Hero Hotline: Called Together to Serve God

During our VBS program, we will dive into the inspiring stories of supporting Bible Heroes from the Old and New Testaments. Together, we’ll discover how these heroes work in harmony to bring peace, uplift one another, and share the incredible story of God’s boundless love with the entire world.

Through music, drama, storytelling, games, arts and crafts, science experiments, and delicious snacks, children will have the opportunity to experience these captivating stories firsthand. They will learn that heroes are called to Follow Jesus, Help Others, Work Together, Listen to God, and Show Grace! But the adventure doesn’t stop there – children will also be encouraged to answer this call in every aspect of their lives, not just during VBS but also at church, at home, and beyond.
