Preschoolers have a special Shipwrecked VBS program of their own!
Littles ones who have not yet completed Kindergarten gather with the older kids for Castaway Sing & Play each day where they sing and do fun motions to exciting Bible songs that introduce kids to the concepts they will be learning that day. Then they move to their own special Preschool Tide Pool area with a simpler learning environment and more free-choice play.

Come Hang Out With Us!

Shipwrecked VBS where kids discover how Jesus rescues them through life's storms! This year's VBS is filled with one-of-a-kind Bible-learning experiences that kids see, hear, touch, and even taste. It's the best week of the summer!

In Shipwrecked VBS, kids are assigned to Castaway Crews of children and an adult Crew Leader. Crew Members work closely with each other all week at VBS. They also provide an organizational structure that helps kids progress from station to station in an orderly manner.

The mission collection this year will go to our sister church, Marineu Church in Haiti to help rebuild their church that was destroyed during Hurricane Matthew.
New Friends … Amazing experiments … Creative Games … Tropical treats … Surprising adventures … Incredible music
