VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Summer break is a special time that offers our Church family an opportunity for Bible study and evangelistic outreach. Vacation Bible School is scheduled each year at least 2 full weeks after the school year ends. Mt. Vernon's Vacation Bible School (V.B.S.) starts on Wednesday and ends on Friday (3 days - 2 1/2 hours per day; 5:30-8:00 p.m.). VBS is for all ages from babies to adult with classes for 6 age groups. Goals for V.B.S. include a stimulating Bible-based program for the children, having a program that is entertaining and enlightening, and offering the adults of the church an opportunity to become involved in a hands-on approach to the Christian education of our youth.
