Vacation Bible School

Monday, July 16, to Friday, July 20, from 9:30am to 11:30am


Children ages 3-13 are welcome to join our free Vacation Bible School program this summer. Each morning we will have an exciting morning of singing, Bible lessons, snacks and games! Our preschool room will be open for ages 3-4, and there will be a full program for ages 5-10.

1. Creation: Did you know the Son of God has always existed? We’ll talk about his existence before time and his activity at Creation.

2. Christophany: Big, cool word the kids will love learning that teaches the Son of God didn’t start as a babe in a manger but has been around forever, actively involved throughout history, including the Old Testament! They’ll study the biblical accounts of Abraham and Moses that show appearances of the Son of God to people before he came to earth.

3. Cross: Here’s when Jesus is actually given the name “Jesus.” And here’s where he lives, dies, and comes back to life. It’s the most epic historical account ever! Because of him, we can live forever, too! Although opportunities to present the gospel are provided every day, this is the day we’ll present the gospel in all its glory.

4. Clouds: After Jesus rose again, where did he go? He’s actively working on our behalf as he sits at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for us, protecting his Church, and preparing a place for his children! Wow!

5. Crown: We’ll end our tour through time at the new heaven and new earth, where Jesus and his children will live together in the most amazing place forever. Whatever your best day ever has been, a day on the new earth will blow it away!

Guest speaker and Creation Scientist, Fred Gayford, will be teaching the oldest group again this year, and he invites parents and caregivers to stay and learn from his fascinating presentations. (*Child care is provided for those who would like to join Mr. Gayford’s group)

Our closing program and free community BBQ will be on Friday, July 20, at 6:30pm, complete with a slideshow, the children presenting the new songs they learned, and a brief overview of our week. There will be lots of good food for everyone; you won’t want to miss it! Invite your families and neighbours!
