This year's Vacation Bible School theme is "Daniel: A Story of God-Sized Courage." VBS runs nightly from 6:30 - 8:30 from Sunday, June 24th until Thursday, June 28th.

Kids: Bring your friends and your Bible. Start memorizing Bible verses to earn some cool pins: Isaiah 41:10, Ephesians 6:10, Psalm 4:3, Romans 1:16, Psalm 9:10, 2 Corinthians 5:15.

High School: Help out with Children’s VBS or attend the adult program.

Adults: The theme for VBS 2018 is having a “God Sized Courage” for living out life’s journeys. Ray Butler and his team will bless us with dramas, music, teaching, and a new segment where some Fairmount members will give testimonies of how faith and courage enabled them to survive some of life’s most difficult moments. Each evening will begin at 6:30pm with a video showing VBS highlights from the previous day. At 6:45pm, Ray will begin to lead us on a spiritual adventure.

This year, because of scheduling and other unexpected happenings, we are unable to offer a meal during Adult VBS. We’ve had a number of discussions and pursued many alternatives, but nothing proved doable within the time frame available. We apologize and hope to have this resolved for next year. So please, eat dinner before coming to VBS.

Bring a friend that may need some hope and encouragement to our adult VBS so they can discover the courage only God can provide.
