First Church of Christ in West Hartford is excited to offer a week long vacation Bible school experience for children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. Middle school students, 6th-8th graders, are invited to join us as Crew Leaders. High school students, grades 9th-12th are invited to join us as Station Leaders.
Each day, from 9:00am - 12:00pm, kids participate in small, mixed age groups, called Crews, and discover not only that God made them the way they are, but for a purpose too! Shipwrecked is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency fun gizmos, team building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids to discover evidence of God in everyday life – something we call God Sightings.
A big focus of our VBS week is mission. This year, Operation Kid to Kid is partnering with World Vision. Kids will collect donations in special seed packets. The proceeds of their collection will go towards providing drought tolerant fruit and vegetable seeds for Haitian families. The donations will also support education programs for farmers on updated farming techniques.
