Stellar vbs was amazing! 

At Stellar, kids discovered how they can shine Jesus’ love and hope in everyday life: 

  • When life feels dark
  • When people don't get along
  • When good things happen, and
  • When people are sad

Kids participated in memorable Bible-learning activities, sang (and danced!) to catchy songs, played teamwork-building games, and experienced one-of-a-kind Bible Adventures.  Plus, kids learned to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concluded with a Cosmic Closing that got everyone involved in living what they learned.
