Program Information

Preschool through Grade 4 VBS

Life is Wild! God is Good!

Each day at Roar VBS children in small groups will explore four different stations - Imagination Station, Games, KidVid Cinema and Bible Discovery. Each station engages the child differently to deepen their understanding of the daily Bible point. In addition, the children gather together for the fun-filled Sing & Play.

Each day children will also collect Bible Buddies to take home on Friday. Each Bible Buddy includes the special Bible verse for the day.

Cost: $40.00 (includes t-shirt, materials and snack) – scholarships are available.
