Keepers Of The Faith: VBS 2024

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!

VBS 2024: Keepers of the Faith: A Knight’s Quest for Holiness

Kids from all over are hereby summoned to join us for an extraordinary adventure at Calvary Chapel Chino Valley for VBS 2024, where valiant youngsters will undergo the ultimate training to become gallant knights who pursue holiness. Kids will embrace Biblical chivalry and undergo an unforgettable morning of live-action worship and Bible studies. They will take on quests that include outdoor activities, crafts, and snacks that they will remember all summer and beyond!

“Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, conduct, in love, in spirit , in faith, in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12

 

During the past two summers, we devoted our time to studying the scriptures, marveling at His works, and uncovering our true identity as those wanted by God. As we embark on our next VBS adventure this summer we will explore the age-old question, “What am I called to do?”

As heirs to God’s kingdom, we are called to bring glory and honor to Him through the way we live, the way we speak, and the way we love.

Throughout our captivating 5-day VBS program, we will dive into the wisdom of 1 Timothy 4:12. Here, we will discern how our words should be “seasoned with salt”, our conduct and character an outward display of our relationship with Christ, our love like that of Jesus, our humility and selflessness shining through, and our consecration to a higher purpose.

This summer, our hope and prayer for the children are that they will further develop their relationship with the Lord, discovering that no matter their age, they have the potential to serve as a shining example to others in their journey of following Christ.
