Registration is now open for Vacation Bible School (VBS)! All children ages four to grade 5 (having just completed grade 5) are invited to register for VBS at the Kirk. VBS take place from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Monday, June 19 through Friday, June 23, at the Kirk. Children will engage in fun, ministry-focused learning where they will be “detectives” looking at the mysteries of the Bible, Jesus’ teachings, and faith. Children will discover clues, engage in music, and play games. Each participant should plan to bring two nut-free snacks and a nut-free lunch.
Children can register for just $25 and all adult volunteers attend for free.
Encourage your children to invite friends who may not attend Kirk! Download a VBS flyer to share!
Please contact Sarah Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
