Calvary Bible Church presents

The Incredible Race: One Family, One Race, One Savior

July 8-12, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM

A race. But not just any race. A race filled with fun clues to find. A race loaded with interesting challenges to attempt. A race around the world that's a global scavenger hunt like you've never seen.

At the same time, it's about another race. A race that began at the garden of Eden and continues until this day. A race made up of all the people from all time. What race? The human race.

As we move from continent to continent in The Incredible Race from Answers VBS, we'll make stops at various times before, at, and after the hugely important tower of Babel incident and see how it matters greatly today.

For over 20 years, we at Calvary Bible Church have been hosting children for a week-long Vacation Bible School. We invite your child to join us this year for a week of studying the Bible, watching engaging skits, creating exciting crafts, playing fun games, and the crowd favorite, eating snacks! Registration is free and space is limited, so sign up today.

This event is for children entering grades K-6.
