The Incredible Race VBS 2019

The Incredible Race VBS 2019


VBS Registration is LIVE! Register your child/children at

It's a Vacation Bible School like no other!

Kids will race from continent to continent uncovering clues and attempting challenges as they fill their score cards.

They'll also 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.

As they examine the events surrounding the tower of Babel, kids will learn that God is calling 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.

Join The Incredible Race Sunday through Thursday, June 9-13 from 6:00-8:15pm and experience God's love for every tribe, language, and nation!

If you are unable to return your bags then, please complete the card attached to each bag, insert it in the bag with the clothes, and drop it off at any Miracle Hill collection location. Miracle Hill will provide the church with gift cards based on the weight of clothing donated so we can use them with our church’s benevolence ministries.

Elementary School to provide food bags called Backpack Blessings for 30-40 needy children. These food items are packaged and discreetly placed in the children’s backpacks on Friday afternoons so they are supplied with meals for the weekend. Food donation signup sheet is located at the Welcome Center today & next Sunday. Sign up is also available in each SS class. You can drop off your donated food at the Fall Carnivalregistration table on Sunday October 29 or placed in bins at the Ministry Center. For more details, please email Lara Cropsey (
