Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a day camp for children that takes place at the beginning of June (gr. 1-8) and the end of August (early childhood). This year’s theme is Kingdom Games! Each day features a new adventure in this fun, exploration of our faith in Christ. 

Early Childhood students are invited August 22-24 from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. Register online.

Home Visits and School Supply Drop-Off

If you have a student in our Early Childhood Program, your child’s teacher will contact you in August to schedule a home visit. This 15-20 minute visit is a great opportunity for you and your child to get to know the teacher.

Students in grades 1-8 are invited to meet their teacher and drop-off school supplies on Wednesday, August 24 anytime from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. or 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
