Vacation Bible School


"Rocky Railway"
Vacation Bible School 2020

June 15 – 19, 2020 // 9am – 12pm

We continue to evaluate the viability of Vacation Bible School in accordance to current and changing CDC guidelines for public gatherings. 

Join us on June 15 – 19, 2020 for our Rocky Railway VBS, the summer event that puts kids on track for trusting Jesus! At Rocky Railway, your kids will explore Jesus’ power and how they can trust Jesus to pull them through when life feels like a valley or a mountaintop. Your kids can expect a week full of faith discoveries, memorable music and a serene setting that sets a course for trusting Jesus’ power!

At Rocky Railway VBS, children don’t just hear about God’s love; they see it, touch it, taste it and put it into action through God Sightings. With easy-to-learn bible concepts, kids will discover important truths each day! As they travel from station to station, kids will learn about one memorable bible point, which is reinforced often through bible adventures, key bible verses, songs, snacks, and hands-on explorations that help children know that they can truly trust Jesus’ power!

Rocky Railway VBS is available to preschool children through 5th grade!  We also have our Little Kids Depot available for our older 2 year olds!
At Little Kids Depot, we are so excited for your older 2 year-olds (must have turned 2 by December 2019) to be joining us for their first VBS experience. This VBS program is a wonderful way to help your little ones explore God’s word in new ways. During VBS, our paid-professional, childcare staff will provide a safe haven for your child to separate from mom and dad, they will nurture and care for them in a group setting and lovingly engaging your children in all the age appropriate Rocky Railway VBS activities!


At Rocky Railway VBS you will register your child for the grade/class they are currently attending this school year.

“Alpacas for Ecuador”

Give the gift of life-changing livestock! Join Operation Kid-to-kid and give families in Ecuador a rosy future!

Rosa is an alpaca and she was uniquely created by God to live in the mountains of Ecuador! Rosa is an important part of her family. Rosa helps in the garden, provides warm clothes, takes care of the environment and is a critical source of income. For families in mountainous areas of Ecuador, an alpaca can provide 10 pounds of fleece every year! And alpacas can live up to 20 years! Rosa’s fleece is spinnable, knittable, sellable and profitable for needy families. Also, God gave alpaca’s soft pads on their feet that protect the topsoil, unlike cows or goats that have hard hooves that may hurt the spongy soil of the Andes. These gentle creatures provide excellent fertilizer for gardens which are difficult to cultivate in the rugged mountains. Adding an alpaca like Rosa to a family farm in Ecuador not only transforms the fate of the family but also helps provide jobs and resources to the entire community. They provide jobs for fleece spinners, herders and shopkeepers. They can transform a family’s circumstances and the community as additional funds pay for education, food, housing and medical help.

This summer, at our Rocky Railway VBS, your kids can help families in Ecuador! A $10 donation helps provide an Ecuadorian family with alpacas. Partnering with Group Publishing and World Vision, we can help these families with livestock that will warm their bodies, nourish their crops and improve their financial outlook!

During our VBS week, please consider making a $10 donation per child and help make a long-lasting impact across the globe! Your contribution will help not only families today but entire communities in years to come.

We would love to answer your questions!
