Every year we host a community Vacation Bible School for children. This high-energy, Christ-centered program is offered annually during the last full week of June. It is our largest children’s ministry event.
VBS 2020: After much prayerful consideration, we decided not to hold VBS in 2020. APC has been blessed with a thriving, joyful, “kid-and-volunteer-FULL” ministry and we did not believe that we could effectively provide this ministry to our children while maintaining “social distancing.”
In 2021, our evening VBS (6:15-8:45 pm) returned! We met nightly during the week of June 21st around the theme of Rocky Railway: Jesus’ power pulls us through! As you can see from the photos, the kids and volunteers alike had a great time being together (outside) and sharing in the love of Jesus and fun of fellowship!
While VBS 2021 may have looked a little different this year, we still had the same purpose of sharing the love of Jesus with our kids! With their Crew Leaders, the kids visited Storytelling, Music, Games/Snack, and Craft stations.
Regardless of your church affiliation/denomination, your children are welcome to join us for a free week of fun, fellowship, and faith.
Contact Maureen Harshman with any questions.
Additional info: Service Component
VBS is provide free of charge to the kids in our communities. There are, however, community service components to our VBS: We collect food for the Allentown Food Pantry and we collect donations for the Good Neighbor Fund. During this time when so many in our community are in great need, we are connected and united in our faith and call to help others. Many use this week as a focal point to teach our children about service and generosity. We will gladly accept your food and monetary donations. Thank you for your support.
We look forward to being together again, raising our voices in praise, giving our minds to learn, and our hearts in service to the One who loves us unconditionally at VBS 2022! “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.” Isaiah 40:31
