Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Looking for vacation Bible school in the Shellsburg area? Bring your children to Oak Grove Church, and they will never want to leave!

A summer kids’ event called Rocky Railway VBS will be hosted at Oak Grove Church from July 19 to July 23. At Rocky Railway, kids discover through life’s ups and downs that Jesus’ power pulls us through. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, engage in fun snack-eating experiences, take part in one-of-a-kind Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them to trust Jesus, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Rock Wrap-Up that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time at 7:45pm.
