Dear Rivermont Families,
With the COVID-19 crisis still at hand and the State quarantine in place until June 10, the Pastors, Ann Knight, and the VBS Council have decided to defer Vacation Bible School scheduled for June 22-26. There are so many unknowns and the safety and health of our children and volunteers is of utmost importance.
Since we always look forward to VBS, seeing God work in the lives of our children and through our volunteers, we hope to have a “mini-VBS” later in the summer. We made this decision now so that we can work on other fun and impactful ways to reach our children and families during our current situation, along with planning for when we are able to meet on campus together.
Thank you for your prayers and your continued support of our Children’s Ministry.
P.S. Looking ahead to summer of 2021, we will use the Rocky Railway theme.
2021 VBS Theme:
Rocky Railway: Jesus' Power Pulls Us Through
Theme Overview: The VBS that’s just the ticket! Climb aboard for mountains of fun at Rocky Railway! On this faith-filled adventure, children discover that trusting Jesus pulls them through life’s ups and downs. Click here for "Sneak Peak"

Your Power Will Pull Us Through
We had 187 children enrolled for the 2019 VBS. It takes around 100 volunteers to make our week successful! Our Vacation Bible School happens because of our many volunteers who pour themselves into the lives of the children. A nursery for infants through 4 year olds is offered for the children of our volunteers.
Please email Ann Knight, our Children's Ministry Director, with questions or for more information.
