Adventure Week (extreme VBS)
For kids entering Kindergarten–completed 5th Grade
Adventure Week is our annual interactive celebration of the salvation offered to us through Jesus. It’s not just Vacation Bible School, it’s so much more. That’s why we’ve nicknamed it extreme vbs. Adventure Week involves children in the life and times of biblical days. Children learn the trades of the day in the Marketplace, participate in high energy songs, and “travel” to the mission tent where they learn about foreign and local mission work.
Children also participate in mission work like bringing food items for the church pantry which helps feed the needy in our own community, working on community outreach projects, and raising money for important projects overseas, like safe housing for street children and translating the Bible into new languages. Each year we invite visiting missionaries to share their experiences with the children.
Drama presentations, craft activities, recreation, snack time with modern and biblical foods, and daily lessons taught in character by a biblical figure all make Adventure Week at Severna Park EP the most exciting week of summer vacation. Children prepare songs to sing at a special Parent Night presentation on Thursday and the week closes on Friday with a giant party and picnic for all Adventure Week families on the church lawn.
Our adventure takes place Monday–Friday mornings the first full week after July 4 each summer.
