Vacation Bible School


Every Summer, children ages 3 through 10 years old are invited to participate 
in a wonderful week of Bible stories, crafts, music, mission, recreation 
and snacks. 

Look for Vacation Bible School theme and registration details closer to 
Summer 2016. Below is general information about our VBS program.

Limestone Church invites all children from the wider community, as 
well as from the church, to participate in Vacation Bible School.

The basic message of our VBS is one of love, caring, openness and acceptance. We donít believe in scaring kids into faith. We teach 
children to know Godís love, to love God and to love their neighbors. We 
trust that children from other churches or from no church background will 
feel comfortable in the positive, loving and accepting environment we seek 
to create. 

Youth and adult volunteers are encouraged to sign up as teachers and helpers. If you are 11 years or older, you may volunteer.
