Babylon vbs

Survivor: Babylon VBS- Daniel's Courage in Captivity (A Holy Land Adventure)

July 15th - July 19th, 2018

$0 - $20

Step back in time for this Holy Land Adventure week as we travel to Babylon without even leaving Dripping Springs, exploring Daniel’s adventures as a captive in a foreign land. Each day, you can become part of history as you see,
hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in Babylon! You’ll experience the Bible-times Marketplace shops, visit Daniel, take part in teamwork-building games, sing and dance to lively Bible songs, join in hands-on mission helping both kids here and across the world, and sample tasty tidbits as you discover more about Daniel’s adventures in Babylon. These experiences make God’s Word come alive with new meaning for all who participate! Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings.

Our dates are July 15-19 and we are trying something a little different this year. We are kicking off with a special Family Fun Night on Sunday July 15 from 4:30-7:30pm where the whole family can come be immersed in the Babylon Holy Land Adventure together and will include dinner and an exotic petting zoo. Then the kids participating and our youth and adults that are serving will continue the adventure Monday-Thursday 9am- Noon.

VBS is offered to all children entering Pre-K (4 years) through 6th grade in the Fall of 2018.

The Little Lions care area & activities are available for the children ages 0-3 years old of the adults serving at VBS.

Space is limited!

There is a small fee this year of $20/ child with a $50 family maximum. Fees will be waived for the children or grandchildren of adults who serve. There are also scholarships or financial assistance available upon request. You can contact cheldstab@dsumc.org for more information.

We need LOTS of help to prepare for & host over 300 children. How will you serve God’s children? Adults & Youth (entering 7th-12th grade) can register to serve in many ways- for one day or all week.

We will be taking donations- monetary or material. Be sure to ask about our donation list!

Check back frequently as more information will be available the closer we get.
