Vacation Bible School for kids (2018)


June 25-29, 2018



Spark Imagination with faith-building fun as we venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive as they learn that Jesus can rescue us and give us eternal life. Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms.

You won't believe the decorations and atmosphere where kids will feel they are on an island together having so much fun.  This is "fun plus" as kids learn life changing things while having the time of their lives.

Sign-up your little ones today (4yrs old - 6th grade) by stopping at the church office and filling out the "Registration Form" or by stopping by the VBS table on Sunday morning.  Or you can go online here (click the link) and download the registration form to fill out ahead of time and bring it to the church.

Invite a friend.  In fact, you can download and print your own flyer to invite your friends.  CLICK here!

This is going to be an amazing week! And only cost $10...for everything.  This includes games, snack, crafts, Bible stories, videos, singing, and more.


You can also sign up to help bring some snack items for the kids. We also need some help to paint the sets and decorate on Saturday, June 23 after the mandatory volunteer training meeting at 9:30AM.  All the information is at the table in the lobby!

And for our volunteers...don't forget that mandatory volunteer training meeting at 9:30AM on June 23...see you there!

Missionary Prayer Focus:  Pastor Don Meinberg - Reflections Christian Fellowship  (Perris, CA)

“I had a vision of bringing the gospel to an area where the harvest was huge but the workers were few.  The May Ranch community was full of forclosed, boarded up homes and little hope.  There were very few churches in the area that welcomed everyone to worship God.  This is why I started our church in this area."
