Vacation Bible School

Virtual Vacation Bible School

July 13 – 17 & 20 – 24, 2020

With COVID-19 derailing countless plans, routines, and expectations, we need this year’s Bible Points and message from ROCKY RAILWAY more than ever!

This summer’s “train” event will put us on track for trusting Jesus! At Rocky Railway we will explore Jesus’ power and how we can trust Jesus to pull us through.

Please read the letter from our Director of Christian Education.

How VBS Will Work:

  • An hour or so video will be released on the church’s Facebook page each day July 13-17 and 20-24
  • A text message will be sent through the Remind App to let you know the video is ready for viewing. To register for this handy and convenient service, text the number 81010, then in the message, type @roarvb. You DO NOT need to download the app, it will come as a text. This is the best way to communicate with everyone during the weeks of VBS.
  • We are encouraging FAMILY PARTICIPATION with the videos
  • Registration is still required see links above. This will ensure we have the correct amount of gizmos, crafts, and other materials you will need at home.
  • Youth are welcome to participate and may receive the gizmos, crafts, and other materials as well.
  • Final deadline for registration is June 24. Be aware that any registration turned in after this deadline will not guarantee that the participants will receive materials that will be used during VBS.
