Take kids deep into an amazing undersea adventure where they’ll experience the ever-flowing, never-ending love of God. At Scuba VBS, kids will be immersed in the Word and discover what living water is really all about!

Volunteers needed for Vacation Bible School

We are getting ready for VBS 2024!  To make it amazing, we will need lots of wonderful adults who are willing to take these kids on the faith adventure of a lifetime! We also welcome Youth Helpers (with a supervising adult), who love leading kiddos!

VBS will be held June 3-6, from 9am -12pm. We ask for volunteers to arrive by 8:30 to be prepared to welcome our kids.

Nursery is available for kids 3 and under if you are volunteering! Nursery sign up is included in this volunteer form.

Energize Camp @ Blue Lake - June 24-28

All 3rd-5th graders are invited to join us for Energize Camp at Blue Lake in Andalusia this summer! The week of June 24-28, campers will do everything from swimming in the lake to archery, capture the flag, GaGa ball, arts and crafts, and worship!
Each morning, kids will start their days off right with devotions at the lake. Evenings will also include a devotion time where campers will learn about His word through meaningful discussions about their faith and God!
Although each day of camp has its own unique flavor, every camp is held to the same high standards. Campers are supervised all week by Blue Lake’s staff as well as background checked church volunteers. This helps us make certain that every week of camp has all necessary components to provide a life-changing experience.
