mornings of june 29-July 3

we've got something new

Have we got a "virtually" awesome experience for you this summer! Summer 2020 may look a little different than we originally planned, but we’re still excited to partner with you to provide you with KIDS BLAST: VIRTUAL VBS. This experience will help your family dive deeper into your faith by putting the FOCUS on God and His amazing plan for us.

HOW Virtual VBS WORKS

We will provide you with materials needed to lead your kids in at-home lessons each day during the week (some materials will be household items that you will already have on-hand). Each morning, we will release the opening video that corresponds to the lesson materials you receive at “AT-HOME SUPPLIES” KIT pick-up. Following the video, a parent or older sibling will lead children in a simple craft activity using items found in your own home. Small Groups (elementary only) will meet for 20 minutes via Zoom at 11am everyday with KIDS BLAST volunteers.
