vacation bible school

july 9-13, 2023

5:30-8:30PM each night

Join us for an adventure of Twist and Turns this summer as we explore the life of Peter and how even in those crazy, and unexpected moments, that Jesus is still with us.


What is vbs?

the best week ever!

The short answer to this question is simple: The greatest week your child will have this summer. 

VBS is a week focused for kids, 4 years old thru High School, to have the best time of their summer as we explore Jesus through Recreation, Music, Crafts, Bible Lessons, and so much more.

"MOUNTAIN dew and sugar mixed together to create a hurricane of fun" - a kid, probably

Each night, Kids check-in and head over to their crew base. Once it's time, their crew heads over to Opening Rally with high-energy worship and captivating videos.

After Opening Rally, crews spend time rotating from station to station as they experience relevant Bible Stories, exciting Mission endeavors, high-energy Music, crazy fun Crafts, delicious meals and snacks, action-packed Games, and more.

Each night, the crews gather together for Closing Rally and we always have something we are up to at Closing Rally. You never know, there might be a glow party or two.

Kids are then dismissed to their parent through monitored a check-out process.


Take a look around and have your questions answered. If you still have questions, reach out and let us know. We will add more details as we get closer to VBS.

  • We strive to provide a secure and safe environment for all kids. Each child must be checked-in and checked-out by an approved adult. Older siblings or adults, not on the approved check-out list, will not be able to check-out your child. 

    Check-In and Check-Out takes place in the Lobby of our Main Building each night starting at 5:15PM.

  • We take the safety and security of each child very seriously. Our Safety Team is on site the entire week of Vacation Bible School. We also make sure that Crew Leaders and Rotation Leaders are aware of medical needs and allergies for each child.

  • Your child will be provided dinner during one of their rotations throughout the evening. If your child needs to eat before 6:00PM, we encourage you to make sure they have a light snack before they arrive on campus. They will also be given a snack as they are checked-out each evening.

  • We will be collecting an offering each night at VBS. We encourage all kids, who are able, to participate no matter how small or large the gift they are able to give may be. We believe all gifts matter to God. This year, our offerings will go towards two missionaries that we support at Morningside: The Greenes and the Blackabys. Students will be teamed up on either "Team Greene" or "Team Blackaby" and their offering will go towards supporting that missionary family. At the end of the week, we will celebrate all God does through the offerings and have some fun too.

  • VBS at Morningside is open to kids ages 4 years old through High School. All students must be potty trained and able to communicate their needs. If you have any questions, please let us know.
