Vacation Bible School


Nothing creates a buzz in town like our legendary Vacation Bible School!

Forget old Sunday School felt boards and tired crafts. We create interactive experiences that will spark your child’s imagination and enhance their faith journey. With rockin’ music, compelling stories, goofy games, creative crafts, and so much more, your children will have an experience they will never forget! Our Vacation Bible School typically takes place the first full week after the July 4th holiday and is for preschoolers (age 3 by Sept. 1) through students entering 8th grade in the fall. Kids are encouraged to save their coins for our “heavy offering” each year. It’s a contest! Who will win each year’s competition to raise the most money for our mission project?!?


July 10 – 14, 2016, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Get ready to head to the Surf Shack, where kids can Catch the Wave of God’s Amazing Love! Discover how to surf through life with God! Our adventure together will include energizing music, interactive Bible fun, super science, cool crafts, hands-on missions, delicious snacks, great games, and so much more!

VBS is for students entering preschool through 8th grade in the Fall. Open to all students in the Plainfield community (no church membership requirement). Questions? Contact the church office at (815) 436-9651.
