KIDS: VBS is back for a third year, and open to kids entering Kindergarten through 5th grade (for Fall 2019). Each day includes fun activities, worship, games, snacks, small group time, and crafts. VBS is July 15-19, from 9am until 1pm daily. It will be held at our new church facility at Valley Center (5119 N Valley Center Ave).

LEADERS: If you're a student entering 6th-12th grade (for Fall 2019), college student, or adult, we also need your help! We need counselors/group leader, as well as help with crafts, games/recreation, snacks, audiovisual/tech, behind-the-scenes, security, and much more!
