Vacation Bible School

We create interactive experiences that will spark your child’s imagination and enhance their faith journey. With rockin’ music, compelling stories, goofy games, creative crafts, and so much more, your children will have an experience they will never forget! Our Vacation Bible School typically takes place the first full week after the July 4th holiday and is for preschoolers (age 3 by September 1) through students entering 8th grade in the fall. Kids are encouraged to save their coins for our “heavy offering” each year. It’s a contest! Who will win each year’s competition to raise the most money for our mission project?!?

VBS 2022 Registration Now copy.jpg

Ready to cook up some fun? PUMC’s Food Truck Party VBS invites children and youth ages 3 (by September 1, 2021) through incoming 8th graders (2022-23 school year) to get on a roll with God! It’s going to be the summer's biggest party – together in person again! VBS will be held July 10 to July 14 from 6:30PM to 8:30PM at PUMC.

We will sing with our rockin’ live VBS band, hear amazing stories grounded in scripture, play exciting games, create cool crafts, and learn how Jesus teaches us to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread." These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it's by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met. Your kids' eyes will be opened to the countless ways God provides, loves, and cares for us, and they’ll be invited to join God in providing, loving, and caring for others.

We welcome children of all abilities! If your child needs any accommodations, please indicate that at the time of registration or call the church office at 815-436-9651. Register now!
