Vacation Bible School
In the interest of everyone's health and well-being, we have made the hard decision to move VBS to an online setting this year. Though we will miss getting to see everyone's faces, we are so excited to have the chance to connect with everyone virtually! Use the links and videos below for songs, games, crafts, and more! You can access the videos at any time so that VBS can fit into your schedule!

Day 3: We Are Like Trees

Join us for Day 3 of a Great Big Beautiful World! Sometimes, the Bible gives us examples of ways to live by pointing to special things in nature. Today, we’ll look at several different verses that teach us ways in which we can grow strong in our faith and produce good fruit, just like healthy trees! Other activities will help us appreciate the beauty of God’s creation, and become more observant of the world that sustains us.

Day 4: A New Creation

Welcome to our last day of Great Big Beautiful World! In Revelation 21 & 22, John invites us to think about the new heaven and new earth that God will one day bring. Today, we’ll consider what that new earth might look like, and how we can work towards bringing God’s peace and glory to this very earth we live on today! Crafts and games will help us better understand John’s vision, and encourage us to fill our great big beautiful world with more light and love.
