VBS 2020

Stay-cation Bible School - Join Messiah on a Rainforest Adventure!!

Explore the canopy! Join us for a Rainforest VBS Adventure program that is full of faith-filled fun for ages 3 through 6th grade (Fall 2020)!

Set in the canopy of a vibrant and exciting rainforest environment, we will discover that everyone can do their part to care for God’s creation.  Each day offers Bible stories that emphasize stewardship, combined with a jungle of hands-on, fun filled activities, kids will learn that it is fun and faithful to share the good news of Jesus’ love with everyone!

As we see bright spots in the current health crisis, it continues to be very fluid, and Messiah’s priority is to keep everyone safe and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.  Although we will not be offering our normal on-site VBS inside our church walls, we will celebrate being at home with Staycation Bible School!  This year we are changing things up a bit bringing all the fun and excitement to your home!  We will be offering our Staycation Bible School July 13 -July 17.

When you register, we will put together a family box of fun just for you!!  It will include everything your children will need to have a fun faith filled VBS experience at home.  Each child will receive packages for each day that include a video and written instructions, plus all the materials they need to participate in the activities.  Since videos and music cds will be provided, you can join them at home in your living room at your convenience.


  • Click here to register!
  • You will register as a family, but make sure to include each child individually so we can make sure that each child participating will have their own supplies inside your family box of fun!
  • The last day to register is Sunday, June 28, 2020.
  • Registration fee of $5 per child that will be collected at packet pick-up. (Half of these monies will be used to help purchase supplies and the remaining will be used as our VBS mission offering to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo Rainforest exhibit.  Any extra donations beyond the registration fee will go towards the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo).
  • We will also be collecting school supplies to donate to Fort Wayne Community Schools.
