The VBS is open to children age 3 up through sixth grade (just completed). Registration is requested to make the first morning easier and to get a count on how many in each family want to attend the church family night at Uncle Bill’s Pumpkin Farm in Grinnell for $3 each.    

The VBS will feature Bible stories, skits, crafts, snacks, recreation and games.  Check out the church website at or stop by the church office for registration forms. 

The VBS is free with an offering taken each day to be divided between a the Girls’ Club Ranch Ministries near Winfield and the Therapeutic Horse Riding Ranch in Texas.
