June 18-22, 9:30 am-12:30 pm

A summer kids’ event called Shipwrecked VBS will be hosted at John Knox Presbyterian Church June 18th – June 22nd from 9:30 am -12:30 pm for children ages 3yrs old- 6th grade. At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, 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 a Sail Away Sendoff that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at noon.

The cost is $25 per child, with a $60 ($25/$20/$15) max per family. Register by Sunday, June 3 and receive a FREE VBS t-shirt. Scholarships are available upon request.

To have the best adventure possible, we need lots of volunteers! Adults and youth (entering 7th grade and older) can help! Here are a few ideas about ways you might be able to make this program a success. Please check out the following list, and then pray about where God might use you:

Station Leaders: Use easy-to-follow station leader manuals and prepare one 20-minute session each day, which you will repeat with four different groups of approximately 20 kids.

Crew Leaders for elementary children and preschoolers: Shepherd a mixed-age group of about five children through each day’s activities…and there’s no preparation!

Registration begins May 6. Participants and volunteers can register online after May 6th or stop by the VBS table located next to the Sunday School check-in area. Register online:
