Each summer, Christ Memorial runs a FREE, Christ-centered, fun, and educational 5-day program that we call Vacation Bible School (VBS). This year’s program is for kids age 3 years through 5th grade; students in 6th grade or higher are welcome and encouraged to volunteer!
At VBS 2017: Maker Fun Factory, kids discover that God made them—and for a purpose! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Funshop Finale that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.
When is it?
Who may participate?
Children who are at least 3 years old [and potty-trained] through children who are entering 5th grade in the fall may attend VBS as participants. We welcome any students who are older than this to join our team of volunteers!

Current VBS Needs
As we plan, we will be addressing a great many details. We desire your prayers for both the leaders and participants in this year’s VBS, that each person may come away with a greater sense of being LOVED and SENT.
Because VBS is an annual, familiar event for our congregation, we sometimes lose excitement. Let this year be different – embrace it. Share it! Encourage volunteers and young families you know to get involved. Your enthusiasm can go a long way!
VBS takes many hands. In addition to classroom teachers and assistants, and snack, game, and craft station leaders (sign up above to volunteer for these!), we also need help with the following:
- Vision and leadership for decoration of the spaces we’ll use
- Technology expertise
- Snack and craft items
If you’re interested in helping in any of these ways, please contact Lauren (below).
