Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a ministry outreach of SJN Church. Its sole purpose is to incorporate themed activities that entertain kids with the opportunity to learn about God. VBS is an easy way to get kids involved in church while providing the opportunity to meet disciples of St. John.

Church membership is not required to participate.

VBS is usually held four consecutive weekday evenings (M-Th) within a few weeks of the end of the SJN School year and runs from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. A light meal is served and then the FUN begins!

VBS leaders and support staff are church and school staff as well as church members volunteering their time.

A typical evening at VBS will include:

  • A light meal
  • Christ-centered themes
  • Prayer
  • Bible stories
  • Arts and crafts
  • Games
  • Songs
  • Character-building activities

Preschoolers up to children entering the 6th grade are welcome.


  • Children learn about Jesus and the salvation won by Him for all people.
  • Life lessons help every child learn how to be a friend to others and emulate Christ in their lives.
  • Activities are centered on teaching kids about Jesus by combining fun and learning without the formality of a Sunday service.
  • You don't have to be a church member to attend VBS.
