What is “Mission Minded” Vacation Bible School?

Mission minded Vacation Bible School is designed with the intention of teaching children about the importance of Christians to be in service to others. Below are some important questions that will be discussed with the children.

  • Who do you serve?
  • How do you serve?
  • Why serve?

Children may bring an offering each night to Summer Bible School if they choose. Our offering will be given to the Hunger program at the Society of St Andrews. In addition, the children will be putting together Snack Bags to be distributed to the Parkview Community Mission, and another service project TBA later.

The activities the children will be involved in will include music, Bible stories, crafts, service projects, and recreation.

What is a snack supper?

A supper (no charge) will be served each evening from 5:15 to 6:00. Parents, siblings, Vacation Bible School children, and staff are encouraged to attend. A light snack will be served during the VBS program. If you are coming to the supper, please enter FHUMC Fellowship Hall at the door closest to the children’s playground.


For the safety of your children at Summer Bible School, it will be necessary for parents to come into the church each night at 8 pm to pick up your children. They will not be dismissed until a parent or a designated adult is present. The children will be in the Sanctuary until picked up. Feel free to join in the Gathering time at 7:40 in the Sanctuary to see what the children are doing.


It will be most helpful in our planning if you would PRE-REGISTER your child. Registration forms may be filled out below or from either of the church’s offices. Also, registration can be done during suppertime on the first night. If your child is unable to attend the first night, they may come on Tuesday or Wednesday. We must have the form filled out prior to 6 pm, the beginning of Vacation Bible School.
