Vacation Bible School

Back Yard Vacation Bible School!

Parents and Caretakers,

We were all bummed at the cancelation of Vacation Bible School for this summer.  It is such an awesome experience for the students in our church, and we know many of your children look forward to that week every year! While we can’t meet in a large group setting, we wanted to make sure your kids had access to fun biblical material for this summer. 

So, we hope you’ll be able to use this 5 day SuperHero VBS series.  The material has been scaled down to allow for smaller groups. It is also very attainable for teachers of any level.  Our vision would be to have small backyard Vacation Bible Schools across the city this summer, with the love of God going out into the very places where we live.

We do ask that if you use this material that you follow all suggested guidelines as prescribed by the State of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Health.  We want to have fun, but we also want to be safe.  As these guidelines are ever changing, please visit https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/ for the most up to date guidance.

Important Announcement!  

The 2020 Large Group VBS has been canceled due to Covid-19 concerns.  We are sad at this turn of events and know how many students  and volunteers look forward to VBS each year.  We are grateful to all the workers that had already volunteered, and look forward to VBS returning in 2021.

Vacation Bible School is a summer children's program where kids learn about Jesus and how much God loves them. Each day, the kids watch a drama presentation, sing together, listen to a Bible lesson, make a craft, and play games. It is a week they never forget!
