Vacation Bible School
(VBS)

Every summer we offer a fun learning experience for children by providing bible adventures, key Bible verses, songs, snacks, and hands-on explorations. 

Missions

Families with children gather to make sandwiches, prepare hot lunches, ride bikes to generate energy, shred paper or beautify the green space. Even the youngest family member can do something to help!

Kids’ Summer Mission Trip

Fourth and fifth graders have the opportunity to  learn about their faith by participating in a mission trip.
