VBS 2018 is going to be our best year yet!
July 15-19, 2018
Kids will venture onto an uncharted island where they will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.
FBC invites all sailors, big and small, to join us for an awesome adventure you won’t want to miss! This year’s VBS runs from Sunday, July 15th-Thursday, July 19th, 5:45-8pm each night. Dinner will be provided PRIOR to VBS Monday-Thursday from 5-5:30pm, with the last meal being served at 5:30. No food will be provided on Sunday.
VBS participants must be at least age 3 by July 1 and potty-trained. There will be special activities each night for those entering the 6th-8th grades as well.
Please take the time to preregister so that we can be prepared with supplies and food. Be sure to note any allergies your child has.
Online registration is now closed. Please arrive early to register at the front table.
Castaway Sing & Play
Gear up for the day’s adventure by singing fun songs and meeting our special guest!
Kids experience each Bible story with all five senses, and then circle up with crews for thought-provoking discussions.
KidVid Cinema & Missions
Kids watch films about real kids in the real world living out their faith in really cool ways reminding all of them that no matter what happens, God’s power will pull them through. Kids will also get to learn about the families in Guatemala that we are helping!
This year, kids will learn real-life survival skills!
Ship Rec Games
Kids run, jump, and even splash through games that connect with the daily Bible Point. This year’s games will take place on a ship!
Sail Away Sendoff
Each day wraps up at SailAway Sendoff. Crews gather for loads of fun-filled, surprising, audience-involving activities and object lessons that reinforce the daily Bible Point.
Meaningful Missions: Each year, we partner with our very own Kathy Jacobs & Pure Joy Missions to provide shoes and socks to over 100 children in Guatemala! Every year, we buy new shoes for these kiddos to keep their feet protected!
Thanks to the help of many, this project became a reality! Check out some photos of the children receiving their new shoes! Thank you so much for your generosity!
