United Presbyterian Church invites you to join us for VBS 2021
At Knights of North Castle VBS, your children will enjoy an interactive, energizing, Bible-based good time as they go on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. They will become Knights and discover how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives. This years VBS will be held Monday, August 16th to Friday, August 20th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM each night. All children Pre K through middle school are invited to attend, High Schoolers are welcome as helpers.
United Presbyterian Church invites children to explore how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session with opening assembly time. They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor — the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation — at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God. Knights will expand on what they’ve discovered by participating in a variety of activities: making their own art projects at the Craft Station, singing new songs at the Music Station, exploring the wonders of creation at the Science Station, playing games at the Recreation station, and enjoying tasty treats at the Snack Station.
Each year during Vacation Bible School we participate in a mission project. This year's mission project will be a Sock Drive. Each night in the United States, an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. We want to show our kids that even a small act of love, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.
