for children ages 4 to 12.

Send your kids on a tropical adventure!

Come experience Shipwrecked, where kids venture onto an uncharted island and learn to survive and thrive. Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms. Shipwrecked 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 God is always there for them!

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.
