Vacation Bible School

June 28 - July 1


Kids aged 3-12 are invited to join us at ReNew, the Green Vacation Bible School!  We'll explore Jesus' Parable of the Sower & learn about caring for our earth & each other.  Come Grow in Faith, Have Fun & Change the World!


As always, we need volunteers before, during, and after the week of VBS—there’s something for everyone! We need help decorating, gathering/buying supplies, sewing, promotion/registration on Sundays, donating/loaning items for use, working on site the week of VBS and more!
