GUMC VBS:  July 8-12, 6:00-8:30 pm

Venture onto an unchartered island where kids survive and thrive.  Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.

Each day at Shipwrecked VBS, kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures.

  • Cast-away Sing & Play
  • Bible Discovery
  • Imagination Station
  • Ship Rec Games
  • Tropical Treats
  • KidVid Cinema
  • Sail Away Sendoff

And for the little ones that belong to our adult volunteers, a special Preschool Tide Pool!

At Shipwrecked, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day—making it easy to apply long after VBS is over.
