VBS and Youth

VBS Ministry

July 15th - 19th, 2024

Vacation Bible School is always a fun time for kids of all ages! We run Monday - Friday starting at 9 am. This year's theme is Armor of God and our teachers are so excited to help your children learn about how God's word protects you like armor. Our VBS will be split into 2 groups this year; Preschool (3-5) and Elementary (6+). The children meet in the main tabernacle for song time, then will go on to have story time, snack, craft, and finally will play at the playground where you will pick them up at 11 am! 

Teachers and helpers are always needed in our VBS program. Teaching a child to love God is the best gift you can give them!

You can register your child for VBS here!

Jeanne Shaffer- VBS director

Youth Ministry 

July 15th - 19th, 2024

Our youth groups spend the week learning about God and having fun! In the morning, Monday through Friday at 10 am, they break into Junior High and Senior High groups for Bible study. While they grow their faith, they also learn to grow with each other; many lifelong friendships have been formed on our mountain! Our youth leaders will have a daily afternoon activity as well to make sure while they are learning the teens also get time to blow off steam and have fun! Some fun examples in years past have been swimming, bowling, or going to the closest trampoline park! 

 You can register for 2024 Youth Group here!
