VBS 2023!

Attention kids and families! Join us May 30-June 2 for FMC's annual vacation Bible School!

This year our theme is entitle Changemakers lab. Changemakers Lab is an interactive Vacation Bible School where children learn that everyone can make a difference in the world!

The five Bible stories in this curriculum explore examples of people who experienced and brought about change in the world around them. Children will meet Nicodemus, five friends on their way to meet Jesus, people from the early church, Peter and Cornelius, and the prophet Isiah. These people provide a model for asking hard questions, working together to solve problems, caring for all people, reaching across differences, and imagining a new world.

The kid's will have an opportunity to share music and present what they learned throughout the week in Sunday June 4! Be sure to sign up today!
