Vacation Bible School 2017

Friday, February 17, 2017 · Children, Events, Home Page

Make plans to join us for Hero Central Vacation Bible School from June 26-30 from 8:45am-noon. We will participate in awesome adventures alongside some of our favorite Bible heroes and discover the qualities that make us truly heroic.

Children who have completed VPK through fifth grade are invited as participants. Students who have completed sixth grade and above are invited to spend the week helping our younger friends as a Super Hero (also known as a volunteer). If their school permits, youth Super Heroes may be eligible to earn Community Service hours while having fun serving the Lord. Adult Super Heroes are an important part of our adventure – so YOU are needed, too!

Registration for participants and volunteers will open on our website March 18. The cost is just $25/child (with a maximum of $50/per family). You won’t want to wait until the last minute to sign up – classes can fill up quickly. Contact Cristi Moore ( or Molly McEntire ( with questions today!


Join us for a special intergenerational faith formation event as we explore how to make Lent a powerful and meaningful season for all generations. Register here.

A new discussion group is forming to support one another in doing the work of passing on the faith to our children. Join us for weeks of discussion and application as we build families of faith this season of Lent. This discussion group will compliment weekly family faith activities across age ranges that are outlined in the book Passing It On by Kara Lassen Oliver (available in Our Giving Tree Bookstore). Sunday evenings, 5:15-6:30 on March 5, 12, 26 and April 2. Register here.
