Vacation Bible School

Faith, Fun and Fellowship

VBS runs Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and ends with our closing ceremony on Friday Evening. Children ages 4 through 11 years old enjoy stories, music, and games while learning all about God.

Kids are divided into groups of 10-15 and are led from one activity to another by a team of counselors.

Activities include:

  •  New stories and Bible lessons each day.
  •  Fun arts and crafts related to daily lessons.
  • Short movie clips about our central VBS theme
  •  Lots of fun songs including one especially-catchy tune that everyone sings along to at our closing ceremony.
  • Outdoor play, including a water day with sprinklers, kiddie pools, and water tables.
  • Snacks that vary daily and connect to our central VBS theme.

Volunteers make it happen!

Want to help make VBS a success? Consider volunteering for one of the following positions:

  • Teachers to bring God's Word to life using interactive, hands-on, and creative teaching (we provide the lessons, you deliver them!)
  • Teen and pre-teen counselors (Ages 12 and up) to guide children and assist teachers.
  • Kitchen volunteers to help prepare and deliver snacks.
  • Counselors for music, movies, and outdoor play.
  • Counselors to assist teachers in our Pre-School classroom.

About Vacation Bible School

Our VBS curriculum is developed by Group Publishing, a national provider of learning resources for church ministries. VBS brings Jesus to life through simple lessons, fun crafts, and games that all tie into one single, fun theme.

Kids experience a new them every year. For example, in the summer of 2010, kids at Cross of Glory embarked on a "High Seas Expedition" to experience the deep rolling waters of God's love. This nautical journey featured everything from tall ships, to friendly sailors, and hidden treasures.


VBS usually takes place in July; please check our online calendar for dates. For more information on VBS or other educational programs for children, please call our Church Office at 732-583-1118.
