VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL – JULY 12-15, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
At G-Force Adventure Park, we will discover an interactive, energizing, Bible-based program that will give the children an opportunity to experience God’s love in action. We will become Navigators and explore how to serve God and others with active love. After a high-energy opening assembly at the G-Force Zone, Navigators make their way to the Scripture Zone for a Bible story. The children will expand on what they’ve discovered by participating in a variety of activities: art projects at the Craft Zone, new music at the Music Zone, science activities at Science Zone, and recreational activities at the Recreation Zone.
