Vacation Bible School - 2019

Sunday, June 23 - Friday, June 28

Vacation Bible School is about making friends, playing games, singing songs, painting pictures, sharing snacks, helping others and sealing God's story in our hearts. What a joyful way to add our own stories to the faith family tree!

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. You are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you." (Isaiah 43:1-4)

Join us for a week-long summer adventure as we experience the powerful love of God and the joy of being a child of the promise!

45D VBS - Our oldest VBS kids, rising 5th and 6th graders, deepen friendships and faith as they engage in side-by-side mission activities. Projects include building a ramp with SAWs ministry, sewing puppy pillows for Riley hospital with our Monday Sew-ers, creating art alongside our special friends from Nobel, and running a lemonade stand to benefit students in Kenya.

Questions: contact Rev. Caroline Dennis, at (317) 253-6461 or CDennis@SecondChurch.org.

Volunteer for VBS

Register to Volunteer

VBS volunteers range from rising 7th grade to mid-nineties! There is a job for everyone, from classroom teachers to technology assistants, snack preparers to craft creators. We hope you can volunteer with us all five days but we welcome your help on as many days as you may be available. The gift of your time and creative energy will plant seeds of faith that will grow though the life of a child (and your own!).

VBS Volunteers are asked to commit to attend one VBS Volunteer Orientation & Teacher Training Session (6/13 or 6/20), spend 2 hours on Classroom Setup and Decorating (6/22), and stay for Clean-up Friday afternoon (6/28). 

PLEASE NOTE: In addition to registration, all NEW Volunteers need to complete the Second Presbyterian Church Volunteer Application Form and Background Check. Find a link to this form in your registration confirmation email. Previous volunteers will be notified if a new background check is needed.

After registering to volunteer, you will be sent a link to Sign-Up Genius to request your specific assignments.
