Summer 2021: While we will not be offering Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer, we are excited to point you towards other summer opportunities for children: Sunday School is on a special summer rotation with a mix of Zoom as well as in-person opportunities at First UMC Church in the Courtyard. Each week we will include information for the upcoming Sunday in our CFM email. Click here to Subscribe.
We celebrate a successful VBS at Home for summer 2020! We sent VBS supplies to over 100 children who are able to enjoy their VBS Boxes filled with craft and science supplies, mission and service opportunities, coloring pages, snacks and more! The VBS volunteers and I are all praying for our VBS families and looking forward to next summer!
Consider making a donation. Your gifts allows our families a low-cost VBS experience each year. Thank you for your support!

VBS at Home 2020 Theme:
Knights of North Castle
North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t what they think it is.
Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will become brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book. 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 Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.
Help kids take up the gauntlet this summer and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God and sharing God’s love in a world that needs it more than ever.
What is VBS?
Vacation Bible School is a one week long, half-day summer program full of fun, music, scripture and stories, science projects, prayer and missions. There is a small fee per child/family. The entire program, from start to finish, is run mostly by the generous hearts of volunteer church members, youth earning their service credits, and parents.
