VBS 2018 will venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. They will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms.
VBS will be Monday, June 11-Friday, June 15. The week will include music, crafts, games, service, and Bible stories.
Daily themes are:
■ Jesus tells the parable about lost things (Luke 15). “The Lord will hold me close.” (Psalm 27:10)
■ Martha worries and complains (Luke 10:38-42). "The Lord comes to the rescue each time." (Psalm 34:19)
■ Jesus' friends try to rescue him in the garden of Gethsemane. (Luke 22:39-54, Matthew 26:36-56). "Be still, and know that I am God!" (Psalm 46:10)
■ Jesus welcomes a criminal before dying and coming back to life (Luke 23:26-24:12). "Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
■ Peter and John heal a lame man in Jesus' name (Acts 3:1-26). "This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead." (Ephesians 1:19-20)
