enjoy five great days of Bible stories, storytelling, music, crafts, skits, drama and refreshments!   At VBS, kids experience the extraordinary love of God in fun and unforgettable ways by visiting various stations. The theme this year is Postcards from Rome: Paul and the Underground Church.  We start each day with energizing, fun and faith-boosting music! A different Bible Point is reinforced through bible stories, verses, songs, and hands-on activities. Our week-long camp culminates with a jubilant closing celebration and ice cream social in which students put on a final show for their families on Friday, July 14, 2017!  Scroll down to watch  videos from previous years!
