VBS

STS Students, this summer of 2017 we are focusing on SERVICE. We want to follow Christ's direction of reaching out and making disciples in all our spheres, "Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth." Our "Jerusalem" is our church's Vacation Bible School! We have an amazing opportunity to serve our church and immediate community as recreation leaders, classroom teachers, and so much more. 

Our GREAT Adventure begins June 12, 2017 at The Church of The Apostles, and this year’s theme investigates God’s irresistible call in the lives of His children. Life is an adventure, but we will see together that God is calling His people to a GREAT ADVENTURE—a call to Himself. Our young explorers will go on a five-day expedition that will investigate stories of men and women of faith whose lives have proven God’s irresistible call to His own forever-family and His Kingdom.
