Vacation Bible Adventure 2018

Price: $30

Sign up for Vacation Bible Adventure 2018!

July 9-13 | Daily from 1:30-4:30pm

Cost: $30/child | Scholarships available

Children entering grades 1-6 in the 2018-19 school year
*Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers may attend if their parents are volunteering on site

Grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune up your horn. It’s time to gear up for the big game! It’s go time! Whether you’re the type to root from the stands, march in the band, cheer on the field, or hustle to the line, the time is now—it’s Game On!

Kids are under so much pressure—to perform well, to be the best, to balance schedules that are full to the brim, to excel in every arena. From that vantage point, life’s big game can seem like no fun. But when we step back, we realize that the goal is not competing in our own strength. God has already given us everything we need! He’s given us His complete Word as the ultimate playbook. He’s given us Himself, which gives us a reason to celebrate. He wants us to join His team, to train hard, to celebrate our salvation, to encourage one another, and spur each other on. So what are you waiting for? This is Vacation Bible Adventure 2018. It’s Game On!

Questions?  Laura Quaratiello, Mindy Lincicome, or Heather Carlson

We need over 100 volunteers to make VBA happen. Sign up to volunteer at the link below.
