Vacation Bible School

June 11-15, 2018  ·  9:00am – 12:00pm daily

Vacation Bible School at Grace is a highlight of our summer! Whether you’ve been at Grace for years, or this is your first time meeting us, your kids are most welcome at VBS. We’ve got classes for 3-year-olds through 5th graders, and there are opportunities to volunteer for all ages. More than 130 kids from across the south metro join us every year.

Vacation Bible School is a fun way to keep your family connected to a community of faith during the oft-busy summer months. VBS features games, large group gatherings with original theme-specific songs, small groups (called crews) with kids their age and a dynamic volunteer leader, themed snacks, videos, crafts, and more.

This year’s theme is Shipwrecked: Rescued By Jesus. You can learn more about the theme from Group Publishing here. Watch the video below to get a taste of what this week will be like!

Register for VBS

We’d love to have your family join us for VBS this year. No registrations or crew changes will be taken after Sun. June 3. Registrations are accepted based on the number of supplies ordered. On the registration form, you’ll find a “crew buddy” line, where you can place the name of another child that your child would like to be in the same group with. Children must be the same age level to be put in the same crew. Preschoolers must be 3 years old by June 11 and potty trained. Elementary students should register for the grade they attended 2017-18.

Church Use of Photographs

On occasion, the church may use group photographs of youth in the monthly newsletter, on the church website, social media or as part of a display in the atrium; the youth are not identified by name. If you have concerns about photographs possibly being used in this way, please contact the office.

Safe Child Policy

Our safe church policy includes screening volunteers who work directly with youth, requiring written applications of everyone. Formal background checks will be required of confirmation guides/parents who chaperone overnight retreats, and those who drive youth to events.

Did You Know?

Did you know our cool decorations are passed on to other churches doing the same VBS later in the summer? We share expenses and talents with Grace United Methodist of Burnsville, Farmington Lutheran and Worldwide Lighthouse in Rosemount.
