To Mars and Beyond!

Explore Where God's Power Can Take You
Ages 4 years old - 5th grade

To Mars and Beyond VBS invites Voyagers (students ages 4 years old - 5th grade) on a space travel adventure to explore where God's power can take them! Along the journey, Voyagers discover a new realm of possiblities as they reach for the stars and encounter the limitless power and love of God! All Voyagers will hear the daily Bible story at Assembly as they praise God with fun, uplifting music. Elementary students will rotate through five stations: Snack and Group Time, Missions, Art, Science and Recreation.  Preschool and Rising Kindergarten students will rotate to Centers (where they will also have snack and story time), Science, Art and Recreation. 

  • Monday - Thursday, July 29 - August 1

  • Cost: $20 for the first child, $10 each additional child

VBS Service Squad
(Rising 6th to 7th Grade Students)

New this year, tweens who will be in 6th or 7th grade in Fall 2019 are invited to join our VBS Service Squad! They will check-in and meet in the Assembly, and then they will have a program designed just for their age group. They will learn the Bible lesson, play awesome games like Bumper Ball, and complete daily service projects behind-the-scenes at Vacation Bible School. We are suggesting a $10 donation to cover the t-shirt (which will be the volunteer shirt) and snacks. Please register with the same link as for the younger kids.

Note: Rising 6th graders are also eligible to be participants in the "normal" VBS program. If your rising 6th grader would like to rotate to the art, science and other VBS stations, please register as a 5th grader to ensure that they are placed in the correct group!
