August 14th-18th
5 pm-7:30 pm

 

VBS is free and there will be dinner at the beginning of each night.  

We will end our week with "Music and Magic on the Lawn".

Turn your kids into Galactic Starveyors!
As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders - that the God who created everything there is - the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible - wants a personal relationship with them! Invite your kids into the clubhouse and show them the God who is over the moon in love with them.
