Vacation Bible School 2023

Stellar VBS:
This summer we will launch kids on a cosmic quest where they’ll have a blast shining Jesus’ light to the world. Stellar rockets kids on an out-of-this-world adventure that’s light years of faith-building fun. This is the BEST way to spend a week in the summer… Children, Youth & Adults will be Growing in their Faith, & Sharing God’s Love to Change Our World!

Take a 5 day journey with Powell UMC Vacation Bible School to allow your child’s world to be transformed! We will explore God’s Word, grow in friendships with each other and with Christ! The Bible stories come to life through teaching, exploring and understanding as to how God is talking to us through scripture today in a fun, relevant and exciting way!
 
Meet the Bible Buddies, meet children going through challenges in their life in KidVid, discover in Imagination Station, praise in music, play in recreation, meet friends and meet Jesus at VBS!
 
This is a magical week where children engage, learn and build their faith! Sign your child up today… sign yourself or a youth up to volunteer and allow yourself or youth to be transformed too!
 
Together… we will Shine Jesus’ Light!

MISSIONS:
Operation Kid-to-Kid Mission Project:
This year we will turn dollars into discipleship! Across the globe, millions of people lack the comfort and hope that come from reading God’s Word in their own language. In fact, in some places, even pastors do not have a Bible in their own language. That is where our VBS program comes in!
 
Operation Kid-to-Kid is a partnership between World Vision and Group Publishing VBS programs seeking more than 2 million Bibles to us in discipleship ministries in African nations, Latin America, and the Middle East. These scriptures are not simply handed out – they are used in Bible clubs, VBS programs, parenting classes, and Sunday schools. Kids and adults discover how to read and apply the truth in God’s Word. That is where we can shine!
 
A $12.00 donation provides a language – appropriate Bible for 5 people, plus connects recipients with discipleship opportunities that help them grow in faith!
Powell UMC Vacation Bible School Mission Goal: $1,500.00
This year we will have a competition between the girls and the boys, depending on who wins… something will happen to either Pastor Justin or Ms. Rebecca!
Girls… keep Ms. Rebecca safe and donate your coins & dollars! Boy… keep Pastor Justin safe and donate your coins & dollars! Either way… the children win by us raising lots of money to give Bibles to children across the world!
 
 
 
Tangible Mission Items to Donate:
We will also be collecting actual school supplies! We are asking for backpacks, pencils, crayons, glue, markers, paper, or anything that other children need for their school! These School Supplies will be given to PIN (People In Need) in Delaware County.
 
Please make checks out to PUMC and on the Memo line note: VBS Missions
