Vacation Bible School

Backyard VBS | July 20-23 | 9-11 AM

Are you brave, strong, fearless?  Then we need you! This year we are taking our Knights of the North Castle VBS to homes and backyards all over town to provide kids with an amazing week in a smaller setting. We need Castle Guides to join us on our quest to put on the best VBS yet. What does a Castle Guide do? Castle Guides will be responsible for providing or procuring a space, leading activities, and arranging snacks. The church will be supplying each backyard VBS with a box of supplies and digital resources to make your VBS a success. VBS will be held July 20-23 from 9-11am.  Each morning will start with a live-stream opening assembly, and then backyard knights will work their way through lessons and activities as they gather the armor of God.  If you are ready to get started, here are some questions to think through:

The mission of VBS has been a part of churches since the late 1800’s and continues to be one of the biggest summer outreaches offered.  Churches have found a way to host Vacation Bible schools through wars, recessions, and yes, even pandemics. So here is our challenge: every year our Vacation Bible School reaches more than 400 children in our area to teach them about the love of God in a fun and exciting way.  To achieve that this year, we will need at least 30 backyard VBS’s going on at once! It is a big challenge, but if anyone can do it, it is First UMC Rockwall. Please consider where your place is in the ministry of Vacation Bible School. If you are ready to sign up, click here:
