Grab some cotton candy! The gates are opening at Wonder World Funfest. Vacation Bible School is coming to SHEPHERD’SGROVE this July from the 19th to the 23rd from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. With this fair theme, your kids will experience a bustling fairground, carnival activities complete with circus acts, a talent show, and more!

In the Bible lessons, students will get the chance to marvel at the Scriptures’ revelation of Jesus long before He came to earth and at the showstopping events of His earthly ministry. Amazed by Jesus, students will learn to love Him and live for Him. WE LOVE HOW Wonder World Funfest uses the thrill of an amusement park to show kids how amazing the story of Jesus is, and with an emphasis on evangelism, kids will learn profound theological truths that equip them in their daily lives long after VBS is over.

It will be a wonderful experience you won’t want to miss!

Whether your kids are in elementary school or are still in diapers,
there’s a special place for them at Shepherd’s Grove.


At Shepherd’s Grove Children’s Ministry, we ensure your child’s experience is a positive and safe one. During our 9:45 am and 11:00 am services, kindergarten and below are nurtured in our Early Childhood rooms (located in the Jenny Hart Building, across from the Sanctuary), while kids in 1st through 6th Grade learn about Jesus in a safe, fun, hands-on and creative setting in our Children’s Ministry area (see the sign in the Jenny Hart Building for your child’s room).

Join us on our Facebook page where we are updating and connecting regularly during this unprecedented time! 

K & Below / In the Early Childhood rooms, we introduce children to Jesus through care that exemplifies the love of Christ. Through stories, music, and play, we show your kids just how much God cherishes them.

1st-6th Grade / For kids 1st through 6th grade, check your children in prior to service — they will join you in the Sanctuary for the beginning of the worship service then be dismissed to meet their teachers on the patio. We use fun and creativity to communicate the love of Jesus and truth of God’s Word!

If you have any questions about Children’s programs at Shepherd’s Grove, please visit the CONNECT table on Sunday or email us.
