Ocean Mission: Exploring God’s Love

Vacation Bible School at Home 2020

Clarkston United Methodist Church has rethought and reformatted our Vacation Bible School this year so that you can have all the materials you need to run it in your own home. And we are ready for you to get started!

This Vacation Bible School is completely flexible and can be done on your own time. You can do all of the activities at once, run it like we would throughout a week, or even spread the activities out over a month! Whatever format works best for you.

As for the usual instruction and music, we have that packaged for you. You get to choose whether you want to receive this through videos on our webpage or a DVD, or written instructions with a music CD. We have really strived to have a variety of options so that you can pick what works best for you.

Along with the instructions and music, we also have your supplies ready to go! In order to get the supplies, all you have to do is register and indicate how you would like to receive the kit.

See what we are providing!

Supply List plus Snacks

If you would like a photo of your work added to the gallery, please message it or email it to us! We would love to see what you have created.

This Vacation Bible School is open to all ages, though it is designed for those older than 3. That means that older children, teenagers, and maybe even adults might also enjoy the activities! We hope that many people enjoy and learn from this year’s Vacation Bible School.

Supplies and snacks are limited, so fill out the registration to reserve your kit and get ready for fun! We would love to have you join us! Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions. Registration Link: https://cutt.ly/CuawRJn

Thank you to everyone who helped make Vacation Bible School happen this year!
