Ready, Set, Go!
It’s a Vacation Bible School like no other!
In a safe, nurturing environment, kids will race from continent to continent uncovering clues and attempting age-appropriate challenges as they fill their scorecards. They’ll discover that no matter where we live, what shade of skin we have, or what language we speak, we are all part of the same race – the human race – and all part of the same family from Adam and Eve.
Together, we will examine the events surrounding the tower of Babel, and learn how God calls people from every tribe and nation through his Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. And that he wants us to share this good news in kindness and love with our neighbors nearby and far away.
