What Is VBS?

VBS!!! It's the acronym for Vacation Bible School. Children ages 3 to 11 gather at church each evening for fun with a focus of learning more about God. When we asked our children what they liked best about VBS the answers were as varied as the VBS learning stations. Some liked songs, some liked snacks, some liked the outdoor games, or crafts, or science, or story time. With all that, what's not to like? Come and enjoy the holychaos of Vacation Bible School. All kids and stalwart adults are welcome.
