What will my child do during VBS?

Each night begins with the opening session and music.  From there, children are split out into groups (based on the grade they just completed) and participate in the following rotations:

  • Story - where we learn about how everyday people are often seen as heroic in the eyes of God.
  • Craft - where we make something fun to remind us to act as heroes in our lives.
  • Recreation - where we burn off some energy and join together in activities that help us build new friendships.
We don't go to church, is that okay?

Yes.  Vacation Bible School is a great way to learn more about Jesus all wrapped up in a series of fun activities.  When the week ends we want you and your child to know how much Jesus loves and that you are always welcome at Dublin United Methodist Church.

We go to another church, can my child still attend?

Absolutely!  Vacation Bible School is a great way to learn more about Jesus regardless of the church  you attend.  We encourage you to register your child today so they can start getting excited about everything VBS has to offer!

I want my child to attend, but I don't drive, is transportation provided?

We want VBS to be available to as many children as possible.  We ask that you email the VBS planning team at children@dublinumc.com or call the church at 540-674-5128 and we'll see what we can do!
