Each summer Tomah Baptist Church has a Vacation Bible School for children grades 1 through 6. Traditionally, it’s held the week following the close of school.
Set in an exciting and fun thematic environment, our lively VBS program engages the children in discovering how we can train each day for life and godliness, and learn more about His Word. Everyday we have a Bible skit, sing fun songs, daily lessons about Jesus Christ, missionary stories and so much more! On the final day, there is a special closing program for families and friends. It is a spiritual, fun-filled week for all!
This year's VBS Theme Verse:
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2
Monday-Friday, June 6-10, 2016 @ 9AM to 12 Noon Daily!
Get ready for some friendly competition to Go for the Gold!
Have you ever wished you could compete in the world-famous Olympics? Perhaps win a gold medal?! If your answer is yes, it's time to pack your athletic bag and head straight for the Olympian locker room! You are invited to enter the exciting, adventure-filled race of to Go for the Gold! We LOVE Vacation Bible School at Tomah Baptist Church! With the Summer Olympics slated for this year, we couldn't resist doing an Olympic-themed VBS. We are putting together five big days of non-stop fun. We’ll discover the joy of being on God’s Team in Action! Start each morning in the Olympic Breakfast Center, then race to all the arenas to enjoy our team challenges, and buzzer-beating Bible lessons, championship crafts, record-breaking recreation, team cheers, Bible verse memory challenges, an exciting missionary story, and amazing prizes! This year, our missionary story will feature the inspirational life of Olympic runner, Eric Liddell.
Our featured guest speaker this year is Pastor Dan Mielke of First Baptist Church of Milltown, Wisconsin. His enthusiasm and passion for God and people has been an asset to his church and community. You will also have a chance to meet one of the original Olympians—all the way from Greece! Our special guest will be sharing special lessons that include:
MON - God created the world. (Genesis 1:1)
TUE - God created me. (Jeremiah 1:5)
WED - God knows and cares for me personally. (Matthew 10:30)
THU - God loves me and died for me. (John 3:16)
FRI - God has a purpose for my life. My life has meaning. (John 10:10)
We’ll JOIN IN, TEAM UP, GET STRONG, KEEP ON AND CELEBRATE as we live out our own Olympic adventure with God. At the VBS Olympics, you can join God's Team and train to run the life-long Christian Marathon, which has a heavenly prize waiting for you that is more awesome than all the olympic "gold" in the world!
Don’t sit on the sidelines! Go the distance! Begin training for the biggest event this summer!
