shipwrecked vbs 2018


at Hope Community Church

June 25 - 29 // 9:00-11:45 a.m.

Sail away with us and venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Shipwrecked VBS will anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.

All week long, our Imagination Station will allow kids to dig into surprising and authentic faith discoveries with Sciency-Fun Gizmos. KidVid Cinema will share stories of real kids who are living out their faith in cool ways. All of this, along with high-energy games, fun Bible songs, and tasty treats, will keep everyone on the move. Kids will leave knowing what it means that Jesus rescues.


Pre-registration is now open!

Maker Fun Factory VBS at Hope is open to kids age 3 through 5th grade. Sign up today!

Come ashore at Shipwrecked VBS!

Each day, kids travel in age-appropriate small groups, called Crews, to different stations where they will build, explore and discover that Jesus rescues! At Shipwrecked VBS, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day — making it easy to apply long after VBS is over. Featuring fun Bible Memory Buddies too!
