According to Facts & Trends, two thirds of American parents plan to send their kids to Vacation Bible School. If you are looking for a VBS program in the Twin Cities where your kids can learn Bible Lessons and have new adventures, we have some options. Thank you to our marvelous Facebook Community for recommending many of these churches. We’ve added your testimonials to those entries.
We have begun adding 2022 programs as they are announced. When new information is not available, we include information on last year’s program to give an idea of what to expect.
