VBS 2022!

Information

What You Need to Know

Pender Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a week-long program from June 20-24, 2022 from 9:00am-12 noon, where children explore, celebrate, and care for God's good creation! Through worship and drama, Bible study, nature-themed art projects and snacks, active games, songs, arts and crafts, skits, puppet shows and science explorations, children 3.5-12 will discover God's love for all of creation. They were challenged to care for God's world in tangible ways - both during VBS and at home.

Feedback

Thank You!

You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. (Deuteronomy 6:7)

Staff/Pastor-Parish Relations Committee would like to extend a big note of thanks and appreciation to the entire Vacation Bible School (VBS) Ministry team that included our Pender United Methodist Church staff, volunteers, and members from the broader Pender community.  We were blessed with 53 children from our community who participated in VBS from June 20-24th.  Families expressed notes of thanks and appreciation that they loved every part of VBS; each day was a day of fun; they learned so much about God's creation; and our children were loved and accepted fully and completely -- thank you!

It has been wonderful having your child in our VBS program this summer! In our music class, they learned how to read some basic music, and play handbells and handchimes! If your child would be interested in playing bells in a group this next school year, please let me know and if we have enough students sign up, we will start a music club just for them! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Please contact Brian for more information.
