looking for a summer camp experience that's out of this world? 

Look no further! Sign your child up for this free, half-day Vacation Bible School! 

At Stellar, kids discover how they can shine Jesus’ love and hope in everyday life! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, experience one-of-a-kind Bible Adventures, and collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of Jesus’ light.  Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Cosmic Closing that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. 

The Camp, for ages 4 - 11, will run from Monday, July 10th until Friday, July 14th, from 9am - 12pm. On the Sunday following camp, we invite the whole family to join us for a special VBS Sunday Service, where the kids. along with Rev. Daniel, will lead worship and show us what they've learned!
