VBS for 2019 is scheduled for August 5 - August 9 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. each night. The theme this year is "ROAR," created by Group, Inc. and students will enjoy an African savanna style week of snacks, lessons, games and crafts. After the week-long VBS, parents and attendees are invited to join us for worship on Sunday, August 11 to show off what they learned during the week and to mingle and commune with our congregation. Students in attendance this year will receive a free t-shirt, CD with all VBS songs, and souveniers throughout the week in addition to the wonderful experience of VBS.

To register, go to or stop by the church office during office hours.
