June 18 – 22, 2018

9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Ages 4 through 6th Grade


In this year’s Hero Central VBS, we will take kids on an awesome adventure alongside some of their favorite Bible heroes and discover the qualities that make us truly heroic in God.  VBS kids will enjoy and interactive, energizing, Bible based good time as they discover their strength in God.  They will become Heroes and explore how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives.  They will also expand on what they’ve discovered by participating in a variety of activities:  making their own art projects at Craft Headquarters, singing new songs at Music Headquarters, exploring the wonders of creation at Science Headquarters, and enjoying tasty treats at Snack Headquarters.  Along the way, the Heroes will hear about our mission project as they respond to a call for action!

Hero Central is for kids ages 4 through 6th grade and will run from 9:00- a.m. – 12:30 p.m. each day.  On-line registration begins March 1, 2018 and will close when we reach capacity so be sure to register early to secure your child’s spot for this fun, Christ filled, educational week!

Volunteers are needed for preparation and the week’s activities. Sharing your time and talents to help plan, decorate, set up, and teach are a great way to lead by example and demonstrate your stewardship. Vacation Bible School is an important outreach ministry of our church. We are blessed that this community ministry continues to grow each year. But we need help in order for this ministry’s continued success. Make a difference in the lives of our children and our community. Our most important need is co-leaders or assistants during the week of VBS.  To volunteer during the week:  https://silverspringumcp.tpsdb.com/OnlineReg/88

Please note:  We are a Safe Sanctuaries congregation and all volunteers that work with children and/or youth during the week of VBS must attend a training, complete the required forms and submit to a background check being obtained.

We also need help with decorations, scenery, and other take home preparations. If you would like to help, or need more information, please contact Marie Matthews, Director of Children and Family Ministries at 301-587-1215 or [email protected]
