Vacation Bible School 2017

Summer is around the corner, and as you consider plans and activities for your kiddos, don’t forget to look into Vacation Bible School (VBS)! Each program offers an experience complete with crafts, activities, friends and valuable lessons.

VBS is offered at different times and locations throughout Knoxville, and this year’s round-up sounds so fun, it will be hard to choose which to attend!  

Before revealing the much-anticipated Vacation Bible School round-up, here’s a little VBS humor for you: My 4-year-old son came home from his first-ever VBS with the craft pictured below. He proudly exclaimed:

“Rice died on this for us!”
