As the school year comes to a close and summer activities ramp up, we encourage you to consider Vacation Bible School (VBS). This long running summer program is available in many churches and Emmanuel is no exception. In fact, VBS is one of the things we do best. At Emmanuel, kids and families are important. We believe that introducing kids to Christ as early and frequently as we can sets them up for a lifetime of following Him. It also teaches them while they are young how to deal with disappointment, heartache and loss and that Jesus walks with them through all of it. Our desire is to minister to families and come alongside parents as they raise their kids to pursue Christ.
Each year, hundreds of children from around the city join us each morning for a week of high-energy fun led by over one hundred top quality leaders, teachers and assistants. Our top priorities for the week are teaching children who Jesus is, why He came and how they can spend eternity in Heaven with Him.
The theme this year is Galactic Starveyors….Discovering the God of the Universe. As kids search the visible to discover the invisible, they will discover that the God who created everything there is wants a relationship with them! Kids will learn that God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we would break from the beginning.
We would love to have the children in your life take part in this year’s VBS. Round up your sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and neighbors! We offer classes for 4-year-olds through incoming 5th graders. Please note that 4-year-olds must be potty-trained and be 4 on or before September 10, 2017.
