"The VBS that's just the ticket!  Climb aboard for mountains of fun at Rocky Railway!  On this faith-filled adventure, kids discover that trusting Jesus pulls them through life's ups and downs."

Most, if not all, local schools returned to in-person learning in late spring and COVID-19 cases continue to decline.  For this reason, through much prayer and consideration, we have made the decision to return to a more normal-looking Vacation Bible School this year.  Yes, you have read this correctly.  We will have in-person VBS this summer!  Let's give God some praise! 

Throughout the week, students will learn about the power of Jesus.  Below are the Bible points, stories, and key verses for each night.

Each night, students will enjoy a number of activities.  During Bible Adventures, students will hear each of the aforementioned scriptural accounts.  At Imagination Station, students will express their creativity while learning Biblical truths.  Students will enjoy a variety of outdoor tasks and challenges during Loco Motion Games.  Each student will also enjoy a delicious meal during Chew Chew Snacks.  All students will also be making a joyful noise unto the Lord during the music rotation each night.  

As best we can, we will continue to practice social distancing of at least three (3) feet with sanitizing stations available throughout our facilities.  Masks may be worn at the discretion of the parent/guardian.  We respectfully ask that all students be registered electronically this year due to the ongoing pandemic situation.  To complete your child's (or children's) registration, please click here.  You may also click the interactive button above the Rocky Railway logo to access the registration form. 

We look forward to having these students back inside our facility this summer to learn more about the One who shed His life's blood for all.  Make plans to join us!
