It's a Vacation Bible School like no other!
Kids will race from continent to continent uncovering clues and attempting challenges as they fill their score cards.
They'll also discover that, no matter where we live, what shade of skin we have, or what language we speak, we are all part of the same race—the human race—and all part of the same family from Adam and Eve through age-appropriate curriculum.
As they examine the events surrounding the tower of Babel, kids will learn that God is calling people from every tribe and nation through his Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. And that he wants us to share this good news in kindness and love with our neighbors nearby and far away.
Join our vacation bible school, The Incredible Race, and experience God's love for every tribe, language, and nation!
