VBS 2018 Registration for Children

Register your children to come to this year’s Vacation Bible School, June 10-14, 5:00-8:00 PM.  At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms and is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see,hear,touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see
evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!

He Uses It All - BIG and small!

A glimpse inside what’s going on in the lives of those at FBC. How God is working in us and through us as we intentionally look for His grace in our lives each day.  And then intentionally showing His love to those around us….whether it’s in a different country or right here in our community.  He uses it all-BIG and small! (There will be a wide variety of members and those in the community sharing bits of their stories!
