VBS is Coming Soon!

“Christy, why are you already talking about Vacation Bible School?”


My family, my friends, church members, and strangers have asked me this question over and over. Yes, it is 37 degrees outside as I write this and Yes, VBS is June 3-6, which is 110 days away. (who’s counting? Maybe just me 😊)

What is the big deal about VBS at First Denton you may ask?  Well, the big deal is VBS is unique in that it provides a concentrated dose of biblical teaching for our own children, as well as the opportunity to reach the lost in our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. VBS is the Super Bowl of Kids Ministry events at First Denton. VBS is essentially a Mission Trip that does not require a passport or a suitcase. Serving and being a part of this wonderful week of concentrating our energies, efforts, resources, and gifts is a beautiful love offering to our Lord Jesus. 

I am so excited about this year’s Bible study focus, which is the Amazing Encounters we will have with Jesus. Day 1 will be an ENCOUNTER with Jesus in the Temple as a young boy. Day 2 will be an ENCOUNTER at the river when Jesus is baptized. Day 3 will be an ENCOUNTER at the tomb when we see JESUS IS ALIVE! Day 4 we will ENCOUNTER Jesus on the road to Emmaus as he appears to the men after His resurrection.

Please prayerfully consider joining our VBS team as a Bible Study leader, Missions helper, Craft helper, Music helper, Snack helper or preparer, Decision Day helper, VBS follow up friend, or registration helper.
