VBS 2023 is complete and by all measures a rousing success!  Thanks to all who volunteered, donated, or in any way contributed to this wonderful week!

Operation Restoration: Mending God's World

This VBS invites kids to be menders in God’s world. As they make connections between Bible stories and mending actions, they’ll discover simple ways to live out faith in daily life. Everyone at Operation Restoration explores language and practices to mend God’s world.

Each day at Operation Restoration features a theme word, Bible story, and several activities that explore what it means to be a mender in God’s world. Children will be assigned by grade/age to a small group. As a small group they will travel around outside and inside for various activities including story time, snack, music, crafts, science nature, service and recreation.
