2016 Vacation Bible School

VBS 2016 Egypt

27June-01July16 ~ Vacation Bible School! Our theme was “Egypt: Joseph, from Prison to Palace.”

Pictures below! 

Children Experienced the Thrill of Visiting Ancient Egypt!
They joined Joseph as he swatted away scorpions in a dark prison cell…strolled through the golden splendor of Pharaoh’s palace… experienced exotic sights and smells in an Egyptian bazaar…were carried away by music wafting through the enticing desert air. What a week of fun—and lasting Bible learning!

Make a Lasting Impression with God’s Word
From Opening to Closing and everything in between, kids were transported to ancient Egypt where they met Bible-times heroes and explored firsthand the unique culture of Joseph’s world.

We Ended Our Week-Long Festivities in Egypt at The Pharaoh’s Family Feast

VBS 2015 Friday night 024 (800x532)We feasted on delectable Mummy Dogs, Giza Baked Beans, Veggies from King Ramses’ Garden & Watermelon Fresh from The Nile Valley. Then, join us at Cleopatra’s Campfire for Sphinx’s Smores (YUMMY!!!).

2015 Vacation Bible School

Our guides and trekkers have finished their Vacation Bible School adventure to Everest!

They went on an icy expedition where kids overcome obstacles with God’s awesome power. The guides anchored kids in rock-solid Bible truths that will guide them through life’s challenges.
A HUGE THANKS to everyone who made this amazing week possible!

Our Vacation Bible School good news continues! The children donated almost $60 to be sent to Biblica, which will use it to give specially designed New Testaments to children in Thailand.

Family Picnic — It was so great to see all the kids and their families for this fun evening of food, singing, and s’mores!
