2014 Vacation Bible School is Here! (6/23/14)

Are you ready for an adventure to escape through the wilderness?  After months of planning, our Vacation Bible School week is nearly upon us! 

The Wilderness Escape is here!


VBS starts on Monday June 23.


Vacation Bible School will be held during the week of June 23-27, in the EVENINGS!  And the best part… it starts out with Dinner.  So you can make this a family event.

Here’s the nightly schedule:

  • 5:00 PM-  Dinner in the Fellowship Hall (free for all who show up!)
  • ~ 6:00 PM-  A time of music and celebration in the sanctuary kicks things off.
  • ~ 6:15 PM-  Begin the escape!  Kids break up into their “tribes” (classes)
  • ~ 7:45 PM- Regroup in the sanctuary to wrap up the evening
  • 8:00 PM- Escape for home… 

The theme this year is “Wilderness Escape:  Where God Guides and Provides” by Group.  The classes will be for kids from Nursery through 5th grade (the grade just completed).  They will learn all about Moses through games, several interactive activities, cool crafts, and songs.

The classes through 4th grade will visit several “shops” around the church building which will show them how the Isrealites lived during their time journeying through the wilderness to the promised land.  They will see how God provided for the Israelites and how God led them through the wilderness to the Promised Land.

The 5th graders will meet at the Taylors’ pool for their lessons and fun (what else would you do at a pool?!?).  Transportation between the Taylors’ and the church will be provided.


If you want to attend the dinner, please sign up on the sheet in the narthex so we can plan for the right amount of food.

      Thank you so much for your interest in our Vacation Bible School. We’re really excited about it this year!

      This year we’re trying something a bit different by providing online registration (of course you can still register the “old fashioned way” by filling out the form in church). But to sign up for this year’s VBS, go to: https://www.groupvbspro.com/vbs/hl/pumc
      and follow the directions.

      Further details about our VBS will soon be posted on our church website. Please check back often.

      If you have any questions, please feel free to drop an email to VBS@PitmanUMC.org.

      Thanks again!!!
