Vacation Bible School
VBS is a great way to help children explore Jesus’ love in amazing new ways. For one week each summer, our church building is transformed into a fun and exciting theme. Our journeys have taken us on a Serengeti safari, a romp through the swamp, sailing on the high seas, and more. Children 4 years old to entering 5th grade are encouraged to join us for a wonderful week of adventure.
Throughout the year, we enjoy some terrific special events. These include such things as Bonfires, Easter Egg Hunt, Movie Nights, Game Nights, and more. Watch for announcements of our next event in the sunday morning bulletin, or on this website. We’ll have a GREAT time.
We encourage all kids to experience Christ centered camping at the Southern Illinois Christian Service Camp in West Frankfort, Illinois. In fact, we cover half the fee. Just take your registration form to the church office for an authorized signature. We have camp brochures available, which include the summer schedule and information about the camp, or you can get more information online at www.sicsc.com
