Experience the Ride of a Lifetime with God and learn that Jesus is with us all the time, even in rough water rapids. Along the river, we’ll discover that life with God is an adventure full of wonder and surprise, and that we can trust God to be with us through anything.  There will be music, dancing, crafts, games, snacks and a whole lot of fun! King Avenue Kids are welcome to invite friends to VBS! Everyone must be registered and have an active account in REALM. Please see Erin Kendall with questions or for more information.   *Kids Grade 4-12 are invited to be youth assistants for VBS.
