VBS: *Ages 5 – 12  *AUGUST 5-8  *9 am – Noon

THEME:  JESUS “KING OF KINGS”

EMPHASIS: We will be helping the children understand that even the kings of the earth need Jesus.  We will study some of the kings in the Bible who eventually became aware of their need to humble themselves before the King of Heaven.  Every one of us need to realize our need for His rulership in our lives as well.  This will be a fun week of skits, Bible lessons, games, and more designed to help us all understand our need for Jesus.

We make it our mission to help the kids HAVE FUN while learning!  

  • The songs are lively and teach the message of our theme as well.
  • The Bible Memory time is made fun by means of MEMORY GAMES.  Every child is helped to be able to memorize the verse of the day.
  • BIBLE TIME in the VBS is taught by Pastor Kaighen who is very good with children.
  • Pastor will use object lessons & puppets while teaching clear Bible stories that proclaim the truth of Jesus and His Word. (For a sample of his teaching to children, Check out the YouTube channel for Papa Kaighen’s Bible Time)

We will have singing, classroom time, outdoor games time, toy store, and chapel time.
