Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Vacation Bible School is offered each summer, and consists of a week-long program of religious education employing Bible stories, religious song, arts & crafts and skits. VBS is aimed for elementary school-aged children.

For the past nine years, St. John’s Lutheran Church and St. Matthew Presbyterian Church have partnered to provide VBS to their parishioners. Beginning in 2017, St. John’s also began offering an “All Ages” VBS as well.

Registration for both VBS usually occurs in late June, with registration beginning in April or May. Check back for more information regarding our upcoming VBS.
