VBSHave you ever felt stranded, feeling as if no one understands you and not knowing where to turn? At our SHIPWRECKED VBS, children will discover how Jesus rescues us through life's storms! They will learn that Jesus came to die for our sins and make a way for us to live with God forever. That's how much He loves us!

Our young castaways won't just hear about God's love — they'll see it, touch it, sing it, taste it, and put it into action as they experience memorable Bible adventures, praise God with lively singing and dancing, enjoy creative, teamwork-building outdoor games, assemble and savor tropical treats, test out sciency-fun experiments and crafts, keep on the lookout for God sightings, and more. Children will participate in grade-level groups of fellow voyagers, and they'll meet lots of new friends!











Who can rescue you... when you are lonely?

Who can rescue you... when you are worried?

Who can rescue you... when you struggle?

Who can rescue you... when you do wrong things?

Who can rescue you... when you feel powerless?

At SHIPWRECKED VBS, you'll discover the answer:

JESUS rescues us all!

VBS packets with forms can also be found outside of the church and at the parish office. Sorry, but late registrations cannot be accepted.

We need plenty of enthusiastic volunteers to make our SHIPWRECKED VBS a spectacular success! We are looking for adults and energetic, responsible, and dependable students who are currently in grades 6 - 12 to be part of our fun-filled VBS program. Nursery services will be available for volunteers who have children under 3 years old, and student volunteer hours may be eligible for service requirements. Please fill out and return a volunteer form by June 1.
