— Batten down the hatches and prepare to be Submerged! Join us for a week of exploring below the surface. Kids will begin their exploration each day on what lies below the surface in the deep sea by creating crafts, playing fun games, enjoying tasty snacks, singing cool songs, and learning about missions. Kids will discover that Jesus saw people for who they were deep down, not who they appeared to be on the surface.

It’s Vacation Bible School at Emmanuel Baptist Church like you’ve never experienced before!
