VBS 2022

We have an exciting summer filled with many opportunities for our youth to be involved. This year’s VBS will be Sunday, July 17 through Wednesday, July 20. This year’s theme, “Monumental”, is all about celebrating God’s Greatness. Our theme verse is from Psalm 66:5 “Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for People!”. Our high school youth will again be leading the classes and opening and closing. We will need volunteers to help VBS run smoothly, so keep an eye out for opportunities to help. We will have a VBS kick-off during Worship on Sunday, July 17.  Click below to register.
