VBS 2019

At Roar VBS, kids discover that even though life gets wild, God is good. Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings®. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!


Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project, through a program called Operation Kid-to-Kid™, that will provide nutrition and good health opportunities to families in our local community.


Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at Safari Celebration each day where we’ll wrap up with a daily exploration of our God’s goodness!


So mark your calendar and plan to join in the fun!
