Belmont Baptist Church

VBS – Vacation Bible School

VBS is coming!!!

June 10 - 14, 2018 ~ 6:00 PM - 8:45 PM

This VBS is open for potty-trained three-year-olds through entering 5th grade and bible study is also available for adults. (Nursery will be provided only for children whose parent or guardian attends the Adult VBS Class or work as a volunteer.)

We need volunteers and would love to hear from anyone interested in volunteering at this year's VBS. All volunteers must have a background check. If you have not already had a background check at Belmont, please register as a volunteer early to give us time to get one done.

Register  for VBS  (Volunteers and Participants)

If you are registering more than one child be sure to set the number to the total number of children, before hitting the checkout button.  This will allow you to reuse some of the info entered for each child from the first child entered.

Ages: 3 year old's through entering 5th grade and an adult class!

Group's Shipwrecked VBS

This summer, become marooned in Shipwrecked VBS —an exploration of discovery they’ll never forget! Based on five key bible verses that will change a child’s life.  Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms.

Five Bible verses, five biblical truths, five days of discovery and an experience that can last a lifetime:  ShipWrecked will bring your kids closer to Jesus, every day. This year's vacation bible school will begin on Sunday night, and end on Thursday with a parent's night on the following Sunday.  Sunday night through Thursday night will be regular classes, and at the family night on the following Sunday, the children will get to share what they have learned.

Additionally, we will continue to have an adult class, and just like the kids, members and visitors alike are invited to attend and there is no cost.  So bring your kids and stay for a lesson and a time to fellowship with other adults in their walk.

Helpful Information:


While supplies last, we will have themed T-shirts available for purchase for $10 before and after VBS each night.  They may also be purchased from the church office in advance of VBS.  Please call 813-988-1501 for more information.
