Summer Ministries for Children Changing

Due to social distancing guidelines in place through the summer, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our usual summer ministries such as Vacation Bible School, Drama Camp, and Movies with a Message. We still hope to provide fun resources for children and families to grow in their faith this summer. Stay tuned for fun at-home and virtual alternative programming! Knight of North Castle VBS will come Summer 2021!


Venture into a frozen land in search of the King's mighty armor!

North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King's valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King's Armor. But the armor isn't what they think it is...

This year's VBS, Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King's Armor invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave knights as they explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor - the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation.

VBS Service Squad 

The Service Squad helps station and group leaders at VBS with behind the scenes service projects. They prep food for snack, complete mission projects, prepare bags for art, and many other service projects that help our VBS run smoothly. In addition, they attend Assembly and have Bible study and game time. They get a volunteer t-shirt that is included in registration. This is a great transition between being a VBS participant and a VBS Youth Helper.

  • Cost: $15 Registration Fee

Note About Graduating 5th Grade/Rising 6th Grade Students. These kids have a choice about if they want to participate in VBS one more time as a student, or if they'd like to attend Service Squad. If they want to be a participants, please register them as a 5th grade student. If they want to be in the service squad, please register them as a 6th grade student.

VBS Youth Helpers

We could not offer our quality VBS program without the aid of our youth helpers! Youth helpers are placed in stations or with group leaders (based on interest, age and ability) to assist as needed. They provide a great example for the younger children!

  • Ages: Rising 8th Grade - 12th Grade
  • Cost: $10 donation for the shirt and training costs appreciated
