Find the 2019 photos on Facebook here.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a fun-filled, five-day adventure full of Bible stories, live drama, games, songs, art, small group time and more! Children spend the week hearing and seeing stories from the Bible, memorizing God's Word and getting hands-on experience learning what it's like to be a disciple of Jesus. Check out a recap video from 2019 VBS Mission Transform.

Two Unique Programs

We offer two separate programs for different age groups at our two suburban campuses:
•  Kindergarten through grade six at our Mill Run campus
•  Preschoolers (age 18 months-Pre-K), who are accompanied by a parent or caregiver, at our Lytham Road campus
