Vacation Bible School


Our 2019 VBS theme will be “Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus” and is scheduled for June 24 – 28 from 9 AM – 12 PM.  More information to follow shortly!

A summer kids’ event known as Vacation Bible School was hosted at Boonton United Methodist Church from June 24 to June 28, 2018.  Each year has a different theme.

2019 the theme is “Shipwrecked – Saved by Jesus.  Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms. 

Vacation Bible School

2019 Participants embarked on an adventure on the high seas and a castaway island – Where no matter what life throws your way – Jesus can carry you through. Curious kids became hands-on inventors who discovered they’re lovingly crafted by God and sparked creativity with interactive decoration and experiences throughout the week 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 coordinate efforts with Rockaway Valley United Methodist and Montville United Methodist churches so children throughout the area can experience a great send off to their summer vacation.
