Come Make a Splash! VBS 2018 is quickly approaching!  On July 9-12 kids will learn that life is full of thrills and spills; we may not know what’s around the bend, but God does! At Splash Canyon, kids discover that, on life’s wild ride, Jesus is by our side. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games and make some fun crafts. They will experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, and learn how God is with us, God gives us life, God is faithful, God gives hope, and Jesus is our Savior. Each day will begin with a light supper at 5:30 PM in the Commons followed by worship, crafts, lessons, and activities. Make plans now to attend. To sign up or to volunteer, click here. 



We reserve the right to decline enrollment status if school balances are not paid in full. In accordance with Indiana state law, no records or report cards will be released in any form or transcripts forwarded to new schools until your financial obligations have been met.
