Making Waves at VBS—and Beyond!

“What you do today can change the world around you”

The BEST WEEK EVER in 2023 is definitely a BIG SPLASH! Our kids will be challenged with the statement, “What you do today can change the world around you!”

We want kids to know:

  • God made people with a purpose.
  • Jesus invited people to follow Him.
  • Jesus loves you and you can trust Him.

We want kids to grow:

  • In their self-confidence.
  • In team-building skills.
