Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a half-day camp that operates from 9am-12:30pm for children 4 years old (by August 31st) through rising 5th graders. There is also a Mini-VBS option for our rising 3s class! This year, VBS will be Monday, June 12 through Thursday, June 15.
Our younger campers learn stories from the Bible through music, recreation, story-telling, and service projects. Mission Kids, our 4th and 5th graders, serve the community through various outreach projects. Mission Kids will travel off-campus.
The non-refundable camp fee includes a t-shirt, camp bag, music, and morning activities. The cost of attending is $50 per child for church members, $75 per child for non-members.
Registration opens on Wednesday, February 1 for MPPC members and Wednesday, February 15 for non-members. Registration will close Wednesday, March 1.
As VBS is run by volunteers, we ask that an adult from each family volunteer a minimum of two days. We are open to creative sharing of this responsibility given new work force realities. We are so appreciative of our volunteers and ask that you consider as many days as your schedule allows. We appreciate and welcome four-day volunteers! We also have volunteer opportunities available prior to the start of VBS that are designed for our full-time working parents. VBS volunteer time is 8:30am-1:00pm Monday-Thursday. Childcare will be provided for children aged 2 and younger on the days that you volunteer. Children in childcare will be in a weekday school classroom with toys and VBS themed enrichment activities. This is a magical week, and we promise you won’t regret being a part of this camp centered on faith, fun, friends, and family.
We look forward to a STELLAR week exploring outer space and helping our children learn to shine Jesus’ light! Get ready to blast off!
“VBS is currently FULL and registration has closed. If you’d like to be added to our waitlist please send an email to our VBS Chairs Lindsey Adams and Tanner Sanders at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the name and ages the children you’d like to be added to the list.”
*Please Note - we are closely monitoring registration numbers and want you to be aware that as we near our maximum capacity there is a chance that we will not be able to confirm a spot for everyone who registers. It is our desire to be able to accommodate everyone in our community who wants to attend VBS this year, however given space constraints and increased interest in our program this may not be a reality. Once we reach maximum capacity we plan to open a waitlist and will strive to communicate as quickly as possible. If refunds need to be made we will work to do that as quickly as possible. Thank you for your interest in 2023's VBS, it's going to be STELLAR!
