Vacation Bible School


A summer kids’ event known as Vacation Bible School will be hosted at Boonton United Methodist Church from June 27 to July 1, 2016.  Each year has a different theme.   The kids enjoyed “Kingdom Rocks” in 2014 and “Weird Animals” in 2015.  2016’s Theme is “Everest Conquering Challenges with God’s Mighty Power”

Vacation Bible School

Last year the theme is “Weird Animals”.  God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures…including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd—nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus.  Kids will embark on an icy expedition and learn about overcoming life’s challenges through God’s mighty power through participation in memorable activities such as:

  • Singing catchy songs
  • Teamwork/building games
  • Make and dig into yummy treats
  • Experience epic Bible Adventures
  • Test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos
  • Craft activities

Vacation Bible School is for kids from 3 yrs. old (potty trained) to 12 yrs. old and runs from 9am to 12pm each day. There is no cost for this camp, we just ask for a donation  for our Loaves and Fishes Community food pantry.

We will again coordinate efforts with St. John’s Episcopal and Boonton’s First Presbyterian church so children can experience 3 weeks of vacation bible school fun   from June 27 – mid July.
