A Look Ahead!

Vacation Bible School (VBS): Summer 2021

Join us for “Treasured VBS” as we embark on a virtual epic quest through hidden ruins, ancient caves, and dense jungles.

Kids will dig into action-packed, faith-filled adventures and discover God’s greatest treasure isn’t diamonds, gems, or gold–it’s them!!

Online VBS is open to children age 3 through 5th grade and includes a special VBS Fun Box! Videos and materials will be posted daily here on the Grace website and social media pages the week of July 12-16.

Head over here to the VBS main page!
