An annual fun-filled and highly energetic week in early Summer. VBS 2018 is open to children age 4 years – 5th grade, and runs from 6/4–6/8. This year’s theme is “Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus.” This week of fun is a great way to share Christ’s message! Think of a friend or neighbor you can invite and bring them along!
Children are invited to come to the front during the 9:30am and/or 10:50am Sunday morning worship services for the Children’s Message, and then go to their Sunday School classes. Parents may then pick-up their children following worship in the Education Building. In addition to Sunday School, children may serve as Acolytes or Liturgists during Sunday morning worship, and/or may participate in the GCUMC Children’s Music Program by singing or playing handbells.
