Jesus gives us some amazing reasons to throw a party: friendship, belonging, forgiveness, life, and purpose can all be found in a relationship with Him. VBS 2024 will be an AMAZING week of FUN as we discover that followers of Jesus have a LOT to celebrate! Who is invited to the party? EVERYONE in (current) Kindergarten through Grade 5! Join us as we START THE PARTY!

Vacation Bible School will be held June 10-13, 2024, from 6-8:15 p.m. at Otterbein Church (912 South Potomac St).


Our online pre-registration is now closed. Arrive early and you can register tonight when you arrive!

Children entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2024 are invited to attend our VBS Preschool Preview Night.
