Vacation bible school


Monday, June 11 - Thursday, June 14, 2018


Get ready for Shipwrecked, where kids learn that Jesus rescues!  During this amazing experience, we will help kids (and adults) begin or deepen their faith by discovering that Jesus cares about them personally and rescues in life’s toughest circumstances. 

The excitement will last from Monday, June 11 – Thursday, June 14, 2018.

Shipwrecked Vacation Bible School is an exciting fun-filled Bible based program.  As the children are surrounded by God’s Word, the reality of God’s love gains new meaning and relevance to their everyday lives.  Small groups of kids and crew leaders will rotate through different stations.  They will sing and do fun motions to upbeat Bible songs in Castaway Sing & Play and Sail Away Sendoff, sample tasty snacks in Tropical Treats, go on Bible Discoveries, make creations in Imagination Station, race around in Ship Rec Games, and visit KidVid Cinema. Each activity is designed to reinforce the biblical concepts that when you’re lonely, worried, struggling or do wrong…Jesus rescues!

** An “elementary” child at Due West UMC Vacation Bible School was in kindergarten through 5th grade during the 2017-2018 school year.  We do not promote children until August so you must register your child for the grade that he/she is currently in. 

Vacation Bible School for elementary kids (K-4th – 2017-2018 school year) is from 8:45 am – noon in the North Campus building.

Our 5th graders (2017-2018 school year) have a program of their own from 8:45 – noon.  They join the other elementary kids for the opening and closing assemblies, but spend the rest of the morning in the Youth Center participating in activities planned just for them. 

VBS packets (containing crew assignments, nametags, etc.) will be available for pickup June 3rd-7th. Weekday pickup is available in the church office (Admin 2) from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm; Sunday pickup on June 3 is available in the Children's Check-in area from 9:00 am - noon.

I would like to register to be a VBS volunteer.
