2020 Vacation Bible Camp Update

*posted July 17, 2020

Your children’s safety and our ability to provide a healthy environment for them are our top priorities. As we’ve continued to monitor COVID-19, reopening guidelines and recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to cancel 2020 Vacation Bible School (originally scheduled for August 24-28, 2020) for the safety of everyone involved. 

We pray for your family’s well being during these uncertain times, and hope to see your little ones again very soon.  We will update this page with additional information, virtual resources, and more when available. Please check back for updates and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Last Summer's MANE Event was an Epic African Adventure!!

At Community Church, we care about kids, their faith and their families, and love for them to be a part of each summer's adventure! Every summer, it is our prayer that kids will discover a wildly refreshing understanding of how God is good—touching lives, changing hearts and drawing them closer to God.  


At Roar VBS last summer, kids explored God’s goodness and celebrated a ferocious faith with a week of fun and exploring in a wild setting. We kicked off every day with a rousing rally of music and silly games, and held special events throughout the week, including a bonfire and dinner on Thursday evening after the closing concert. Be sure to check back for details about this summer’s VBS plans!

The pastors, staff, and teachers of Community Congregational Church ensure that VBS activities and lessons are not only age-appropriate and fun, but are theologically sound and inclusive of all. We are aware that two of the activities provided by the curriculum’s publisher (Group) are, by their own admission, racist and inappropriate for children. They will not be included in our program. We are committed to providing a positive environment for your children to learn and grow in their faith.

Contact Pastor Jennifer Hrynyk at Jennifer@CommunityChurch.org

with any questions about this year's cancellation,

camp curriculum, or camp activities.

We always look forward to a week of fun camp activities with your kids! Vacation Bible Camp is a great way for your children to discover how God is an exciting part of their lives, while they explore foundational principles of Christianity in a nurturing, caring, and fun environment. If you have any questions about camp - or any other program at Community Church - I'd be happy to speak with you!
