Send your kids on a mountaintop adventure! Open to children pre-K (age 4 by 8/31/2021) through 6th grade. At Rocky Railway VBS, kids discover Jesus’ power can pull them through life’s ups and downs. Rocky Railway 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!
Pickup and drop off will take place at the former St. James the Greater School upper parking lots at 9:00 AM and we will end at 12:00 NOON. Bring your friends and sign up for the railway adventure! Register early so that materials can be ordered for all participants. Registration is only $5.00 per child, along with a food donation (a volunteer will notify you of specific items needed for this year’s theme) that is required on the first day.
If you would like a music CD, there is an additional fee of $5.00 however the album “Rocky Railway VBS Music 2020 (Official)” is available on Spotify. The registration and volunteer form is only available online. Registrations made after the deadline may not receive a t-shirt.
Teens and adults are also invited to participate in the program as full-time or part-time volunteers (including parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents - all are welcome)!
