Preschool-5th grade: Bible stories really sink in with the rotations stations teaching. Children move through different learning stations, one for each week with various teachers. In the first week, a Bible story is introduced. Then stories are explored through art, cooking, games, drama or puppets, science, or songs/videos to explore the story from many angles for deeper, more engaged learning.

Middle School and High School Devo: At times they help with the rotation stations and other times they meet for their own study, mission, and social activities.

Mission Possible: Young Adults: This group is team-led. They provide support and give energy to the mission activities, family life activities, and children activities throughout the life of the church.

VBS
Special Events
Vacation Bible School
VBS

Our VBS program is a fun way for children, 4 years old to 5th grade, to learn about Jesus while playing games, making crafts, listening to stories, and so much more!

Vacation Bible School is an evening program that typically runs in late July or early August. We offer a station approach where the children move in groups between a Bible story center, a Theme center, Games, Snack, and Art Center.  We have an excellent volunteer to child ratio: about 1:1. A fun time is had by all.

Light Supper is offered 5:30-6:00 p.m. Vacation Bible School Program is held 6:00-8:30 p.m. VBS is typically held the first full week of August. For more information, please call 237-9330.
