The 2018 VBS theme is "Shipwrecked" "Rescued by Jesus" which will be held nightly on June 11 - 15 from 6:30PM - 8:30PM.  During this year's VBS, the children will adventure onto an uncharted island where children survive and thrive.  Children will leave VBS knowing there is someone bigger than their struggles and stronger than their weaknesses that will carry them through life's storms.  Uncle Jerry is back and will be sure not to disappoint the children in their learning each evening through music, crafts, snacks, and more! 

Children ages 3 years through 6th grade are welcome to attend.  Older children in grades 7 - 12 and adults are encouraged to attend as a volunteer as many hands make more fun!

Questions about how to register your child, volunteer, or donate to this important week for our children should be directed to Judy Willow (570-966-0721) or Pam Pfirman (570-898-9774).
