Send your kids on an epic adventure!

Come join us for an epic African adventure that engages the whole herd! Here kids will explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them up! Wild Safari is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences, lots of creative activities, cool songs, fun games, and tasty treats! So get ready to embark on an adventure that helps kids discover that even when “Life is Wild, God is Good!

Each child will receive a t-shirt, photo, watermelon, ice cream, moonwalk, giant slide, obstacle course, face painting, water activities, and a free music CD!

Each child needs to wear sneakers and have sunscreen on each day at VBS. After they receive their VBS t-shirt, it is encouraged that they wear it each day to VBS.

Children may also bring a disposable, non-refrigerated snack to be eaten during their regular snack time.
