Chestnut Ridge Church of God

HUBBARD – Welcome to ROAR! Life is wild – God is good, the theme for Vacation Bible school at Chestnut Ridge Church of God, 7215 Chestnut Ridge Road, Hubbard. VBS will be 6 to 9 p.m. July 15 through 19 for children, grades K through 6 (completed). It will begin at a Safari Celebration, where kids will sing, shout, praise, pray, and be introduced to a Bible story and the daily theme. Every station is designed to reinforce the daily Bible Point in a hands-on, interactive way that keeps everyone engaged. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Other sites at ROAR include Wild Bible Adventures, where kids will explore the Bible story in a variety of interactive ways; Hungry Herd Cafe where kids fill up on snacks; Stampede Sports where kids have time to move around and have fun; Creation Station is where cool crafts will be made. Then after kids experience the activities of the night, they gather back at Safari Celebration to be encouraged to love God and to be motivated to serve others. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily for this special time during Safari Celebration at 8:35 p.m. All these fun activities connect to the Bible story, Bible Memory, and the truth that God is with us wherever we go.Info: For this free event, call to pre-register at 330-534-0084 or visit our online registration link at: If you call the church to register your child, we are requesting parents to come into the church on their first night, to fill in and sign the back of our registration cards, which has a “Photo and Video Permission” section.
