Each year, the summer at Weatherly kicks off with a Sunday night community-wide cookout that welcomes everyone to a week of Bible study, games, crafts, snacks and fun at Vacation Bible School. The VBS program at Weatherly has devoted followers from the church and surrounding area who attend year after year after year. A few guests have commented that they enjoy bringing their children because of the ‘Mayberry’ like atmosphere. With often as many adult and youth volunteers as participants, every child can be assured of special care and attention throughout the week. Relationships are built that are cherished for a lifetime as children learn that God loves them infinitely just the way they are.
Our VBS normally is held during the first full week of June. The dates for 2017 are June 5 – 9 and registration may be completed on-line. Curriculum for the past few years has been developed by Group Publishing or Cokesbury. Recent themes have included Weird Animals, Nazareth: Where Jesus was a Kid, Everywhere Fun Fair & Camp Discovery. Children who are four years old by the first day of VBS – rising 6th graders are invited to join the fun and, as always, to bring a friend! Nursery is provided for the younger children of VBS volunteers.
