After the craft glue dries and the snacks are just crumbs, the lasting treasure is that children leave knowing their need for Jesus as the REAL Savior.
RBP’s Cowabunga Farm

Ocean Commotion from Answers in Genesis
Every day, our kids are challenged to stand for God in their schools, among their friends, in our culture…no matter what. And they’re bombarded with the lie that God’s Word isn’t true when it talks about earthly things (rocks, fossils), so it can’t be trusted to tell the truth about spiritual things. Prepare for a boatload of excitement at Ocean Commotion, VBS for 2016!
Treehouse from Bentwood-Benson
Join Jeff Slaughter at the VBS TreeHouse for an action-packed adventure through the Bible!
