We’re so excited your child can join us this year for an AWESOME week of FUN as we PRESS PLAY! and learn that because of Jesus, we are known, we belong, we are forgiven, and we can make a difference!

Vacation Bible School will take place June 7-10, 2021 at the Otterbein Church (912 South Potomac Street).

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Amanda Myers, Director of Children's Ministry at Otterbein. 


We are no longer accepting Vacation Bible School registrations online.  However, we are super excited to have your child join us.  

Please plan to arrive at 6:00 p.m. so you have time register before Vacation Bible School begins at 6:15 p.m. When you arrive, please enter into the church lobby and go to GUEST CENTRAL where we will help you register.  We will be accepting new registrations every night of Vacation Bible School.  If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Myers, Director of Children's Ministry at 717-762-7147 x 231 or amanda.myers@otterbeinchurch.org.

Important Information


Drop Off & Pick Up

Arrival Time: 6:00-6:15 p.m.

Once you have arrived, please report to the Children’s Check-In area to check in your child. You will receive an alphanumeric label for you and your child. Please attach the label with your child’s name to the front of their shirt. The other label is yours to keep and must be presented when picking up your child. If you are planning to have someone else pick up your child, please make sure to give them this label so they can present it at pickup.

Please take your child to the Worship Center double doors where a guide will help them find their grade-level small group. *Pick-up/dismissal will be from the same location. To prevent confusion and congestion, PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE WORSHIP CENTER during dismissal time.

Please report allergies (including, but not limited to, food allergies and insect allergies) or other special needs to the Press Play staff at check-in.
