Vacation Bible School 2021

Knights of North Castle Vision

North Castle is hidden in a frozen land.  The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor.  But the armor isn’t what they think it is.  Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power!  Kids will take on the role of brave knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book.  They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor—-the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation—-at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.  Help kids take up the gauntlet and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God!  Our Quest for the King’s Armor is based on Ephesians 6:10-20. 

Ages 4 through 6th Grade

But we will incorporate any teens or tweens into our family guide helpers if  they would be interested in leading.

This VBS is designed to allow families to participate together .
