Vacation Bible School 2021

NEW THIS YEAR! FAMILY-STYLE
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL • SUNDAY, AUGUST 1 - THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2021

RENEW: THE GREEN VBS HE’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS

God’s creation is a gift we all share. We live in it together and depend on it together. Caring for it – together – is both a good work and collective act of faith. The Bible is filled with stories and teachings that reveal our dependence on God through the bounty of the earth. In fact, you could hardly tell the story of the chosen people or hear one of Jesus parables without water, trees, wilderness, animals, and weather forming the backdrop. RENEW VBS will weave together this rich natural imagery with engaging activities kids love, resulting in a deeper, more memorable experience of God’s Word.

We will dig deep into the Parable of the Sower (Mark 4:1-9) at RENEW VBS and experience God’s Creation through a global, local community, & personal lens. Central themes will include: Planting Seeds, Taking Root, Growing, Facing Challenges and Living Together. We are very excited to experience this theme with you!

• IN-PERSON, VIRTUAL AND TAKE HOME EXPERIENCES
• MUSIC, CRAFTS, GAMES, LOTS OF LEARNING AND GROWING WITH GOD
• AND A WHOLE BUNCH OF FUN EXPERIENCED FAMILY-STYLE!
