VBS is an amazing summer children’s experience at the Harrisburg Brethren in Christ Church. Send your kids to an imaginative, impactful adventure!


At Harrisburg BIC’s Shipwrecked Vacation Bible School (VBS) program, kids discover that Jesus rescues – Jesus cares about them personally and will be with them through life’s toughest circumstances. Shipwrecked is filled with memorable Bible-learning activities for kids to see, hear, touch, and even taste!

So, invite a friend and join us at Shipwrecked VBS this year!



Each evening, Sunday, July 7 – Thursday, July 11



Check-in occurs at 5:45 pm each evening. Each day’s fun begins at 6:00 pm, and pick-up is at 8:30 pm in the Sanctuary. Parents/guardians are also welcomed to attend the closing program each evening from 8:15-8:30 pm (Sunday – Wednesday).



We collect an offering each night (Sunday – Wednesday) of VBS.  We will be collecting money for “Kayaks for Kenbrook.” Kenbrook camp is in need of new kayaks and canoes. Our goal is $1000. And as in the past, we will also be collecting non-perishable food on Thursday night to donate to the HBIC Food Pantry.
