Vacation Bible School

VBS 2019 – please save the week of July 22 – 26.  Details to come!

VBS 2018 edition is complete.  We are grateful for the students, teachers, helpers, cookie bakers. . . .all who came together for this great week!  $363.61 has gone to Angel Tree ministry to help the child of an incarcerated parent be able to attend a Christian camp.

God’s Word is our “trail map” -Students pretended to get into a boat with Peter and to walk along with Jesus as He shows love and forgiveness to the people He meets.  Peter often failed, but Jesus forgave him.  Peter even lied and said he didn’t know Jesus!  Now that’s a big failure.  But God’s forgiveness is bigger.  Many times we are just like Peter – failing, sinning, and needing forgiveness.  God wants to forgive and restore us with just as much love as when He forgave Peter.


VBS 2017, July 17 – 21, is now history. Thank you to parents, students, teachers, helpers – all who came together to make it a great week!

Excerpts of a letter from Upper New York Area Bishop Mark J. Webb regarding the VBS offering:
Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Thank you for your generous gift of $342.85. Your donation to the 2017 Storms Advance #474 is a huge accomplishment! Your children’s Ecumenical Vacation Bible School is really living out the mission of our conference by being God’s love to our neighbors in all places.
May God bless your faithfulness in making Disciples for Jesus Christ!
Bishop Mark J. Webb

Using the Rome: Paul and the Underground Church the focus for each day was:

  • God’s Love is a Gift (Romans 6:23)
  •  God’s Love Changes Us (Romans 12:2)
  • God’s Love is Always with Us (Romans 8:38)
  • God’s Love Saves Us (Romans 5:8)
  • God’s Love is Worth Sharing (Romans 1:16)
