Bring your whole family out to celebrate God's greatness at Monumental VBS! We'll have awesome Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, and touch. Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, unforgettable Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we'll help your whole family discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life - something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!
While on-site registration will be available, registering your family ahead of time means less waiting when you arrive and helps us ensure we have all the materials we need for you to join in on the adventure! Thanks for helping us make this event as smooth and fun as possible.

Monumental VBS Details:
Here’s how it’s going to work:
Our Monumental VBS is a family-style experience. It's designed for the whole family to attend together - plus aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, or friends you decide to invite with you! The point is for you to have a blast while having God-centered conversations together. So, rather than making groups of kids from different families, each family is a "group" with the parents or caregivers being the "group leader" (Don't worry. We give you all the tools you need to lead your kids.). It's part of how we want to equip you to disciple your family!
Because we're inviting the whole family, we know that can get tricky with work schedules. So, we're opening up the lawn next to the church parking lot at 5:15 PM each evening as a family picnic zone. You can bring your dinner along, enjoy it together, then take the few steps from there to the sanctuary for the Celebration Time beginning at 5:45 PM each evening. Or, if you'd rather eat at home, that's okay too!
Monumental VBS can be fun for preschoolers up through kids entering fifth grade. If you need nursery care for younger ones, let us know when you register so we can arrange for childcare.
If you have any questions, let us know. We're happy to help!
Want to Help?
Want to help us make it a memorable week for the kids in our church and community? Here’s a few ways you can help:
Pizza & Painting Party: Join us on Tuesday, June 28 at 6:30 PM for food and plenty of set painting. No fancy skills required - If you can use a paint roller, you can help!
Decorating Extravaganza: We'll be pulling all the pieces together and putting on the final touches on Thursday, July 21 at 6:30 PM. Don't miss out on the fun!
Tear-Down Team: The end of VBS is always a bummer, but eventually we have to pack it all away. We're looking for extra hands to help us tear down decorations after church on Sunday, July 31.
Driving around: We have a few churches who are lending us their decorations and donating some supplies, but need to pick them up then return them when we're done.
Helping During Monumental VBS: Want to help during the week of VBS? We have loads of opportunities to serve!
