Vacation Bible School

Barnyard Roundup Vacation Bible School Kids' Camp 

Jesus Gathers Us Together

Get ready for a week of good fun, good friends, and good news about Jesus Christ! We'll be taking new steps down the path to greater faith and active service through games, crafts, singing, and stories from the Bible. Grade level groups rotate through different activities each day, with lots of time for play and making new friends. Campers bring their own lunch, and snacks will be provided.

Limited scholarships are available; please contact Rosemarie Eichner-Raja. We invite you to make a donation to the VBS scholarship fund when you register.
