Grace United Methodist Church Vacation Bible School

To Mars and Beyond

Sunday, June 16 through Thursday, June 20

5:15 pm to 7:45 pm

For ages 3 years old (and using the potty)

through 5th grade during the 2018-19 school year

Join us for an out of this world adventure with God!  We will learn the amazing stories of Daniel and the Lions’ Den, Queen Esther, The Good Samaritan, Jesus healing the Lepers, and the Walk to Emmaus. As we explore we will learn how to go beyond with Faith, Boldness, Kindness, Thankfulness, and Hope! Other stations along our space mission will include Bible stories, music, science and crafts. Our mission focus will be on raising money to support Heifer International.

We start with dinner for our rafters and their families at 5:15 p.m. There is no cost, but please register in advance so that we can have plenty of supplies and volunteers ready.

VBS Volunteers Needed

There are a variety of opportunities for adults to share their faith during Vacation Bible School.  We need Adventure Guides to take small groups of children to each activity, a puppeteer for our adorable puppet Romper, and folks to work in the kitchen making and serving meals, to mention a few of the roles which need to be filled.  Please contact Coreen Witke at or 515-255-6400, ext. 230 to learn more about this adventure!
